Robot Description: Team 237’s robot was built on a 6 wheel drive system that was powered by single speed transmissions. This robot was able to collect balls from anywhere on the playing field using an intake system. These balls were brought up a conveyor system that stored the balls until they were ready to shoot. The robots primary feature was a custom built turret that could aim the shooting wheel using its near 360-degree motion. Two large motors shot balls into the goal to score points.
