Robot Description: Team 237’s robot was built with a unique drive system. This drive system had a pair of wheels in the rear that were fixed, whereas the front wheels pivoted. These wheels were capable of allowing the robot to traverse the field’s bumps to access any of the zones. A pneumatically driven kicker built into the center of the robot was able to kick the soccer balls into the goals.
