Due to COVID impacting our competition season, we were only able to compete in one competition. Our team made it to the quarterfinals of the Durham College event and was awarded Industrial Design Award.
Polaris was our robot from the 2019 robotics season, Destination: Deep Space. The competition involved having robots pick up large rubber balls and disks and depositing them into the teams cargo bay to score points, and ending the game with climbing onto three different platforms. Polaris was able to deposit the disks onto the cargo bays, and climb to the highest platform, with an extra ability to flip on its side to make room for another team, allowing us to score additional points.
After working tirelessly all build season long, our team competed in two district events, the Windsor Essex Great Lakes event and the Durham College event. During these events we earned District Engineering Inspiration Award and the Innovation in Control Award respectively. We progressed to the provincial competition winning the Judge's Award and placing 12th overall.
Pixel was our robot from our 2018 robotics season. This year's competition involved having robots pick up milk crates and depositing them onto a scale to tip in your favour, and ending the game with climbing onto a bar. Our team worked efficiently at our events and our team's professionalism and efforts garnered us to win the Judges' award.
"Pixel" was one of the few robots during this season to have a scissor lift design used to shoot crates and climb, which made us incredibly unique compared to other teams. Our efforts landed us at rank 16 at the Windsor District Competition, and at the London District Event, we became district event winners for the first time in our team's history. We ended this season at our provincial competition where we were placed at rank 25.
