2005 Season – Triple Play
Game Description: The game for the 2005 season is played on a 27′ wide by 52′ long playing field with the 9 goals configured in 3 x 3 matrix, similar to tic-tac-toe. The robots will attempt to place the red and blue game tetras in or on one or more of the nine goals to score points and “claim ownership” of the goals.

Robot Description: Team 237’s robot was built on a 6 wheel drive system that was powered by single speed transmissions. Mounted on the robot was a dual pivoting arm with an expanding claw at the end of it. This claw would take control of the tetra game piece by squeezing the inside corners. This technique allowed the robot to stack many tetras on top of all the goals on the playing field. A camera that was mounted on the robot was able to track the green and yellow colors that were on the field. During a qualification match at the New Jersey Regional, Team 237’s robot became the first robot in FRC history to autonomously stack a tetra onto a goal by using the camera to control the functions.
