Robot Description: Team 237’s robot was designed with a 6 wheel drive system that was powered by single speed transmissions. This robot had a dual pivoting arm mounted to it. At the end of the arm was a roller claw that was able to take possession of an inflated tube and pivot it into any orientation. This allowed the robot to place a tube anywhere on the rack in the exact orientation it needed to be.
