Robot Description: Team 237’s robot was one of the most unique robots designed for this year game. Using a simple drive system, the robot would drive to one of the pole of the pyramid and grab onto it using a pneumatic claw. The robot would then pivot around this claw until a claw that was built into the back of the robot could grab the pyramid. Using these claws, the robot would somersault of the pyramid to the top scoring position.
