Anomaly was our 2nd robot created in the Velocity Vortex season. Throughout the lifespan of Morton, we were planning this robot as well. We begun to plan this robot in November after our PA Eastern Qualifier. After our last New Jersey meet of the season, we had a 1 month break until our next tournament. In that month we worked tirelessly to create Anomaly. Anomaly featured the same 6 wheel drive as Morton, but with a few changes. The first thing we changed was adding doubled up omni-wheels in the front of the robot to allow for better turning. We also increased the gear ratio from 1.5:1 to 2:1 so we would be even faster on the field. For our particle shooting, we switched from a dual flywheel shooter to just one flywheel. We switched to one flywheel because of the backspin created on the particles after they were launched. This allowed the particles to come back to the general area of our robot once they landed and it improved our cycle times even further. Along with the new shooter and updated drivetrain, we also added a linear slide system to cap the ball on the center vortex. We used a mix of Rev 15mm extrusion, drawer slides and Actobotics parts to create our lift. With our lift we were able to average a capping time of 12 seconds. We also had improved autonomous programs that continued to score all autonomous objectives but in a faster and more efficient way. By the World Championships in St. Louis, we were averaging 14-16 particles in each match. We consistently hit the 200+ point range with our highest scoring match being a 275 pt. match scored at a New Jersey scrimmage right before worlds. It took a lot of hard work and planning to create this robot, but in the end it was worth it and we are immensely proud of what we learned and created during Velocity Vortex.
