Peak Performance

Polar Express is Chill Out’s 2016/17 robot competing in FIRST® Steamworks. In its first competition, we made it to semi-finals. At Glacier Peak, the robot was freshly repaired and dominated the field placing us second in the finals.

What’s special about Polar Express is the creativity in design that went into making the robot. The gear collector was designed with passive play in mind, so that we kept gears never dropping them onto the field. The shooter assembly that was made was good but proved to be precise for normal play as gears were a faster method of points. This year we heavy used a Navx for movement, having above 98% success rate for auto programs.

2015-2016 SNOWCRAWLER

Competed at:
PNW District Championship
PNW Mount Vernon District Competition
PNW Glacier Peak District Competition

SNOWCRAWLER is Chill Out's 2015/16 Robot competing in FIRST ® Stronghold. In its first competition, there were serious challenges that the team barely overcome. At Mount Vernon, the robot was freshly repaired and dominated the field.

What's special about SNOWCRAWLER the creativity in design that went into making the robot. The catapult is tensioned with a "Choo-Choo" mechanism and as an arm with latex tubing to both collect boulders and overcome certain defences. The geometry of the robot allows it to glide under certain defences easily and resist damage from opposing alliances or field elements.
