Beacon Pusher

Beacon Pusher

Our robot has two beacon pushers, one for autonomous and one for Tele-op. The Beacon pusher for autonomous is on the side of our robot. It uses a liner slide to extend out until it hits and activates the beacon. To achieve this we use a color sensor to see the targeted color and an ODS sensor to stay on the white line. The Beacon pusher for Tele-op is just a shaft collar on a flat piece of texrex covered in duck tape. Its not the fanciest but it works effectively. This is mounted on the front for easier and quicker scoring.
