Project Description

Blackbird, affectionately known as Becky, was the robot designed for the 2019 game FIRST Destination Deep Space. It was given one goal, shoot for the stars. It accomplished this goal exceptionally. Through the usage of a 4 bar mechanism, its arm could go from bottom to top in under 2 seconds and could reach any level. It used a claw in order to pick up cargo pods from the ground and could fill up an entire cargo ship on its own, given that another team could fill the hatch panels since the robot had no hatch mechanism of its own. Not only that it could also accomplish a 2nd level climb at the end of the match through the use of its claw and pneumatic pistons at the back-end of the robot.
