Meet Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford was our robot for the 2017-2018 FTC season-relic recovery. Ford took his name after Harrison Ford, the actor that portrays Indiana Jones. Ford's primary objective was glyph collecting and depositing. We used a combination of a long arm and mecanum wheels to have Ford accurately place glyphs (blocks) into the pictograph (shelving unit). The long arm gave Ford the reach to place any glyph, bottom to top, into the pictograph. The mecanum wheels gave Ford the movement to perfectly place glyphs.
