Triple Helix mentor Todd Ferrante presents on the team’s west coast drivetrain designs at the 2014 FRC Summit at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. In the talk, Todd describes our efforts to develop a west coast drivetrain, using commercial off the shelf components, for fast building during build season. Our drivetrains have evolved through several generations. Todd describes some of the features of the various versions and talks about lessons learned during the development process.
Follow Triple Helix’s 2014 build season as we design, fabricate, assemble, and test Genome Zeta, the Triple Helix robot for the 2014 FIRST Robotics Competition game, AERIAL ASSIST.
