Triple Helix linear actuator FRC Workshop talk

Triple Helix mentor Todd Ferrante presents on the team’s linear actuator designs at the 2016 FIRST Chesapeake FRC Workshops at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.  In the talk, Todd describes the linear actuator design that was used in both our 2015 robot, to raise and lower the cans, and in our 2016 robot, in the climber mechanism.  The accompanying video shows examples of this device in action.
