Nemesis’ 2016 robot Daedalus features an articulating intake and flywheel shooter inspired by Team 1114, Simbotics. The intake wraps around the bumper and collects boulders from the field via three polyurethane rollers. The ball is centered using two bent Lexan plates. Two custom gearboxes powered by a miniCIM apiece control the angle of intake to assist in crossing the Portcullis and Cheval De Frise. The geometry of the intake forms a wedge designed to help traverse the remaining defenses.

The flywheel shooter utilizes two 4” Colson Wheels powered by a miniCIM and uses an adjustable hood to change the angle of the shot. Using a camera, Daedalus recognizes the vision target on the goals to determine distance to target. This allows Nemesis to control the angle of the hood and the shooter speed to consistently score from any location in the courtyard.

Implementing autonomous scripting allows Daedalus to choose from multiple different autonomous routines. The adjustable and diverse range of autonomous actions make Daedalus the perfect fit for any alliance.

Daedalus won the Hatboro Horsham District competition and the team is looking forward to compete at the Seneca District, and South Florida Regional.
