MuTan(Clan) Signing Off

MuTan(Clan), as the senior MRDC team, designed a new and radical robot. Considerably more compact than the past robots we have designed, this robot had a host of new hurdles to overcome. Additionally, this robot incorporated several new design ideas, ranging from a completely water-jet cut frame to an all new brush-less drive train to a custom PCB. For those curious, you may find a 3D PDF of it at the bottom of this article. Many of these new designs performed admirably at competition, however we were tripped up by a few unexpected electrical and mechanical issues at competition. Despite these issues, we advanced to the quarter finals, narrowly being eliminated in that match. We are proud of the advancements we have made in this design and new ground broken for future teams. We look forward to seeing how teams take advantage our our new ideas moving forwards!
