With the new season underway, junior team Space Jam has begun formulating a design to defeat all the rest. This year, we’re switching gears from our old habits and trying out a vertical spinner combot. Our team has decided on a novel twist in our electronics that will make our bot unique: using a new drive control method known as Field Oriented Control (FOC). This will enable our robot’s drive to output maximum torque at any RPM, which helps us drive much better. We’ve dived head first into CAD this past week, and the following are some screenshots from our concept sketching. That’s all for now from Space Jam, we’ll see you at EOH!
