Task: Make emergency scoring mechanism for competition

With competition only a week away, the team has decided that the rolling tube will not be able to be completed by the competition. We are now switching to a elevator based design with a drive chain. This decision has opened up a multitiude of new builds and with a scissor- wedge design(elaborated in later posts), we believe the final version will help us in the qualifier(atleast more than an incomplete scoring tube).


This change has caused us to put the tube-based design to the side and hopefully come back to it if we qualify. The new design will be based along a grip chain with a claw being driven around a beam along a certain platform. We have different ideas for the details of this design and will elaborate in the next post.
