Recycle Rush

RECYCLE RUSH the 2015 FIRST Robotics Competition game involved picking up and stacking totes on scoring platforms, putting pool noodles (litter) inside recycling containers, and putting the containers on top of scoring stacks of totes.


Skyhawk was designed with the purpose of removing recycling containers from the step with the use of extendable arms, made from fibreglass tubing and later changed to carbon fibre. Skyhawk was also equipped with the ability to intake totes and recycling containers through a double-roller manipulator and lift them using a two-stage elevator.
