So we’ve been looking around on the pages of the co-competitors and noticed especially Team QMC took on some of our ideas like using the Omniwheels perpendicularly. We really appreciate that the sharing of ideas is working so well.
Also I think their suction cups and their turning mechanism seem very well constructed. If it works as I imagine, I would really like to see this in action at the competition.
Edit: Team QMC let us know that they did not copy our ideas, but had them themselves. I think it’s nice to see other teams having the same ideas as us and both teams are looking forward to compare their bots in a match. Aside from that, I would like to see more teams participating in sharing their ideas, as Student Robotics is not only a competition but rather a place to meet similar-minded people helping each other out, having fun and building robots.
