Welcome to the FRC 2020 Competition: Infinite Recharge

Welcome to the 31st season of FIRST, the 2020 Infinite Recharge Competition! Team 3482 – Arrowbotics has officially begun the first week of our new build season! In contrast to all previous FRC build seasons, there will not be a stop build day this season. However, we will still strive follow the same efficient and rigorous schedule as we always have, as to ensure adequate time for testing and optimizing our bot. In this year’s competition, two alliances will work to protect FIRST City from approaching asteroids caused by a distant space skirmish. After the announcement of this year’s game, our members began collaborating on various designs, ranging from flywheel-based intakes to carabiners and pneumatic systems – all of which will be modeled in CAD. We started making highly detailed designs to tackle challenges presented by the new game, planning to have physical prototypes ready by the end of the first week. While our mechanical team produces their prototypes, our programming team will compose different methods to tackle both the new game requirements and work on coding the mechanical team’s numerous designs. As such, we will continue to put maximum effort towards our robot, ensuring another successful season for Arrowbotics.
