Short Cirucuits Dublin - robot team
We have returned from the Eurobot

our sibling team Short
Our team members are distributed across the world, with developers
being located in Athlone, Ireland (main hardware design centre and
testing paygrounds), in Dublin, Ireland; Prague, Czech Republic and
Stay tuned for some pictures from the development!
Some pictures of Hugo (2006 robot)
Inside the robot. The black L-shaped part is suction mechanism. The
blue helix shape is sorting part (see detail below).
One of many electronic boards.
One wheel with gearbox, encoders and motor and some electronics.
Sorting mechanism - pingpong balls are dropped on the top, where a
latch select their destination. Either the fall through white tube
straight down, or they travel on the blue helix structure around. This
structure works also as a storage area for balls.
