Our robot

FIRST Steamworks:
Cognitive Dissonance

This year’s robot, Cognitive DIssonance, was made for the 2017 FIRST Steamworks competition


Cognitive Dissonance used an advanced 2-axis cube deployment system


The Winch

This year’s robot used a winch to climb the robot at the end of the match. It works well and reliably



Our robot used an advanced 2-axis deployment system to assist the driver. First, a light emits light. That light is then reflected by the reflective tape back into a camera. The robot’s control software then uses the info to adjust the 2 pistons into exactly the right position, so the driver does not have to be super precise
