FEMA engineers mentor a FIRST team


The local Vicksburg, MI BullBots team finished their 2016 competition season this month with excellent results. The team, comprised of high school students and mentors, designed, engineered, and assembled a robot to participate in the national FIRST robotics competition. FIRST is a youth program "For Inspiration Recognition of Science and Technology". In two events the BullBots team competed well and made it into the semi-finals of the competition! This was truly an outstanding finish for their 5th year participating in the FIRST program. 

The team, led by mentors from FEMA Corporation, built a robot capable of picking up 8" diameter game balls, transporting them across obstacles, and firing them at the opposing team's target. The robot featured a twin motor drive system with 6 powered wheels and 8 non-powered wheels. Game balls were picked up using a loading screw system and fed into a shooting mechanism via a rotating flap lift. Extensive LabVIEW programming allowed the students to drive the robot and control all of its functions wirelessly via twin joysticks.
