Robots

2018 - POE

2018

POE was SERT’s competition robot for 2018. Its lift allows it to place cubes on both the Switch and Scale, and it can also climb. Additionally, its use of vision processing allows it to deliver two power cubes during the autonomous period.

2017 (BunnyBots) - Alluminati

2017bun

Alluminati competed at BunnyBots 2017, where it worked to extract stuffed bunnies from five gallon buckets and push them to one side of the field. Since SERT gained many new members in 2017, the robot was used to train them by allowing them to work on an actual competition robot. This was SERT’s first robot to compete at BunnyBots.

2017 - Phantom

2017

Phantom is our robot designed to play the 2017 game, FIRST Steamworks. It is capable of carrying gears to the airships, shooting fuel into the high boiler, and climbing the rope in the last thirty seconds of the game.

2016 - Gary Spice

2016

Gary Spice, our robot from FIRST Stronghold, was originally a high-shooter but was modified to a low goal scorer during competition season. This robot was our first time using treads, which was an interesting and educational experience for our team.

2015 - Nessie

2015

Nessie, from 2015’s Recycle Rush, was made from recycled parts and lead the team to World Championships for the first time in our team’s history. This robot’s rotating belt with 3D printed hooks picked up and stacked both totes and bins. Nessie won us both the Creativity and the Engineering Inspiration Awards at regional levels.

2014 - Byter

2014

Byter, from 2014’s Aerial Assist was able to quickly score balls in the low goal and sometimes even catch. The consistency of this robot took us to District Champtionships and remains a favorite for community demonstrations due to its sturdiness and interactive possibilities.

2013 - Excaliber

2013

Excaliber, from FIRST’s disc-golf styled game Ultimate Ascent, was an incredibly reliable robot that functioned as a shooter via flywheel.
