Robot facts

  • First 2468 robot to compete with swerve drive

Team 2468 had an intense season of constant improvement. The team started out the year as an average tier team but the team’s constant iteration of the design led to being qualified for World Championships in four different ways. The robot, Orion, performed as one of the best scoring robots at the Championships event and was eliminated by the world champion alliance in the division semifinals.
