As of now, 3875’s Steel Spider has six different features.
It’s autonomous mode drives backwards for Taxi, intakes, and shoots two balls.
It’s chassis has 6 actively driven wheels, and is very resistant. Due to it’s high torque motors, their robot will not budge if defense is trying to push them.
It’s turret can rotate 270 degrees and take distant shots. It uses auto-align to line up shots and is very accurate. It can also do high hub shots.
It’s intake is powered with pneumatic pistons and quickly picks up cargo using compliant wheels. It is also duel-sided so it can load from both the front and back of the bot.
It’s hopper loads from either intake and uses compliant wheels to quickly take cargo from the intake. Its able to quickly transfer cargo to the turret.
It’s climber uses a telescoping lift and can hang from the middle rung.

Greetings Red Storm high school students, parents, and friends,
We will start the high school FIRST robotics sessions on Thursday, September 9 from 6:30-8:00p with an informational meeting at the Red Storm Robotics build site (EK Freshman campus back/north entrance). This will be an opportunity to learn more about FIRST, Red Storm Robotics, our Fall sessions, and plans for the 2021-2022 RAPID REACTION build/competitions. We will cap off the event with ice cream sundaes for all! Please bring face masks for our indoor activities, as per KPS guidelines.
If you are interested in the team, please complete the information form (even if you have been the team before or can/can’t make Thursday’s meeting).
We have our first off-season competition on Sunday, September 19 at Kettering University. This is a great chance for people who are interested in robotics and robot driving to try their hand at it. If you have a chance, please have your parents register you for the team #3875 now, so you can join us.
We look forward to seeing you!
Wendy & Adam
