Bumpers, Bumpers, Bumpers

A Webinar Hosted by Team 1796 RoboTigers
Description
For some teams, perhaps too many teams, bumpers are an after-thought. After the design is complete, the robot is manufactured, and the robot is programmed, then we think of the bumpers - constructing the bumpers, painting the bumpers, and mounting the bumpers. Too often, this strategy leads to incomplete bumpers on competition day, failed inspections, or perhaps worst, disabled robots on the playing field when bumpers get left behind. Move bumpers up the priority list. Learn the tricks to make bumpers an asset of your robot both aesthetically and structurally. Good-looking bumpers can be the trick to get your team picked into the elimination tournament or to win a top award. Ensure that your team never loses a match again because the robot was disabled mid-match!
