Antione Trabulsi of Team Genesis spent a bit of time with us last Tuesday at Kwartzlab in Kitchener to talk about his 150lb sumo bot Grand River Express.
Team Genesis - Antione Trabulsi
Antione is a seasoned veteran when it comes to robotic combat and FIRST robotics.
In fact as he outlines in the video a number of parts used in Grand River Express come from FIRST Robotics supplier Vex Robotics.
Vex is a great spot for motors, motor controllers and when it comes to gears and sprockets they are simply unbeatable!
Bonus, the Canadian shop ships out of Mississauga!
Grand River Express uses 6 CIM motors for drive and the Vex 2 speed ball shifter gearbox.
To power those CIM motors Antione uses a mix of Vex Talon SRX and Vex Victor motor controllers.
