Crater Cat was built to play the game "Lunacy"!

This game celebrates the 40th anniversary of man landing on the moon and simulates the low gravity of the lunar surface. Robots would run around on a slick surface with slick wheels pulling a trailer. This robot was built to score playing pieces into the opponents trailers and the corner goals. The autonomous mode was successful at getting away from human players scoring into our trailer early.


Robot features:

  • Wide whisker brushes and belt elevator to quickly pick up playing pieces to the shooter.
  • Servo gates to prevent balls from falling out of the shooter.
  • Able to shoot our either side


  • Kansas City Regional, Record 5-5-0, Quarterfinalists.
  • St. Louis Regional, Record 7-7-0, Quarterfinalists.
  • Cowtown Throwdown Off-Season Event , Semifinalists, Imagery Award

Off Season Adjustments:

  • Changed from side shooting to forward shooting. It was easier to follow the opponents trailers than get beside them.
