Lesson 2: Manipulators


In this Lesson, you will learn about what a manipulator is, the difference between passive and active manipulators, and how to design an effective manipulator to make your robot accomplish a task. You will learn about intake manipulators, and how to code an intake in a project for your robot.  You will also learn about how to assign a Drivetrain to your Controller's joysticks, and using motor groups, so that you can prepare to optimize your robot for playing Robot Soccer. You will apply this information to design and build a manipulator for your robot to compete in the One-on-One Robot Soccer Challenge.
