Dumping Hopper Accumulators

A hopper is a large storage area in which objects are placed. With dumping hoppers, the way objects are released is different than the way they are gathered.

On this robot a claw arm picks up objects and dumps them into the hopper, then the hopper tilts back like a dump truck to score the objects in a goal.
