Team #1768 is selected as the proud winner of the very prestigious Quality Award sponsored by Motorola Solutions Foundation from a field of 40 teams participating at the WPI District Event held in Worcester, MA during March 8-10th, 2017. As the winner of this award, Team #1768 is recognized as the standout in these categories:
- The entire team demonstrates robustness and quality: workmanship, welds, joints, wiring, paint, pit area, tools, control panel, cart, etc.
- The machine can withstand the rigors of competition – maintaining functionality, including the use of designed-in redundancy, fail-safety etc. that may mitigate failures in competition to gain other advantages (e.g. weight).
- Workmanship is valued and planned in both the machine and support equipment.
Building the machine contributes to the team’s success in FIRST – not just in performance on the field of competition.
- Execution is superb; the machine was built with a detailed plan in mind.
It’s great to be recognized for the complexity and beauty of our robot. Great job, team!
