2017 Season Overview
This FRC season saw the creation of one of MadTown’s best robots to date—one of the best in the world. Along with the custom-built Swerve drivetrain, the team engineered one of the best shooters and climbers in the competition, carrying the robot to the World Championships held in Houston, Texas. Our robot was capable of succeeding in every aspect of the 2017 game, FIRST Steamworks. Not only did we reach a high rank in the Steamworks game, we proved that Team 1323 has the capability and the drive to achieve huge success, despite originating from a small agricultural-based town where technology is not exactly the main focus.
Madtown Robotics collected a few more victories and awards under its belt this 2017 season. Along side Presentation Invasion (Team 2135) and Citrus Circuits (Team 1678), we won Central Valley Regional once again. As well as winning the competition and qualifying for World Championships, MadTown Robotics won the Engineering and Inspiration Award. We then went on to become semi-finalists at the Sacramento Regional and finalists in the Turing Division at Houston World Championships. While at Houston, MadTown Robotics won the Quality Award, solidifying the fact that we built one of the best robots in the world.
