TiTAN is our second combat robot. He is a full 15 pounds of blood, sweat, and gears that we pumped out for the 2014-2015 season.
The idea behind TiTAN was to create a more destructive robot; something that people would actually FEAR. This robot definitely had that atmosphere to it. The drive system in it was beautiful, as we were one of the fastest robots there, and had lots of torque, so we were able to force opponents wherever with the combination of driving and weapon. Unfortunately, the weapon didn't quite have enough power to it, so we had to drive accordingly. The good news is, the massive amounts of torque and low power allowed the weapon to act like an extra wheel for when the robot got flipped over.
TiTAN was given the name for a few reasons; the first being that he was partially made of titanium, so we used the atomic symbol in his name. The second was that, since he was so strong and fast, it could only be one thing: a titan, one of the most powerful beings in Greek and Roman mythology.
