Storage Station

The Scout is sized to fit in the same storage cubbies as the Colony III robots, but there are several motivations to creating a dedicated storage solution:
  • Convenient: Scout storage integrates charging contacts
    • Accurately placing the robot in the cubby and centering on charging contacts would be a hassle
  • Connected: Scout storage offers an ethernet connection
    • There is not an elegant way to run cabling across the cubbies
  • Universal: The Scout platform is not designed solely for the robotics club
    • Provide a designed setup that any one can build and use

The Modular Design

  • Each section is modular, and integrates charging contacts and an Ethernet cord to keep the bot juiced up and connected.

Storage Rack

  • The desktop storage units can be connected together and share an Ethernet switch and power connections.
