  • Description: King Crane is, as its name implies, a giant crane. King Crane competed in the Logo Motion Challenge. It was capable of lifting shaped tubes 2.5 to 9.5 feet high and could deploy a minibot on top of a 10 foot pole on a field that was 27 feet by 54 feet. The chassis was designed as a square in order to support the weight of the 9 foot tower. King Crane was also the first year Team SPORK had a custom dashboard and used C++ programming. Along with new programming, King Crane also used new sensors, such as a string potentiometer, photo switches, and a gyroscope.
