A major award!


Davison House of Cards robotics team received the Industrial Design Award this past weekend at the FIRST Robotic Competition in Marysville. This distinguished award celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge. Guidelines require the design to be elegant and efficient (simple/executable) and practical. The entire machine reflects a system design approach, i.e., the overall machine design addresses the many functional systems that must operate together. Designing the machine contributes to the team’s success in FIRST – not just in performance on the field of competition. Reliability and maintainability are considered in design. For example, it is capable of withstanding the rigors of the contest and servicing is easy. The entire machine design, or the detailed process used to develop the design, is worPhoto thy of this recognition, and not just a single component.
