2012 Swerve Module

Creating a swerve drive was an ambitious goal for a rookie FRC team, but we went above and beyond what we thought was possible! Our swerve modules have received a lot of attention on our Chief Delphi topic.

Facts about our Swerve:

  • We run 2 motors per module for a total of 8 motors
  • Each module weighs 6.53 pounds
  • Gear ratio of 8.3:1
  • They have a little over 360 degrees turn radius. This helps prevent breaking wires.
  • 2 Neutrinos spent their entire 2012 build season designing it
  • Designed in CAD
  • Laser cut parts at Quality Manufacturing Corporation
