VRC Spin Up is Pauls second season, and as the CAD design lead, he spends quality time developing the CAD models for team members to follow and build according to the teams timeline. Pauls design talent is also shown in artistic design through the poster design challenge. As the build lead, Paul always brings creative and innovative ideas to improve our robots design to achieve the team goals. To efficiently and quickly calculate match scores for this years game, Paul developed a scoring calculator app for Android and Apple devices.
With his knowledge in Java, python and C++, Paul has recently created a scoring app that was used for the endgame in this year’s VEX Spin Up. The VEX Spin Up game allows teams to throw out multiple strings during the endgame period to receive higher scores. To optimize the calculation in solving how many foam tiles the strings should cover, Paul developed this scoring app that precisely let teams know their individual scores per the component of the game and their final total score, allowing teams to decide their next moves in the following matches.
