In 2014, a Dover Shockwave student named Avery Munoz became frustrated by messy electronic configurations on robots. He designed the TOTUS Module as a solution to that problem. In the 2015 competition season, Avery was an International Dean’s List Finalist for his work on this project, and his achievements in FIRST competitions.
The TOTUS organizes all of the FRC electrical components and condenses them down into one small box, allowing all components to be removed and worked on quickly and easily. This saves time during competitions, and keeps the electronics out of the way of moving parts on the robot.
This year, our electrical team is working to improve the TOTUS for competition.
