Echo 2.0

Echo 2.0

Echo is a series of two Heavyweight robots built by Team Echo that has competed since RoboGames 2016. Both robots were two-wheeled, invertible drum spinners driven by Jerry Book. The Echo series has done consistently well in RoboGames, never failing to reach the Semi-Finals.

Versions of EchoEdit

Echo 1.0 (RoboGames 2016)Edit

Echo 1.0 was a two-wheeled, gray, and black, invertible box-shaped robot armed with a spinning drum. It was a rather odd looking robot with a large percentage of the body being quite thinner than the rest of the robot. Echo 1.0 did well in competition, going 2-2, and reaching the semi-finals in RoboGames 2016.

Echo 2.0 (RoboGames 2017)Edit

In RoboGames 2017 a new version of Echo (Echo 2.0) was built. It is a compact, two-wheeled, silver, invertible box-shaped robot armed with an even more powerful drum than its predecessor. Also unlike its predecessor Echo 2.0 proved to be quite destructive, causing massive amounts of damage to its opponents, and becoming a crowd favorite. This version of Echo went 3-2, and also reached the semifinals.

Echo KO's Cavalier

Echo 2.0 delivers a knockout blow to Cavalier.

For RoboGames 2017 a new version of Echo (Echo 2.0) was built, Echo 2.0's first ever fight was against Cavalier. For this fight Cavalier's team UTA Combat Robots opted to run the rear wedge on Cavalier. However to do that the team had to remove the conventional drive, and rely on the Omni Wheels as well as remove the self righting mechanism to make weight for the wedge. The team then ran out of time to install the shock mounting for the Omni Wheels, meaning that Cavalier entered the fight badly crippled.[1]

This match was essentially over within three seconds as Echo got up to speed, and box-rushed the crippled Cavalier, knocking it off of its Omni Wheels, and onto its belly. Without its conventional drive equipped this left Cavalier unable to move, and it was counted out. This put Echo 2.0 through to the next round where it faced JCOS Robotics Squad's new robot, Khaos.[1]

Echo 2.0 sends Khaos flying.

This match started with both bots spinning up, Echo struck first popping Khaos into the air. Khaos then shoved Echo, stopping both bots weapons temporarily. Echo then got away, and delivered a massive blow to Khaos that sent it flying through the air, and disabling its flywheel.

However Khaos landed on its wheels, and drove away but not before Echo delivered a minor pop to the front corner of Khaos. Khaos then drove to the side of Echo 2.0, and attempted to shove it into the wall but missed, and slammed itself hard into the wall, and stopped moving and was counted out.

This win put Echo 2.0 into the quarterfinals where it faced Swamp Thing,
