The Game for This Year!

Transportation is the name of the game! Robots can hold a maximum of two pieces of cargo (Image 1) and must drop them off at the upper or lower hub for one or two points respectively. Robots need to be designed to be versatile, to shoot, and to climb up hangar bars to get extra points. The further up your robot climbs, the higher the points: 4, 6, 10, 15 points respectively. Three teams form an alliance and must work together in three phases against the opposite alliance. The three phases are: Autonomous, Teleoperator, and Endgame, in Autonomous the robots are driven by preprogramed code, picking up and shooting balls, in Teleoperator the robots are controlled by human operators doing the same, and lastly in endgame, robots can try for the bonus hangar points still being controlled by operators.
