Hello everyone!

This is just a reminder that I will be updating the New England regional site from the competition tomorrow and Saturday.

Please stay tuned, we hope to get pictures of all the robots up there as well as standings.

Bear with us, this is a FIRST and we are still working out the kinks.

Good luck to everyone at all events this weekend!

Eric,

Thank you for the service. We are going to try to do the same for the midwest regional.

It says on the site that standings will be updated live. Is that still planned? I did not see any standings yet. This would be cool for those of us who are just dying to know how things are going.

Raul

Raul,

We tried our best to get as many pictures up today as possible, along with standings.

Unfortunately, we were unable to post standing until the day was over. Please find the standings at http://www.utc.com/commun/first/eventlive2.html

We will do out best to update this throughout the day tomorrow.

Thank you for keeping an eye on us!

-Eric

Raul,

About 15 or so (1/4 of participants) were designed to limbo. A few were better at it than others (of course).

Tom is probably more correct than I am. I had (and still have) a pretty serious case of jet lag...

Mike and Tom,

Thanks for the followup. I am glad to see that there are many bots that can limbo. This just makes the strategies flow much better.

Raul

We do not limbo. Although our profile can get small enough to fit under, we did not design it with the proper ground clearance to do so. I guess if someone pushed us through we could make it. But what good would that do since it would take so long.

Anyway, we prefer to drive over the bridge so we can quickly line up with it and set our selves up to become a ramp. So we felt it was no advantage for us to do so considering our preferred strategy.

Raul

Raul,

Tell me true, how long does it take you to get over and get lined up with the bridge tilted back to the driver station?

My prediction is that if you can do this in 15 to 20 seconds, you guys will be kings (assuming that the aircraft carrier like deck is as strong as it looks ;-). The longer you take beyond this time, the more likely it is that you will end up in the dungeons.

So? What do you think you can get it down to?

Do tell.

Joe J.

Joe,

Dan and I were discussing it just yesterday. Our drivers have been practicing this move over and over an insane number of times with our practice robot. He reports that they do it under 20 seconds most of the times and they did hit the 15 second mark a few times.

Of course this was practice. We shall see how well they do in the actual competition; especially the first couple of times when they have the jitters. One of the candidate drivers is the same one that drove the past two years - so that should help the jitters.

We learned so much from the mini invitational event, that we changed the controls for the functions to better utilize the 2 drivers and distribute and optimize the tasks they perform. So this helped us minimize the time it takes for us set up as a ramp.

This is the honest truth as best I know it. I do not lie - just ask my kids about my attitude towards lying (you can spit in my face, but don't you dare lie to me). And yes, it really makes me mad when an alliance partner "exaggerates" what they can do. My motto for alliance strategy negotiations is: if you have not demonstrated it, then don't say you can do it!

I like the way you said what your capabilities were. You used the word "theoretically" and mentioned that it had not actually been tested.

How stong is our deck? I have walked all over it! I have gone for rides on it.

Does that answer your questions? I try to avoid bragging because I am a little superstitious. So I will not elaborate, but a I will answer any questions as truthfully as I know.

Sorry for the long reply.

Raul

15 seconds...

Could be a very useful machine...

I can easily see 600 falling at Western Michigan if you get the right partners.

Wish I could attend this weekend's competition.

Good luck.
