Angry What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

Well, last season we offered the Chester Challenge Tiki to the first team that capped the center goal with the vision tetra in autonomous mode.

And nobody could do it.......

So we are looking for the new 2006 Chester Challenge.

And we ask- what is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

I'll announce the parameters of the Challenge on Saturday. I have some evil ideas. But you might have something even better.

Re: What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

Hmm... Maybe put all 10 balls though the cnter goal in less than, say, 7 seconds?

Re: What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

How about put all 10 balls in the center goal in autonomous, without using a dead reckoning system? It is the main objective once again, or the highest scoring option.

Re: What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

I think it depends on the accuracy of the camera to green light system this year, but in the past, using the specialized autonomous sensory has been the supreme challenge. I'm going to guess Donut is off because I think that 10 in the center in autonomous can be done w/out dead-reckoning.

I'll put my money on being able to fire a ball into the goal while moving. That means taking into account a lot of factors.

Re: What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

I thought the goal would want to be autonomous again... if not, I agree it should be firing the ball in while moving. But why keep it that simple? They should also have to shoot it from their own end of the field, so it's a half-field shot at least.

Re: What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

I suggest either auto tracking the center goal with the CMU cam and putting a ball in while the robot is traveling at full speed at full speed or and alliance the has every robot put in at least one ball during auton.

Re: What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

I know that historically the tiki goes to one team.

But what about one that goes to the first alliance with a functionally perfect autonomous score of 50 points? You'd have to have all three robots sink all ten balls in all three goals, but I'll bet there'll be an alliance to get it done.

the hardest task this year is the same as every other year:

getting the engineers out of the crate so you can close it up and the FedEx guy can haul it away!

Why couldn't an alliance score 90 points in autonomous mode, wouldn't that be harder, yet possible ?

I agree with this. The time it will take (I think) so shoot the 10 balls will make it difficult to do in 10 seconds...and that's assuming you shoot immediately when autonomous starts...which is somewhat impossible.

actually if all alliances shot then there would be 90 points scored in autonomous

Re: What is the hardest (yet possible) task in this year's game?

I think having an autonomous score of 100, all 30 team balls in the center goal and having the 10 point bonus will be one of the hardest to achieve part of this game.

The thing is, is that really possible? Can any alliance shoot all thirty balls into the center goal in ten seconds? My gut instinct says you won't see that happen. Ten, though, is entirely possible.
