Re: No Way That's Gonna Happen!

It would be neat to see autonomous throughout the game. There could be pressure pads a la Triple Play, only reversed. When the HP is on the pressure pad, a teleoperated control is turned off and any scoring done by the robot is counted triple-score.

We ended up with something we wrote on notebook paper at three in the morning, anyway.

Hopefully, this year, we will be one less team with an illegible BOM handed in on a peice of notebook paper.

Next time, put it with the programming laptop, if you have one. Or on it. (Of course, Murphy dictates that then the programming laptop will be left behind... It's just much less likely to stay home.)

Re: No Way That's Gonna Happen!

what about something like Bombing Run in Unreal Tournament, but with robots, you could use baskets that are twelve feet above the playing field , where robots can climb a ramp/steps to get to a 3 foot hight, the ball would reset via human players after someone scores

Re: No Way That's Gonna Happen!

im thinkin that this year is probably not water. maybe soon though. i would have to guess something that will require something of this new control system. so possible multiple autonomous periods. one at the start and one at the end. maybe obstacles that require articulation and maybe a phase in the game where you are required to lose visual of your robot and allow the control system to take over temporarily

Re: No Way That's Gonna Happen!

If you are thinking of making time adjustments you have to remember that the number of teams is growing exponentially each year and you can't have regionals running for 5-6 days. Most likely, the time will stay the same, but instead, another team will be added to the alliances.

Also, as far as multiple autonomous periods are concerned, I don't think it'll be possible {^} instead, i think more teams will use buttons to set off programmed series of movements or automatic movements based off sensors. [we'll definately try] because

As far as the game's concerned, multiple game piece shape/sizes [as in not just changing scale] seems possible and an interesting idea because a universal arm/hand would probably not work
