Re: Minnesota Robotics Invitational

We have a ton of new volunteers coming in to be trained at the event too, including a bunch of robot inspectors! While we aren't doing formal inspections, if a group of them come by and ask to do an inspection, it's a great chance for some of your younger students to gain some experience going though an inspection, while they do the same! Of course, if you're too busy or have a match soon, politely decline and they'll move on to another team We'll have an experienced inspector or an LRI with each group, and we very rarely make teams change anything at the event - I can only think of a couple of safety-related issues over the years, and none took very long to fix.

Re: Minnesota Robotics Invitational

This is probably the strongest MN off season event lineup I've seen! Looking forward to seeing how it all plays out!

I will be working the event although i am not affiliated with the host school. I do not think there will be a practice field unless something has changed from years past. Most off season events are not able to provide that luxury. Just putting an excellent off season / training event like MRI on is a MASSIVE undertaking!!

You're a rookie team this upcoming season, right? Just coming to an event like this is going to give you a leg up! Are you bringing another team's practice bot to compete with?

There won't be a practice field - there simply isn't enough room for one! I'm one of the Lead Robot Inspectors for the event - inspectors wear yellow hats, and the LRI's also have a black vest. I can help with any questions or assistance you guys need, and I'll be sure to stop by and introduce myself in the morning!

Re: Minnesota Robotics Invitational

We have cleared it with the organizers and we will be bringing our practice robot. They said they will try to have a room available for people to drive it if they have not had a chance to drive a robot or are interested in seeing how this may drive different than their machine. Just FYI.

They're not your average rookie team... I suspect you'll recognize a lot of them!

Note that these use only in-season data and have no additional off-season correction. This means they are a fair bit overconfident, but should give a general idea of which teams we can expect to do well.

Looks like a pretty stacked event! I'm going to try out scorekeeping for the first time so we'll see how that goes.

Re: Minnesota Robotics Invitational

If 7432 is using Kaotic's practice bot I would move them up in the rankings a notch or 10..

I am certain that they will do well with their own robot! I mean, I have never seen this team in action before...

It's 3026's bot, it looks like Caleb's model is just assigning them some default values for the ranking predictions.
