Yes, please review the robot section of the FIRST POWER UP Manual for all season specific rule information.

I base my answers off of the game manual, Q&A responses and field tour videos at the time of my post. Rules will probably be modified or clarified between this post and your competition. My post means nothing to event officials. Please keep up with team manual updates and the FRC Q&A.

Re: Electrical rules

By no means a complete list, but we knew about a few changes before the rules came out:
  • Added new motors (red line, NIDEC at least)
  • Canceled CAN Jaguar
  • Added Victor SPX
  • Several rules related to the NIDEC motor and controller

I also noticed on my first read:
  • R14 D is significantly broader than its analog from 2017.
  • R39 (USB battery packs) is completely new!
  • Of course, software version numbers!

Re: Electrical rules

Probably the biggest change electrically, at least from what my skim-read found, was no more limits on CIM motors. Don't let your mechanical team get too CIM-happy if they want to keep the main breaker intact. Other big addition is USB battery packs, as already mentioned.
