The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.


What’s worse than listening to Dean Kamen’s speeches?

Having to stand in the RoboCoach station during one. You have a remote but it doesn’t work!

“Should we tell him that you don’t need to cover your head in safety glasses?”
“Nah, let the safety advisors tell him”
“They won’t give him the safety award?”

Girl with long hair: “Hmm, is this guy official? He’s got a clipboard, but no radio headset. I guess I’ll ignore him.”

[npoe] Back when I was on queuing at the old Detroit Regional, people thought you must be important if you had a clipboard and a radio. They’d expect me to know the answer to anything. [/npoe]

They’d been told that using a Lexan dividing wall would help prevent the spread of coronavirus. They’d missed the part about being separated from each other by it…

3 watch matches but only 2 watch watches.

Left: Is he seriously controlling the robot with the d-pad on a remote control?
Center: It’s hybrid mode, not restricted controller mode.
Right: I’m glad we put our best channel surfer in as human player.

We couldn’t get the IR remote to work, so we just used an IR camera. We send signals like a third-base coach. Checking pulse means to speed up, grabbing the wrist means the first ball is in the center, and grabbing the thumb means the second ball is on the left. It worked so well that we helped implement it on our alliance partner robots.

Why is the event called PARC when the game is all about the Drive?

Girl on left: “Hmm, FIRST Overdrive? Does that mean you can drive if you are over the age limit? I just really want to drive one of these fast robots.”

New Entry:
Here we see the drive team for the very first completely autonomous robot in FRC watching their robot dominate the game.

Unfortunately they were DQ’d for violating R94, which requires an OPERATOR CONSOLE.

Finals, match 3 tiebreaker:

Left: I think I’m going to pass out but I can’t look away from the match long enough for that to happen.

Middle: I swear the rules said something about using telekinesis in the hybrid period.

Right: Doggone it, we forgot to plug in the battery again.

Yeah, our race is going bad. We caused a caution. And cautions aren’t even part of this type of racing.

Girl on the left: “I have no pulse!”

Let’s get down to business!

First place goes to:

Second place goes to:
