Does the entire robot have to be supported by the level 1 HAB to score the three points?


#1

If a deployable ramp was used and it was to come into contact with the carpet, would the robot still get the three points even through it is not 100% on the HAB?


#2

Because the robot is not fully supported by level 1 or above (in this case it’s not being fully supported by level 1), it would not count.


#3

@retrodaredevil is correct. In order to get the hab points, you would have to lift the ramp at least enough that it does not rest on the carpet. A counter weight or spring would make this task easier.
