Human Player - Auton/Teleop

Hello!
My team and I were going through rules and we were having a discussion about the human player shooting during autonomous, but we weren’t entirely sure if it was allowed later on during the teleop mode. We weren’t sure if they would later make it clear later on as the season progresses.

Have a good season and good luck! :slight_smile:

Human players can’t shoot during teleop, they can only give balls to the robot during that time period.

Human Player can only score in AUTO if you read the rules…this is an xfactor though as there is no limit to their scoring in auto

Your limit is the availability of Cargo, isn’t it?

Yes but technically, since CARGO returns its unlimited (In 15 seconds of Auto Play)

Cargo returns?

It does not stay in the HUB

It’s randomly dropped back on the field so not delivered to the human player in anyway

While true, you got a 50% chance the ball rolls towards the terminal, let alone actually making through the terminal. You might get lucky though.

But a great robot may have a sensor to intake and deliver it anyhow then n HP could shoot it, or the robot could. Always open your mind to what is possible.

The number of CARGO is limited (14), and they are all on the field unless a robot passes it to a human player through the hub. So before a human player can shoot, it requires a robot to make a pass.

Or the robot can score either way there is no limit other than time

Is the robots good enough to find cargo on the field in auton, it’s probably gonna have auto shooting ability as well

The balls would not go from the hub all the way to the terminal a robot would have to pass the ball to the human player.

There’s 11 Cargo per side on the field, with 1 staged in the Terminal at the start of the match–Section 6.1.1. There’s an additional 1 right in front of the Terminal. HP gets 1 shot in Auto unless fed.

I thought a rebounding robot that only passed cargo to the HP and didn’t score either goal on its own would have been fun, but no such luck.
