Robo Rumble
by: Alex Cormier

Each match will be 2:45 minutes long. First 15 seconds of the match will be autonomous where each robot will be moving on its own. The next two minutes and thirty seconds of the match will be operator control where humans will control the robot. This period is divided into a two minute Operator Mode and a thirty second End Game. The object of the game is to score as many tennis balls in your alliance high goal and the human goal as possible. There will be 28 total tennis balls on the field and each robot will be allowed to start with 1 ball at the beginning of the game.

The Game:

The game is played on a 120" by 95" carpeted playing field. Teams will play in alliances comprised of two robots for a total of 4 robots on the field at once. The object is to have your robot score the tennis balls by shooting them into your alliance high goal. The balls scored in the high goal will come out of an opening at the base of the goal, and ONLY then will the designated human player be allowed to touch the balls. The HP objective is to shoot, at their own discretion, shoot the balls into the human player goal located in the center of the field. The balls scored in either ring of the human player goal will not count for any team until the conclusion of the End Game. During the End Game, and ONLY during this time, robots will be allowed to move the mobile human player goal (mounted on casters). The object here is to have the ENTIRE human player goal in your alliance goal. Accomplishing this task will give your team ALL the points scored in the human player goal during match play. The inner ring of the human player goal will be 12" in diameter, the outer ring 24" in diameter, and the entire structure 18" tall. The high goal will be 12" tall and 8" in diameter.
