Someone else asked me this same question on Saturday. My guess would be yes, by definition, the bumper counts. But this would be a good one for the q&a. Also, if you intend to pick up others unrefined (which would be impressive) be careful to only contact one at a time.
If I recall correctly there was a team that successfully built a robot that could score two keepers in autonomous in the 2007 game. I can’t remember which team it was though, and as you said it was VERY impressive.:eek:
The ROBOT includes both the HOSTBOT and the MINIBOT. Since the BUMPERS are part of the HOSTBOT, they are part of the ROBOT. BUMPERS are excluded for size and weight measurement purposes, but they are still part of the ROBOT.
That would be FIRST Team 910, Foley Freeze. They accomplished it in their last match at IRI.
