HURDLE: When a TRACKBALL CROSSES a FINISH LINE while passing above the OVERPASS
and then contacts either the floor or another ROBOT before re-contacting the originating ROBOT.
HURDLING: The act of completing a HURDLE. To be considered in the process of HURDLING,
the ROBOT must:
be in its own HOME STRETCH, and
be in POSSESSION of a TRACKBALL, and
be moving toward the OVERPASS and/or elevating the TRACKBALL so that the top of the
TRACKBALL is higher than the LANE DIVIDER.
THe top part of this forum is what i am worried about. It states that for a hurdle to occur, the TRACKBALL must touch the ground or another robot before it touches your robot after crossing the finishline. Does this mean that If you carry the ball across the finishline/overpass do you loose the points/hurdle? My team is worried because if you must toss the ball over, we would struggle to build an arm to do this.
