*Welcome to the inaugural Dogwood Regional! Redateam is working hard on Redabot’s hybrid mode to get Redabot to knock off a red trackball, cross the red finish line, cross the first lane marker, and come whizzing back across the blue finish line to earn a whopping 20 points! Success has been ephemeral for Redateam so far at Dogwood, but they are hoping that their autonomous mode can earn them notice and perhaps even a pick from one of the top-ranked teams.
In their last match on Friday afternoon, Redateam places their robot on the field, ready to show their mettle. After the Randomizer gets its say, the red trackball is placed on the Red Overpass in the rightmost slot. At the beginning of the match, Redarobocoach signals to Redabot to bear right as it moves deliberately down the home stretch while unfurling its colorful pool-noodle ball-removing device. As its passes under the overpass, Redabot successfully knocks off a red trackball! Dictated by its autonomous programming, Redabot continues down the Red Lane, crossing the Red finish line. When it taps the Blualliance station wall, Redabot backs up slightly and makes a 90 degree turn to the left. Redabot then heads straight for the Blue Home Stretch and a motionless Bluabot! Before Redabot can fully cross the Lane Marker, it hits Bluabot (though not too hard) and comes to a halt. After pausing briefly, Redabot backs up slightly and again makes a 90 degree turn to the left. With every member of Redateam holding his or her breath with anxious anticipation, Redabot takes off like a rocket back down the field as time is running out. However, having not successfully crossed into the Blue Lane, Redabot is in fact heading clockwise back down the Red Lane! When the hybrid game clock strikes zero and the buzzer sounds, Redabot is just 2 feet from the Red finish line and speeding backwards down the Red Lane at nearly 12 ft/s. Redabot coasts across the Red finish line and continues moving until finally coming to rest against the Redalliance station wall. As the teleoperated period begins, Redateam breaths a heavy collective sigh of relief that no damage was done to its revered Redabot.
How many points, including possible penalties, has Redabot scored for Redalliance so far?*
Based on the 2008 Rules, YOU MAKE THE CALL!
