« More and more professional ... »
This saison, Robo'Lyon follows Agile methods and especially Scrum method to be the more efficient possible.
Robots need to collect power cells and shoot them through the three power ports to score points. Each port increases in difficulty thus the number of points increases equally: inferior port (1 point), exterior port (2 points) and interior port (3 points).
Robots can pick up balls from the ground or from the Loading Bay from their alliance station. Robots need to cross the field by passing through their alliance trench ou going through the shield generator in the center of the field . At the end of the match, they need to go to the rendezvous point and climb onto the Generator Switch.
HOW A MATCH UNFOLDS
Before the match
At the start of the game, the three robots of the alliance are placed on the Initiation line. Teams can choose to load their robot with 1, 2 or 3 power cells.
The match starts with a autonomous periode of 15 seconds. The robots move thanks to a programme and it is not controlled by the pilote. During this period, the robot has to score points by throwing balls in the three power ports.. All points are doubled during the autonomous period.
The next 2 minutes and 15 seconds are teleoperated. The pilote takes control of the robot and continues to through power cells in the three power ports. While scoring points, alliances successively pass three levels:
Level 1 : Score 9 power cells in the power ports.
Level 2 : Score 20 power cells in the power ports and turn the control panel from 3 to 5 times (10 points). If the control panel is turned over 5 times, the number of turns goes back to zero.
Level 3 : Score 20 power cells and turn the control panel on a colour determined at the start of the match (20 points).
End of the match
During the last 30 seconds, robots need to go to the rendezvous point (5 points) and hang onto the Generator Switch (25 points). If the switch is level then this alliance wins an extra 15 bonus points.
The alliance with the highest score wins the match.
