2002 Robot Showcase
Each 2 minute match began with the 24’ x 48’ field broken up into 5 zones and set up as follows. Four robots start on the playing field and are paired in alliances of 2. There were 2 robots at diagonally opposite corners, 10 soccer balls in each driver station area, 20 soccer balls centered along each side of the field, and 3 moveable goals weighing approximately 130 lbs each in the center zone. The strategies are endless, but the basic objectives were simple. Robots raced around the playing field trying to gather balls, place them into goals, place the goals in their scoring zone, and returned their robot to their starting zone before the 2 minutes have elapsed.
