This Year’s Game:

This year’s game crescendo is all about combining STEM with the arts and music. The robot’s goal is to shoot game pieces, called notes, into the speaker. As well as to score notes in the amplifier. During the end game, robots may get on stage and score notes in the trap.

During the first fifteen seconds of the match, the autonomous period, robots are preprogrammed to pick up notes and shoot notes into the speaker or amplifier. During the robot-controlled period, tele-op, robots are able to pick up notes from the floor or the source. They may shoot these notes into the speaker on either end of the field or into the amplifier on either end. In the first 45 seconds of driver control, the alliances may activate their coopetition point by shooting one note into the amp and pressing the blue button. Also located on the amp, the alliances can amplify their speaker notes and cause their point worth to increase. In endgame robots get on stage by climbing onto the stage’s chains as well as can be spotted by their team’s human player throwing a special note onto the microphones on top of the stage. In endgame robots may also get points for parking underneath the stage.
