For the 2021-2022 season, Robotique FIRST Québec is organizing in person closing events for its programs, but without any audience, maximizing student attendance while ensuring safe conditions, respecting the standards in force, and offering a… carrying experience. See the section Instructions to Participants below.
Participants should be aware and accept that photos / videos may be taken during this event in the context of the webcasting of the event, training, documentation and promotion of Robotique FIRST Québec and FIRST programs and activities.
This year, the challenge plunges us into the reality of goods distribution.
Two alliances – red and blue – made up of two robots each play in a 12ft x 12ft square field. Robots must cross barriers to access items of freight in warehouses and direct them to shipping hubs. Carousels are also used to bring items into play. Robots must adjust to random instructions on the field. Matches consists of a 30-second autonomous period followed by a two-minute pilot-operated period. The last thirty seconds of the game provide additional scoring opportunities.
Teams hope to stand out for the final rounds by performing and collecting points in the qualifying matches. All teams are also evaluated by a panel of judges and may receive awards.
