For the 2022-2023 season, Robotique FIRST Québec is organizing in person events ensuring safe conditions and respecting sanitary standards in force. See the section Instructions to Participants below.

This year, the challenge plunges us into the world of Energy.

Two alliances – red and blue – made up of two robots each, play in a 12ft x 12ft field.

The robots must cross the field to collect cones located at the front and rear edges of the field. The cones are then placed on the junctions on the ground. There are 25 junctions of varying sizes placed over the field. A score is assigned to each junction used.

Match play includes a 30-second autonomous period followed by a two-minute driver-controlled period. The last thirty seconds of the game provide additional scoring opportunities.

Teams hope to stand out for the playoff rounds by performing and accumulating points in the qualifying matches. All teams are also evaluated by a panel of judges and can win awards.
