stupid design, there is no way the bots are going to reach the top without the "lift"platform at the top deck... The bots are just gonna fall from the sky n slam into the ground one way or another.. measurements are released yet, so my rough estimation is that it will be 3-5meters squared.
As USUAL, no details on the VERY IMPORTANT scoring part of the challenge.(i didnt go for the briefing, so i dont know if they secretly tell those who were there.)
Asses for the auto. part, it's the same as last year.. line track to the finish line starts 1st. Then take the lift to the top, come down to the middle platform, collect balls. Assuming that everything stays the same, there is a tunnel that holds 8balls max(should be the same cheapskate balls used like last year) with a dispenser in the middle of the field. Grab da balls go up the top platform again, somehow release the ball into a imaginery hole somewhere in the imaginary wall and u get some points.(maybe.. JUST maybe, like last year, grabbing collecting the opponent's balls will get u more points) After delivering all the balls, and not forgetting the important task of pushing your opponent over the edge after grabbing taking their balls, the robot has to some how cling on for life on the flimsy well supported cable and slide down to nowhere and pray that the string don't snap
So much for the challenge.. like fun cheong said.. old liaoz.. this year will see many if not all new faces in the competition.. ssc hopes for
40*$200=$80k in revenue 40 teams to participate but hopes are not high... as of this writin, there's only 18 in the teams list, very cold response compared to last year i would say.. That about sums up all i have to say for frs06 for now..
gtg do my projects n prep for my exams... haizz exam timetable out today.. idiot sia kanna 7pm paper again~!.. well.. will be free after the 27th.. TAKA CARE~ all da best for your papers too!.. dun go back for sub papers~!!
