FIRST Robotics 2007

Rack N' Roll

The 2007 is another three vs. three game.  The challenge is to score inner tubes on a center structure in rows.  The center structure, called the “rack,” is round and moves relatively freely upon impact.  The rack consists of 24 “spider legs” that stick out forming eight columns and three rows around the circle.  The robots must take swimming pool inner tubes and score them on these spider legs  The tubes are worth two points each when placed on the rack and for each additional tube of you color in a line vertically or horizontally the score is multiplies to that power.  There is also an autonomous mode at the beginning of match where robots can score tubes by using cameras to see the lights above the rack.  Also, at the end of the match, points can be scored by elevating a partners robot in the home zone.  Here is a reference to the field...
