SkillsBC – Robotics Challenge

We will be using the VEX-IQ Robotics Platform and the Current Game: Ringmaster

We will be competing in the following categories:
– Driver Skills Challenge
– Programming Skills Challenge
– Team Work Challenge

Robot Skills Challenge
In this challenge teams will compete in sixty (60) second long matches in an effort to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Driver Skills Matches, which will be entirely driver controlled, and Programing Skills Matches, which will be autonomous (no VEX IQ controller) with limited human interaction. Each match will consist of only one Robot.

Teamwork Challenge
Each Teamwork Challenge Match consists of two teams, operating as an alliance, to score
points. The Teamwork Challenge includes Practice, Qualifying, and Finals Matches. After the Qualifying Matches, teams will be ranked based on performance. The top teams will then participate in the Finals Matches to determine the Teamwork Challenge champions. The number of teams participating in the Finals Matches will be determined based on the number of teams participating.

Each Ring Scored in the Floor Goal is worth 1 point.
Each Ring Scored on a Post is worth 5 points.
Each Ring Scored on a Uniform Post is worth 10 points.
Each Emptied Starting Peg is worth 5 points.
Releasing the Bonus Tray is worth 20 points.
