  • Can a jig wrap around the south wall to hold it's position?

    In the past, our teams have used a jig that was butted up against the south and west walls and left in place but, that doesn't seem to be an option this year.
    We'd rather not disturb the robot by removing the jig from the launch area.
    Can a jig wrap over the top of the south wall to fix it in place, in the launch area?

    No. The south border of the Launch Area is the inside edge of the south wall.

      jmantor Keep in mind once the robot is launched, your robot is allowed to reach over the wall and/or interact with a jig that was left in the launch area. So the top/outside of the wall is fair game if your students can program the robot to use it on its own. Also note the rules about field variability, the size and quality of walls can vary so they have to design around that as well. Even if it doesn’t make the final cut keep encouraging that out of the box thinking!
