  • Tower contact to qualify as Elevated

    Just wanted confirmation on our interpretation of what constitutes Elevated during the last 20 seconds.

    When grasping or hanging from our alliance tower, is there any part of the robot that is NOT allowed to touch the tower? In other words, if we are grasping the top bar on the side of the tower and our bumpers are resting against the vertical members of the towers, as long as all parts of the robot are above the plane of the platform, we are considered Elevated.

    I know this should be clear but there is a lot of chatter implying the robot has to be "free hanging". As I understand it, this only applies to Suspended robots.
