We are proud to announce that this year's event will be held at the Milwaukee School of Engineering Kern Center, on April 6, 2013. We will be providing additional information on planning your trip in the near future.
Information and directions to the venue can be found on the MSOE Kern Center website.
Two alliances consisting of two randomly paired teams, each provide a ground vehicle and an air vehicle for a match (meaning there will be up to 8 robots total on the field per match). Matches last 2 minutes and 30 seconds with the last 30 seconds being designated as the end game period.
During the match, both ground and air vehicles must obtain and manipulate tennis balls to score on their alliance towers, which concurrently "charges" the center tower. Robots may assist other robots on their alliance in obtaining game pieces during the match and there is no limit to the number of game pieces that can be possessed simultaneously after the start of the match.
The complete game details can be found in the 2013 Game Manual.
