Clarification on Definition of Hanging, either Low or High


Michelle Lonsinger (Event Partner)
7 months ago

The definitions of both Low Hanging and High Hanging robots indicate that a robot is hanging if it "is contacting one of the Hanging Bars." It's unclear whether this should be interpreted as 1) contacting only one Hanging Bar, or 2) contacting at least one Hanging Bar. If a robot is touching multiple Hanging Bars and meets all of the other conditions of either a High or Low Hang, should it be scored as a Hanging Robot? Thank you for your clarification!
