Using controller during Programming Skills Challenge


Instead of pushing a button on the robot brain or touch LED sensor, a team member would like to press a button on the controller to cycle to the next portion of the programming skills run. We’ve combed through the RSC rules, and cannot find anything that disallows use of a controller during the Programming Challenge. We have found this, in <RSC6>:

Drivers must start a Robot’s Programming Skills Match routine by pressing a button on the Robot Brain or manually activating a sensor.

Could the VIQC controller count as a sensor?

Answered by Game Design Committee

No, this is not legal.
