T21 VEX GPS Field Code Strips - VEXU World Championship


VEX GPS Field Code Strips are required for Programming Skills Matches as per Appendix B. T21 notes VEX GPS Field Code Strips on Head-to-Head competition fields as an example of permissible modification.

VEXU Autonomous period is 45 seconds. Programming Skills is 60 seconds. Given Autonomous period is 75% of the Programming Skills duration VEXU teams are likely to utilize more advanced sensing, such as VEX GPS. Can GDC/RECF make a decision if Head-to-Head competition fields at VEXU World Championship will have GPS Field Code Strips present.

Thank you.
