Clarification of RSC7 for programming skills matches


Braydan Pastucha (Event Partner)

I have a question about statement a.i. in RSC7 "Drivers may reset or adjust the Robot as desired from this position, including pressing buttons on the Robot Brain or activating sensors." Does the word "reset" refer to only the physical robot, or are teams also allowed to reset their program, choose different programs, etc during an official programming skills run?

Thank you,

Yes, pressing buttons on the Robot Brain to activate / reset / switch programs is legal.
