Due to COVID-19, there are a few key differences in how this event will be played:
Because of the online format, this event is held as a "Skills-Only" event.
This means that you will only play skills matches: driver and autonomous (no teamwork matches).
Each team will have the chance to play 3 driver skills matches and 3 autonomous matches throughout the event.
The robot with the highest skills score will win the event!
This VEX IQ competition will be held entirely through Zoom. Before the event, I will send you the meeting link and password.
This means that you will need to have:
1. A device capable of joining a Zoom meeting with video;
2. A field and game elements to play matches on; and
3. The ability to compete under the Remote, Live Skills conditions described in the Game Manual: https://content.vexrobotics.com/docs/viqc-rise-above/VIQC-Game-Manual-08172020.pdf
We will be running matches live, and teams will be able to live stream their matches into Zoom. Per the Game Manual, the Head Referee will be a certified referee for this remote event.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to be ready for this event, there is not much you will need to do other than build a robot and practice.
Make sure that you can join the Zoom meeting (if you're not sure if your setup is perfect, I will be on 60 minutes early to help anyone with potential tech issues. After we get you all set up, you can just relax and wait for the event to start)
Here are a few things that would be good to verify you have access to on the day of the event:
NOTE: New this year, you will be required to complete a consent release form for all participants on robotevents.com
However if you would like to watch, just contact me at email@example.com and I can give you the link.
I know that there is a lot of uncertainty about this, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll be sending you email updates as the event comes nearer, so you should have all of the info you need :)
The tournament will last from 10:00 till approximately 2:00 depending on how many teams are registered. Each team will get an email showing when they are going to have their three skills and autonomous skills runs. The robots will be video inspected right before the three skills runs. The agenda will be fluid depending on how many teams sign up.
Please contact me for any refund info.
Everyone will be at their own school so there will be no contact with other teams.
