This event will take place as a pre-recorded skills event. It will consist of your team video recording its skills matches following a very specific procedure outlined in the Game Manual Skills Appendix.
Specific instructions on how to record and submit your skills matches will come as the event approaches.
This event will not include any remote judging.
Please review the following excerpt from the skills appendix before registering:
- Videos submitted for a Pre-Recorded Skills event must be recorded and submitted within the duration of the event set by the Event Partner. Videos recorded prior to the event’s start date & time will not be acceptable.
- Event Partners will generate a set of unique, randomized alphanumeric code to be sent to each Team at the beginning of the Event.
- All video format rules set forth by apply. Furthermore, a second clock showing the current date / time must be on video during the entire Match.
- Matches should follow a standard procedure, done and shown on one video without any “cuts” or edits, in the following order:
- Robot Inspection is done by the Team, showing on video, the inspection sheet signed and completed. Measurements must be done using a measuring device such as a Robot Sizing Tool or tape measure.
- The Team says the random code that they were given by the Event Partner out loud on video while writing the code visibly on a paper or whiteboard.
- Teams pair the Controller to the Robot.
- The Team shows on video a closeup view of the Starting Position to provide video evidence that the Robot is in a legal starting position.
- The Team says out loud and writes on paper or whiteboard if they are attempting a Programming Skills Match or Driving Skills Match.
- The Team starts a Match when the clock begins.
- After the Match, the Team must move the camera to each of the Goals saying out loud what counts as scored and records onto an official referee scoresheet.
- The scoresheet is then shown clearly on video for a minimum of 10 seconds. While the scoresheet is being recorded, Teams can reset the field for the next Match.
- The Team can then repeat steps 3-8 for their remaining allotment of Matches, i.e. maximum of 3 Programming Skills Matches and 3 Driving Skills Matches, one after another on the same video recording.
- The video recording can now be stopped.
- Teams will need to upload their video on a publicly accessible platform like YouTube, Facebook Video, Google Classroom, SchoolTube, etc and submit the URL to the Event Partner per the instructions on the event site.
Your team will need to record and submit all of its 6 allowed skills matches between 8 AM Central Standard Time on February 15th and 5 PM on February 19th. We will publish results within 48 hours of the deadline.
