General Info

Join us for the VEX Robotics Competition Live Remote Tournament brought to you by the CanSTEAM Foundation! This event will be open to 24 teams from all over the world to participate.

**Please read the entire event posting prior to registering for this Live Remote Tournament.**

Participating in a Live Remote Tournament requires teams to have their own VRC field and Tipping Point Game Element.  If an organization (school) has multiple registered VRC teams for this event, you will need at 2 fields and 2 (4 preferred) computers with webcam (720p or above) to participate the event from the same location.

  • VRC Teams should practice using the Live Remote Tournament practice system prior to the event to ensure they have the necessary equipment and resources.  Please see these Live Remote Tournament Practice Instructions for more details.
  • VRC Teams need to carefully read the VRC Game Manual on Live Remote Tournaments to ensure the field is correctly set up and teams understand the rule/scoring differences compared to an in-person tournament.
  • Teams will need to compete their technical set up and test all of their equipment prior to the event. 

In addition to a full field and game elements, each registered team will need:

  • a dedicated computer with a Google Chrome Broswer
  • an external USB camera (720p or higher resolution)
  • reliable/high speed internet
  • their VRC robot with updated firmware (latest firmware at the competition date)
  • Micro USB to USB cable to connect robot controller to computer
    • Teams may wish to use a long (10-12 foot) cord for more flexibility in computer and camera placement.
  • An additional monitor or TV screen/projector for viewing alliance partner and opponent fields as well as Event Chat from the driver station.

***Please carefully review these requirements prior to registering.***

Mandatory Release Form

All participants must have a Participant Release Form on file in their RobotEvents.com account. It is the responsibility of the Coach/Mentor to make sure this occurs prior to the event. 

Per the Game Manual, the Head Referee will be a certified VRC Tipping Point referee for this event.
