Starting configuration. At the start of each Match, the Robot must be able to satisfy the following constraints:
  • Only be contacting the Floor and the Field Perimeter.
  • Fit within an 11” x 20” x 15” (279.4mm x 508mm x 381.0mm) volume.
  • The starting configuration of the Robot at the beginning of a Match must be the same as a Robot configuration inspected for compliance, and within the maximum allowed size. Teams using more than one possible Robot configuration at the beginning of Matches must tell the Inspector(s) and have the Robot inspected in its largest configuration(s). A Team may NOT have its Robot inspected in one configuration and then place it in an uninspected configuration at the start of a Match.
