If a team has passed the initial inspection, based on G2 and R2, can a robot be subjected to a size check just prior to a match later in the tournament? If so, who is allowed to request this sizing check - a drive team member, coach, referee, etc?
<G2> At the beginning of a Match, each Robot must be smaller than a volume of 18 inches wide by 18 inches long by 18 inches tall. An offending Robot will be removed from the match at the Head Referee’s discretion.
<R2> Every robot will be required to pass a full inspection before being cleared to compete. This inspection will ensure that all robot rules and regulations are met. Initial inspections will take place during team registration/practice time.
a. If significant changes are made to a robot, it must be re-inspected before it will be allowed to compete.
b. All robot configurations must be inspected before being used in competition.
c. Teams may be requested to submit to random spot-inspections by event personnel. Refusal to submit will result in disqualification.
d. Referees or inspectors may decide that a robot is in violation of the rules. In this event, the team in violation will be disqualified and the robot will be barred from the playing field until it passes re-inspection.
