Answered: Design Convergene issue within a School

Dear Karthik, may i clarify one issue about have identical robots.
I am mentoring 3 VRC teams in my school. They are all using claw design. At first, we started off with 3 different designs . After few weeks of testing and training together. We have combined all the best aspect of each of our robot and hence resulted in our designs being similar. Thus, my question: whether this so-called “better” design can only be given to one of the teams?

If yes… I feel that this is pretty unfair and why would they want to share ideas in the first place. Please advise…


The game rules do not have any specific restrictions on sharing designs, thus the design could be used by any or all of your teams.
