Answered: Legal Actions Between Autonomous and Driver

Is it legal to perform match loading during the 3 second pause between the autonomous and driver portions of a match? The robot is in contact with a starting tile of its color.

By the same logic, can I say that if a robot has not left the starting tile, then a team may interact with the robot as outlined in <SG5> during the pause? What if a robot has left the starting tile and returned to the starting tile?

Are there any other normally legal actions that are illegal during the pause?

The pause between Autonomous and Driver Control Mode is considerably shorter than 3 seconds. Once the Autonomous Period ends, <SG5> is no longer in play.

So to clarify, I can begin match loading at the end of autonomous and continue into driver mode?

This is correct.

Great, Thank you!

You’re welcome!
