Answered: Preloading during the autonomus

Hi, My question is about preloading after the autonomus has started. Say in autonomus if a robot leaves the starting tile (like to knock a ball off the barrier) and then returns a fully to the tile, can you while reorienting the robot load a preload. I read <SG2> and <SG4> and found nothing against or for this interaction, but I have seen this during other years. I also have not found another thread on this.I find this critical to know for our team’s plan for autonomus. So I will greatly appreciate if you take the time to read this and answer my question.

Let’s take a look at the definition of a Preload from the VEX Toss Up Game Manual. I’ve bolded some text for emphasis.

Thus, you may only load your Preload into your robot prior to the Match. There is no human loading of Scoring Objects at any point during a Match, including the Autonomous Period.

Thank you for the info we will plan accordingly.

You’re welcome!
