Answered: Robot hanging from annother robot

I was wondering if a robot could low hang from a high hanging robot. Of corse this would have to be planned in the design ahead of time. Also, could you hang from the structure or have some of the robot weight on the structure bars that support the hanging bar?


There are no rules that prevent a team from attempting to Hang by attaching themselves to a partner Robot that is Hanging. However, please carefully look at the definition of Low Hanging.

Regardless or whether or not you’re touching a partner Robot, you still need to be touching the Hanging Bar to be considered Hanging.

There are no rules preventing you from having some of your Robot weight on the Hanging Structure. However, please be very mindful of <SG9> which is quoted below. I’ve bolded some text for emphasis.
