Any Scoring Objects introduced during the Match as Driver Control Loads must be either gently placed on a Robot of your own color touching the Loading Zone or gently entered into the Loading Zone of your own color, by a Student Drive Team Member during the Driver Controlled Period. The intent of this rule is to allow teams to introduce objects into play, but not to impart energy on the Scoring Object which will cause it to end up in a position outside the Loading Zone. It is expected that teams may momentarily break the plane of the field while legally introducing Driver Control Loads. Teams should be very mindful of during this process.
Is it legal for a ball to be fed so that a robot’s intake takes the ball out of my hand, puts it on the floor, then intakes it? The back of the robot is touching the loading zone but the ball touches the ground outside the loading zone.
