Answered: Tip over robot / can we right it?

Question,

Robot tips over during Teleop mode. Happens at beginning of match and robot has not left the red/blue tile. Can the team pick up the robot and put back on wheels?

Can you answer this please.

Also, what if it tips over during Autonomous. Can we put back on wheels? If so, can we put on wheels at any time or only during Auto mode?

Let’s take a look at the specific rule regarding Robot interaction during the Driver Controlled Period, from the VEX Gateway Game Manual.

Thus teams are allowed to handle their Robots during the Driver Controlled Period if they are repairing a robot. Lifting a robot that has fallen over is not considered a repair, and thus would not be allowed.

Let’s take a look at the specific rule regarding Robot interaction during the Autonomous Period, from the VEX Gateway Game Manual.

Lifting a robot that has fallen over would be considered a reorientation, thus would be legal during the Autonomous Period.
