Can we use a jig to setup the robot on the field
Are we allowed to use a jig (peices to center the robot on the starting position) to setup the robot in a programming match?
For any question that starts “are we allowed” we need to look at the game manual: here’s a link: https://content.vexrobotics.com/docs/viqc-squared-away/GameManual20190816.pdf
Since the game manual doesn’t say you can’t, then it is perfectly legal. Furthermore, this is clarified by an official Q&A to double check that it is perfectly legal:
Yes, you can. This is just a part of the bot there is nothing wrong with that.
Whether or not the jig is a part of the robot, it is fully legal. Just make sure it isnt in the field when the match starts, and you will be fine.
yes we are. I don’t think the size of the jig matters as well.
