I’m terrified to post this question to the official forum because I’m guessing it has already been answered multiple times somewhere but I just can’t find it, and I don’t want to bring down the Wrath of Karthik for not looking it up. So I’m posting it here in hopes somebody can point me to the answer. :o
Imagine a robot has almost scored a cube on a post during autonomous but then the buzzer goes off. Autonomous has ended. The robots are disabled, or whatever it’s called when autonomous has ended. But then suppose one or two seconds after the buzzer goes off, the robot’s grip on the cube loosens and the cube drops down onto the post. Would that cube be counted as part of the autonomous score? or does the buzzer itself separate scored from not scored? I guess the same question applies to whether or not a robot is touching its skyrise or any other scoring object - if the buzzer goes off but the robot slouches away from a scoring object and therefore no longer touches it, do the referees consider the robot as touching or not?
It wouldn’t be unreasonable to ask Karthik this question.
In NZ we follow the common sense interpretation that autonomous scoring should follow the same procedure as end of match scoring, and I’ve seen nothing to suggest that this is inconsistent with how things are done at Worlds, but I don’t remember this ever being specifically addressed.
Would go great in a marathon with Tobor the Great if I do say so myself.:D:D:D:D:D
Finally watched the movie last week and man was it bad. Loved every minute of it though.
And to the OP. Consistently I have seen tournaments around the US follow the same points above about coming to rest. Its possible that the ruling varies depending on the source of the energy as in a falling cube counts but a pretensioned rubber band system that can move around scoring skyrise sections over and over doesn’t count. (actually can someone please do this)
It starts with the fact that this year’s robots will be taller than Karthik. This will make Karthik feel short (LOL), and upset him. As the season progresses, it upsets Karthik more and more, consequently bringing “The Wrath” out of him. The Wrath of Karthik was born.
