If a robot is on an alliance robot that is parked on a platform would it be counted as parked
if a robot is on an alliance robot that is parked on a platform would it be counted as parked
Is it fully on the other robot? Or are there some parts of the top robot touching the platform?
There are no special rules on parking on a robot that is already parked. However, RougeScaless brings up a valid point that if a robot was carried, but touching only a robot and the tiles, that would count under parked, as all the criteria are met (Touching platform, not touching ground)
That got me thinkibg. We can make a robot that would extend the central park platform to allows one more robot to toutch the platform while being held up by the extended platform.
How would you extend the platform? I am not sure that can be done.
Platform – One of three (3) raised surfaces made of PVC and polycarbonate, roughly 23.875” (606.4mm) by 21.70” (551.2mm), that can be used for Parking Robots. See Figures 5, 9, and 10.
• Alliance Platforms are denoted by their red or blue structural PVC pieces, and can only be used for Parking by Robots of the same color Alliance as the Platform.
• The Center Platform is denoted by its yellow structural PVC pieces, and can be used for Parking by Robots of either Alliance.
Note: The structures on the sides of the Center Platform are not considered part of the Platform, and cannot be used for Center Parking. See Figure 11 and <SG9>.
Will you elaborate, I’m having trouble understanding.
Nothing but net lifter?
That would not extend the platform. There is no way to extend the platform based on the definition of the platform.
I think @Beepbloop35211 is saying that you can expend your robot to hold another, you yourself on the platform, such that the other robot is just barely touching the platform but being supported by your robot. You’re not actually expanding the platform, but you are expanding the area on which the robot can rest and still be considered ‘parked.’
