Power Expander inspections at the World Championship

Hello,

We have heard rumors of teams electrically modifying their power expanders so as to gain a competitive advantage. Modifications of this sort are illegal as per R15a:

Is it possible for testing to be put in place at the World Championship so as to potentially catch any teams who have modified their power expander and/or cortex? The potential to be caught and disqualified for this would greatly discourage teams from breaking these rules, as has already been achieved through the introduction of motor inspections.

Thanks,
Lucas

Telemascope,
I cannot address specific rules, nor can I address specific methods of rule enforcement, but I can verify that the most skilled and knowledgeable inspection staff ever assembled is prepared to scrutinize robots for safety and adherence to the rules. I would strongly advise teams against performing any action to “modify their power expander and/or cortex” as your question states.

Best,
Brad
