Rebound Rumble℠ is played by two competing Alliances on a flat 27 x 54
foot field. Each Alliance consists of three robots. They compete to
score as many basketballs into 4 hoops of varying heights as they can
during the 2 minute, 15 second match. The higher the basket, the more
points the Alliance receives.
The match starts with a 15 second Hybrid period where the robots operate either autonomously or controlled using a Microsoft Kinect. Basketballs scored during this period are worth extra points.
The match ends with robots attempting to balance on see-saw-like bridges
located at the middle of the field. The more robots balanced in tandem
on a bridge, the more points are scored.
Logo Motion is played by two competing Alliances on a flat 27 x 54 foot
field. Each Alliance consists of 3 robots. The Alliances compete to hang
as many inflated plastic shapes (triangles, circles, and squares) on
their grids as they can during a 2 minute, 15 second match. The higher the innertubes are hung, the more points their Alliance receives. Extra points can also be earned by placing the tubes in a horizontal row in the order triangle, circle, square, which forms a FIRST logo.
The match ends with robots deploying minibots, small electromechanical assemblies that operate independently of the main robot. These minibots race up a vertical pole to earn bonus points.
