The 2011 FRC Game: LOGO MOTION

The 2011 FRC Game: LOGO MOTION

In 2011's game, Logo Motion, teams compete to hang plastic tubes shaped as FIRST's logo on their pegs during a 2 minute and 15 second match. The higher the teams hang their game pieces on their scoring pegs, the more points their alliance receives. The match begins with one 15-second autonomous period in which robots operate independently of driver inputs and must hang Ubertubes to score extra points. For the rest of the match, drivers control robots and try to maximize their score by hanging as many logo pieces as possible. Any logo piece hung on the same peg as an Ubertube receives double points. If teams assemble the logo pieces on their scoring pegs to form the FIRST® logo, the points for the entire row are doubled. The match ends with robots deploying minibots, small electro-mechanical assemblies that are independent of the main robot, onto vertical poles. The mini-bots race to the top of the pole to trigger a sensor and earn additional bonus points.
