Drive around an oval track, completing as many laps as possible
Move 40-inch diameter balls around the track. Extra points are awarded for moving these balls over a 6'5" overpass at the finish line.
Robots can score extra points in a 15-second Hybrid period
We focused on robot speed, agility, and control as these were required for counterclockwise racing laps around a central barrier while manipulating large 40 in(1 m) diameter "Trackballs" over and under the overpasses.
This was early in our team history and focusing on robot control/accuracy was also important.
