There are two good things about this years challenge - one the field has no real obstacles to contend with and one of the ways to score at the end of the game is for a robot to lift it's teammate up. If the robot is a full inch off the ground it's 30points, plus 5 points for each inch after that!
I've clipped out an animated video that describes the game play and how the scoring works. It's pretty intense. In FTC there are size restrictions on the robot as they must start each match fitting within an 18 inch cube. Some of the scoring elements are three to four feet high so means we'll need some form of robotic arm or telescoping platform.
