Challenge: Ultimate Ascent

ultimascent

Ultimate Ascent is played with two alliances: one red and one blue. The winning alliance is determined by the team with the most points at the conclusion of the match. Ultimate Ascent matches are two minutes and fifteen seconds long. The first fifteen seconds are called the autonomous period. During this period the robots follow a set of pre-programmed instructions. Following this period the teams take control for the teleoperated period. Drivers control their robots, attempting to score discs into the goals at the opposite end of the playing field. The robots also can climb their alliance’s pyramid at the end of the match to score additional points. In the final thirty seconds the human players can throw their six colored discs into play over the alliance wall. Ultimate Ascent is played on a 27′ x 54′ field.
