Congratulations to all the VEX Robotics teams that participated in the World Championship! After seeing all of the creative, well-engineered solutions, it’s clear how much hard work you all put in this season. Job well done!
The ROBOTC team is thrilled to have been part of the event, and even more thrilled to be part of your actual solutions this year. It was great to meet so many of you, hear what you had to say about ROBOTC, and troubleshoot with you in person. We listen to your feedback – please continue to give it to us in the off season.
What is the VEX Robotics World Championship?
The VEX Robotics World Championship is a gathering of top robotics teams from around the world to celebrate their accomplishments and compete with/against the best of the best. The 2011 VEX Robotics World Championship will include top teams from over 200 VEX Robotics Competition tournaments happening in cities around the world from May 2010 to March 2011.
The Game – VEX Round Up
VEX Round Up is played on a 12’x12’ square field. Two alliances – one “red” and one “blue” – composed of two teams each, compete in matches consisting of a twenty-second autonomous period followed by two minutes of driver-controlled play.
The object of the game is to attain a higher score than your opponent alliance by scoring tubes upon goalposts, owning goalposts and by low hanging or high hanging from the ladder. A bonus is awarded to the alliance that has the most total points at the end of the Autonomous Period.
