Ag Bot FAQ's


 

Question:  We are having problems getting the wagon to go up the platform. What are we doing wrong?

 

Answer:  The front lip of the grain platform has to be touching the playing surface no 3M Dual-locks on that edge. You can secure the platform with Dual-Locks at the rear. Otherwise the wagon does not climb up well.

 


 

Question:  How closed is closed on the sheep pen gate?

 

Answer:  If the leading edge is over the area marked on the playing field that is considered closed.

 


 

Question:  Does all of the grain have to actually stay in area marked on the playing field?

 

Answer:  Yes, if any of the grain is outside the marked area the task would only be worth 20 points.

 


 

Question:  If a robot moves an object but did not meet the team's objective, can they have the judges reset the object?

 

Answer:  No. Since the robot caused the change the object would not be reset until the next round.
