US FIRST FRC competition for 2013 season announced

Today at 11AM EST the US FIRST announced the game and rules for this seasons game. The accouncement can be seen on the US FIRST web-site

The annoucement was broadcast on the NASA public feed. The game is termed ultimate ascent. The field will have two pyramids and the robots will be required to use friesbees to score on the buckets at the end of the fields. Double points for scoring during the autonomous period. At the end the robots can climb the pyramids to score more points. The code is sAucersFlyRobotsClimb!

We had 53 teams at the launch event at Georgia Tech. The event was organized by the RoboJackets and sponsored by the Woodroof School of Mechanical Engineering, RIM@GT, GM, National Instruments, United Technologies, College of Computign, Kimberly Clark, Automation Direct, MSC Industrial Supply. More than 800 high school students showed up for the event.

Good luck to everyone for the 2013 season and remember to have fun.

    You got the code wrong. It’s actually ‘sAucersFlyRobotsClimb!’. Note the changed capitalization.
