2011 Logo Motion

History

2011 – Logomotion

FRC_LOGO_MOTION

LOGO MOTION is played by two competing alliances on a flat 27 x 54 foot field. Each alliance consists of three robots. They compete to hang as many inflated plastic shapes (triangles, circles, and squares) on their grids as they can during a 2 minute and 15 second match. The higher the teams hang their game pieces on their scoring grid, the more points their alliance receives. The match begins with one 15-second Autonomous Period in which robots operate independently of driver inputs and must hang Ubertubes to score extra points. For the rest of the match, drivers control robots and try to maximize their alliance score by hanging as many logo pieces as possible. Any logo piece hung on the same peg as an Ubertube receives double points. If teams assemble the logo pieces on their scoring grids to form the FIRST logo (triangle, circle, square, in a horizontal row in that order), the points for the entire row are doubled. The match ends with robots deploying minibots, small electro-mechanical assemblies that are independent of the host robot, onto vertical poles. The minibots race to the top of the pole to trigger a sensor and earn additional bonus points.

JCPenny’s Demonstration

The FBI made the journey to JCPenney’s, one of our sponsors, on Saturday, January 19th to show the public our latest robot creation, “Mater,” our 2011 FIRST robot. “Mater,” uses a telescoping central mast to elevate our robotic arm that articulates its position in order to place inner tubes on pegs of varying heights for this season’s game. We really held the interest of the customers that were in our local JCPenney’s store at Bolger Square in Independence, Mo. We greatly appreciate JCPenney’s helping us make contact with the community of Independence and for being a wonderful and supportive sponsor this season, we hope to maintain our connection with the Independence store and build on our relationship. Check out the pictures below to see some the reactions of our JCPenney’s patrons.
