2007 Rack n’ Roll

“Rack ‘n’ Roll” is played on a 3 by 8 grid. The 3 by 8 grid is wrapped around a 10-foot tall octagonal tower in the center of the field. Teams could score by scoring placing red or blue innertubes on pegs which protrude from the octagonal tower (referred to as the “rack”). There were black inner tubes (“spoilers”) which could be placed strategically on the rack to block points from being scored. There was a 15 second autonomous period, in which the robots could use cameras to help them score points. At the end of the game, bonuses were assigned to teams who could elevate their robots or other robots on their alliance using a ramp. Here is this year’s game animation:
