Starts at Noon US Central (Dallas Time) on Saturday, January 14, 2023.
Everybody likes to see strong teams make great progress in a short time!
So please join in as the Iron Reign FTC Robotics Team shares updated status and asks feedback from DPRG. We last checked in with Iron Reign on 17 Dec 2022. At that time, they demonstrated fresh code (and fresh findings ;-)) and shared their thoughts for next steps. DPRG shared feedback and ideas – and now we’re all excited to see how far the team has progressed.
About the Iron Reign and the First Tech Challenge:
This year’s First Tech Challenge is called Power Play. It is the most fiendish pick-and-place game so far conceived by FTC. In a 12-foot by 12-foot field densely crowded with 27 scoring targets placed at five different heights, four robots compete to pick up plastic cones and place them on targets. What looks initially like a pure speed and accuracy pick-and-place challenge, evolves into a game of strategy, as teams vie for ownership of the scoring targets. It all happens within 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Learn more about the FTC Power Play Competition here Game Animation.
Iron Reign is building on their successful World Competition design started 3 years ago. “We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster!” While the new carbon fiber build is underway, the team is making progress on the essential platform and the code base.
Iron Reign will share their journey so far and seek critical input from the DPRG membership.
