VEX IQ Cross Over
About the Game
Crossover is played on a 4’x8’ rectangular field configured as seen above. Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60 second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points. Teams also compete in two additional challenges; The Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible under driver control; The Programming Skills Challenge where one robot scores as many points as possible autonomously, without any driver inputs.
The object of the game is to attain the highest score by Scoring Hexballs in their colored Scoring Zone and Goals, and by Parking and Balancing Robots on the Bridge.
This year Charger Robotics hosted the 2016 aio Hawaii VEX IQ Qualifying Tournament held at our very own school. We always find it a great experience to host a tournament that help students who will be future engineers. With everyone participating we could run a smooth tournament. Each member was utilized for their skills in robotics giving students from elementary to middle school a chance to compete. We saw great potential in students who were eager to show off their robot design, introduce themselves, and show their improvements throughout the past year.
