About the Game
|This introductory video models game basics, showing the playing field, goals and pyramids.
Just four months before the competition, the game for the 2013 FIRST Robotics competition was announced: Ultimate Ascent℠. The game ends with the robots climbing a 3-rung pyramid like a jungle gym made of steel tubes. Before they get there, the robots must shoot discs into goal slots, both autonomously (pre-programmed) and with their human controllers; they must also launch or fend off attacks from competing robots. Here’s FIRST Robotics description of the game parameters.
This 7-part “field tour” video series offers a more comprehensive understanding of the structures, dimensions, materials, and other behind the scenes details.
