After attending the 2018 FIRST Kickoff, the programming team decided to make diagrams to map the autonomous paths and determine the best path to take.

Alt-Key for Diagrams:

Pc = Power cube
B = Black
G = Green
Pi = Pink
Pu = Purple
O = Orange

Red:

  • Displays position on the alliance station as well as which side of switch and scale are possessed

Black:

  • Switch only - 1 pc
  • Points: Auto run: 5pts
    Ownership (Switch): 2 + 2/sec
    Total: 7 + 2/sec

Green:

  • Scale only - 1 pc
  • Points: Auto run: 5pts
    Ownership (Scale): 2 + 2/sec
    Total: 7 + 2/sec

Pink:

  • Scale to Switch (picking up a pc from platform) - 2 pc
  • Points: Auto run: 5 pts
    Ownership (Scale): 2 + 2/sec
    Ownership (Switch): 2 + 2/sec
    Total: 9 + 4/sec

Purple:

  • Switch to Scale (picking up a pc from platform) - 2 pc
  • Points: Auto run: 5 pts
    Ownership (Switch): 2 + 2/sec
    Ownership (Scale): 2 + 2/sec
    Total: 9 + 4/sec

Orange:

  • Switch to Scale (picking up a pc from pc zone) - 2 pc
  • Points: Auto run: 5 pts
    Ownership (Switch): 2 + 2/sec
    Ownership (Scale): 2 + 2/sec
    Total: 9 + 4/sec

This diagram shows the paths available if the team starts on the right side of the alliance station and has the right side of the switch and the scale.

We look forward to using these diagrams to work with our game strategy team and determine what autonomous programs will be beneficial.
