Ultimate Ascent is the task ahead of us this year. Each team participates on an alliance of 3 teams, with 2 alliances on the field per match. Each alliance starts by touching the end-game pyramid. The match begins with a fifteen-second Autonomous Period in which robots operate independently of driver inputs. Discs scored during this period are worth additional points. For the remainder of the match, drivers control robots and try to maximize their alliance score by scoring as many goals as possible. For more about the game click here.
