Sounds great. Okay. Thank you everybody. Thank you. Welcome. sir. Okay. Um next up, we're going
to just summarize the rules and then get get on with the uh unknown unveil I'm going to be start test which will be unveiled in a minute. Um we'll be done. and then the teams will be given 20 minutes to um to implement it and then there will be an impound after impounded the ball locations for round one will be announced. and then we'll run the first rounds and then after the first round, um teams will not be allowed to modify the robot or program because we'll go right into the second round where we will unveil the bottle locations run the second round and then finally, the winners will be decided by the average results from the two rounds.
So, both rounds are important Alright. judging uh the judge will measure the time it takes for each robot to push two bottles off the table. Uh the maximum time is 2 minutes. Uh the unknown task must be used to initiate the robot If a robot commits suicide by falling off the table, survival time and number of bottles pushed will be recorded. Uh the next one is very important. The
robot must remain on the table for at least 3 seconds after the last bottle is pushed off or it will be penalized. So, a judge is when you make your recordings, please make sure that you capture everything including at least 3 seconds after the last bottle is pushed The judges will record the time, the robot uh either pushes off all the bottles or stays on the table. and then judges will um video both rounds and then submit them to the Rebel Fest office. Okay. So that's um summary of
the rules and the judges uh rolls and now it is time for the unknown. Start unveiled and here it is. Okay. Um for the unknown start. the front of the
robot must face one of the table edges approximately ten centimeters which is a bottles width away The robot must be able to start anywhere along one of the straight edges. It could be anywhere, not the corners but it could be the long edge. The short edge, pretty much anywhere and that exact location will not be unveiled until after impound. So, basically that this has to be able to start ten centimeters away from from an edge and then once started, the robot must turn right clockwise approximately a full rotation and then wait 2 seconds before going I have a little bit of an animation to illustrate. We'll do the three two, Go. It's going to turn all the way around to the right. Wait, 2
seconds. and then it can go Okay, one more time. 321. Spin. Wait. 2. seconds. Then the robot can go. Alright. so
that is the unknown. Um I'll give a minute for any questions or answers questions. If there are any questions, uh put them in the chat. Uh teams do not start working until we start the clock, right? So, at this point, we're doing, I have a question. Sure. Emma, I have a question. Uh what is the allowance of the uh turning like uh how many more or how many we'll give it about um fifteen 15° plus or minus fifteen one five, right? Yeah.
Okay. Uh the place that we put the robot and uh any side of the table. Yes. Yes and that will be unveiled afterwards. So you just have to be able to turn around 300. 360°. Yes. And
uh the space between the edge of the table and grab a distance. centimeters. Yes. Okay. I have a question. Excuse me, sir. Excuse me, sir. Yeah. Yeah. Go ahead. Um can you show up movement of the board in the PPD again. Uh the movement of
which of the Yeah. Okay. What? Here, let's see. this place. Which one? Go on the robots.
It's pretty simple. It's just a full turn and wait. 2 seconds. 321. Go on the block of cream. You'll say 321. go right Elmer.
Yeah. Yeah. 321 is the the the direction from the um from from me. Uh sorry Emma. Uh I have one more question. um since
that uh the robot is facing outward so it must turn 180 180° more, right? Oh no, no, no, sorry. Uh uh. don't want to wait 2 seconds. yeah, that's it. Yeah. yeah. it's a full rotation. Okay. Right. Yeah. Thank you. Velasco. Question, please. He
should be between 300. Uh 360° four times. uh one time. Okay. Yes. This one time. I've also uh pasted a link to the unknown it in the chat in case anyone wants to uh look at it. Alright. are there any other questions or is it uh is it clear? I have a question please. Yeah.
go ahead. Yeah. Um after uh he waits 2 minutes, a two uh seconds or uh he completes some he searched for the bottles. Yes. Right. The robot after 2 seconds, you can do whatever I want. You can keep turning. You can keep going straight. You
can back up, Search for the bottles. Yes. Okay. Thank you. Alright, should I start the 20 minute timer? Yeah. Yeah. Um we'll start the 20 minute timer. Um if teams have questions, uh just go ahead and use the chat or or um unmute. Alright, the timer has started.
You may begin programming right? And our local judges, please make sure that teams are understand the uh the unknown. If you have any questions, just let us know. Good luck to all of you. Yeah. Can we start the unknown? uh mission now? Yes, you may begin to go ahead and start working Teams. go ahead. Shannon, you're you're doing the count up. I am. I can't. I'm counting up to 20 minutes.
Sorry. I no, no, no, no problem. Just uh I had the uh I had the uh and so we're counting up to 20 minutes at the end of 20 minutes, we will stop the timer. The teams will need to stop their their programming at the end of 20 minutes. So, if you can see the
timer, it is counting up to 20 minutes. If you have any questions, please type them chat. luck to all the teams. and so if you have a question and you still want to use the right hand function, that's okay too.
Alright, teams. Um we may ask you to turn on your audio at certain points So, just be on the lookout for that. I can't change anything. Exactly. It's got a it's got a
try again. Try it one more time. That's it.
They're ourselves. I'm sorry. Uh we have questions. that doing the work periods We would like you to our new They can unmute or they can type it in the chat. It's a meal for all the things that's in case.
You won't Sounds like a little Put your hands up. Hang on. Hang on. Hang on. If you have a question, just type it in the chat please. I'm going to, I'm going to for you. We're searching it's on. It's on. So, we're they can't
see you. Let's go. Hey. Hey. Hey. go. I think 12 minutes. This is coming up. hand up. Why are you seeking?
because our audio is live. Okay. It's live. don't speak. have no I'm It's alright. I see a hand raised from Royal Robot. Is
there a question if there is, put it in the chat. 10 minutes remaining. 10. minutes 10 minutes and Stop.
don't like it. don't see it. what that means. I don't know. the virus. Alright. Hello, everyone. We
are um fracturing the round. So, please make sure you're following all the rules. Vicksburg, the teams are following all the rules. right? And just as a reminder that um no adult help is uh Um as far as local judges, uh your role is to make sure they understand what the requirements are but that's Hey, I'm Stop. Stop. Stop. Stop.
5 minutes. A little less than 5. Minutes left. Are they? I'm so good at that. Them.
Hold on. no, no. Let's go. Okay. I love you.
III. Okay, there's 2. Minutes left. Can you please uh finish up what you're doing? Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay.
more. 1 Minute. Okay. At this point, we need to have robots. Come on. There you go. Please
bring your robot to the table and local judges a quick verification for and wait. and most of our own. that I just please verify. I'll give you a
minute to verify, size, and weight and then, we'll go on with the next part. So, tell me we have to do it and now it's just We will start now. uh defying the weight. Yes. Okay. Yeah. Just verify specifications. Um
for any changes during the round that everything that should be fine. Chris and Shannon has helped me uh See when teams are ready and we can um move on. Yes. Yeah. So, at this point, uh yeah. uh everyone that stopped working and Arabs is almost looks like they're robots. Robots. Can you put your robot
on the table? Yeah. Yeah. teams when everything's done, just um leave And can you put each robot on its own table so we can see both tables? Since you have two tables in the same shot, can you put one robot on one table and one second robot on the second table? Yes. Thank you. that tells us that that indicates to us that you're ready to start. So, put the robots once it's verified, put the on the the the BottleSumo field So, gamma bots, if you're a robot is good. put the robot on
the table. The team, the the field, and then you can move that scale Once it's verified, you can move that out of the way and put the robot right on the table. How are we looking? Are you good? Okay. Yes. Go ahead and put the rhubarb right on the table if it's all set. you can
move the scale out of the way out of the camera. We're going to put it on the actual BottleSumo game table. It's good. We're awaiting it. The measurements on the table next to the bottle. on the table, near the bottles and then move that little blue table out of the way. Yeah, there you go. And
then make sure the camera can we can see the camera. You want to visit the buttons If you've already measured them, we you signed off on the checklist that you measure them. You don't need to measure them again. Just a robot in case they made any changes. So, if the robot is ready, just set it there on the table. and you can put the scale away.
I see the measuring still going on. Thank you for verification. Once the robot is verified, um we can't see anything as far as numbers on the scale. So, you need to verify judges that it's right. Once the judge has
verified that the the number is correct. Put the robot right on the table near the bottles. We we cannot verify through this format. So the judge must verify Once the judge has verified the robot put the robot on the table, So, uh everyone should take a picture for the measures. No,
no, that's not necessary. No, it's on the. if you if the judge has checked it on the checklist that the robot meets specifications, that's what we need. We don't need, we don't
need anything now. So, it looks like uh Medina you don't need to tell us just if the judge has verified the number just place the robot on the table. Okay, it looks like uh looks like they're all set right? Yeah. Almost. Okay. Okay. Well, I'll give a minute to um do that but in the meantime, I'm just going to cover the process and we went over this during the coaches meeting but just to review the way it's going to work from this point on, I will first announce the exact location of the robot and then give teams a chance to position and then to start the robots basically uh start their program to the point where they just have to do one thing and it'll move Once the uh robots are ready, we will announce the bottle locations. and ask all the sites to set the bottles. Then, the sites just need to verify they're ready which means that the um the setups are ready. The bottles team and
judges are ready and once they are all ready, uh I will just give one more a verification and then um make sure the timer is ready all the sites to start their videos and then we'll do the 321 go at that point, make sure to stay away from the table and um Make sure the video captures the whole round. right. Including the three second survival time and if there's any doubt, just keep the video running a little bit longer.
Okay. So, at this point, I think we're ready to um unveil the following locations. So, here they are. Alright, step one. Let's place the robot that
goes on the northeast. corner of the um So, northeast corner, ten centimeters away from the north edge. Ten centimeters away from the East edge. Uh you who is in the wrong corner It needs to go in the opposite corner. further away but to the right of the camera, not the left. So, move to the uh nope. wrong direction. So, move it
along the length of the table to the back corner all the way to the other side where the tripod is It's not where the laptop is but where that? nope, the tripod was fine. but the robot needs to be moved to the other corner. opposite corner from where it is right now. Okay. Yeah.
facing east. Alright, looks like most of the teams are getting it right. Royal Robo looks like they're putting it in the incorrect corner as well. Yeah. uh I want Oscar uh team has made it correct from now. Uh I can't. Yeah, it's Royal Robo also MacArthur. Um it needs to be
the opposite opposite corner for Royal Robo. back to the other side. to the back. No other corner. Uh so that's
wrong. I'm sorry. I'm talking to Royal Robo. Yes, I'm talking about the it. Royal Ro Royal Robo I have your attention, Royal? Robo, You're in the wrong corner. Opposite corner. Opposite corner, please. I want
to ask if there are deer programmers have made it uh correct. Yes, you're you're correct. Royal Robo is still measuring the incorrect corner. Um may I ask the heroes is on the correct Yes, it's correct. We we said that we're going to spotlight the the teams that need to move Yeah. Yeah. If you're not
spotlighting, then you are correct. CDS. Jr five SO one is needs to go to the opposite corner as well. I think everyone else looks Looks good. Robo. you need to
go to the opposite corner. From the camera's point of view. you're on the bottom left. You need to be the top right from the camera's point of view. I don't know if they can hear us.
Okay. let's let's remove CD. Okay, we're going to ask Royal Robo one more time. Can you hear us? Royal. You need to move your robot to the opposite corner. It's not facing the right direction. It is the
corner It needs to be rotated as well. Yes. uh other teams just please uh yeah. he's like yeah, Can you turn on your here? We're going to ask you to unmute Can you unmute Your robot is not in the correct position.
okay? The robot is needs to move. It needs to look like this one. See, this one's correct. So, can you make yours look like the one on the other spotlight? Can they hear us? Can you hear us? Can you hear us? Real rubble? Can you hear us? Okay. Royal Rumble Your robot is in the wrong location. and
it's the wrong location. The robot needs to move to the opposite corner from where it's sitting right now and it needs to face the short end of the nope. Now, go back. go back to where that bottle. you just place that bottle, move the robot back. for the king. guys. that. A robot now needs to move to the corner nearest the nope. to
the back corner where that bottle is sitting there. Yes. yes. Yes. And turn the robot so it faces the short end of the table. That's good. No, the other way. and face the short ends. face
turn the robot 90° face the short end. Yes. There you go. Now, measure ten centimeters from the edge and 10¢ You got it. Okay. I I think I got it. Okay, I'm going to um go on to this. Thank you so much. Okay.
Um now, everyone's got the robots in the right place. Time to place the bottles. I think some of you have already guessed that they'll be on the opposite side of the table bottle. One is in the northwest
corner. ten centimeters from each side is in the southwest corner. Ten centimeters from the west side and flush with the Okay. So, at this point, um I like all the sites to complete the set up. Uh make sure that and when the teams are ready and everyone's ready, use your right hand to indicate you are ready to go and then we'll start the round So, I have I shall we let him do it wrong.
What's the question? shall we? Um during the run. Yeah. Yeah. Teams can unmute but I don't do it just yet. We need to be able to talk to the teams that might still have um the adjustment. So, we'll do the unmute um just before we start the runs.
It's time to review. This is this one is for the local church or for the team. for both. Shoot me a comment.
How's everything look? I'm. Can you turn off the screen for a sec? Then we can see. Let's remove the spotlights. It looks like everyone is got their bottles appropriately placed. Okay? So, you can feel your bottle is where it needs to be. If you're
ready to go, use the raise hand function okay? Um I'm a little unsure of uh let me Okay. now, that's okay. That's that's a camera perspective uh issue. Okay. Okay. But everything looks good. We can proceed. Okay, let's um we'll be looking for all the race hands. Uh Emma, sorry. uh for for the previous team that you just saw the robot should be facing out to it, right? He said they said something that doesn't look great about this one. Is it inwards instead
of out? He's asking It should be facing out. Is that correct? Yeah. Yeah. 4192. the front of the robot should be facing the edge of the table. Is that the edge of the bed facing the East Edge, right? Yeah.
Let's try it again. Thank you for that. Thank you for that. That was very helpful. Yes. so much. Claire, can you move out of the way of the camera so we can see the table? And can you turn it slightly to the left so we can see both bottles. Right now, we can only see the one Bring your camera just slightly towards the table so we can see both bottles. Can
you move the the laptop or the It's yes. Okay. That helps. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Um I don't see uh some of the race hands if you I think Yeah. if you
can't find the right hand that's just in front of the camera with your thumbs up. Okay. Hey, Royals. Good Who's that
Kingston butt. Looks good. Uh wait, wait, wait one second. Okay. we do. That's how you I was like. you were II. See a few uh
hands. Yeah. Uh 4183 ask for a moment to reset. Robo is ready. Kingston butt looks ready. Lego. Just see just looks funny. Okay. Yeah. teams, if
you're ready, make sure that um you're standing by your robot ready to press the button. I know. Are you ready to start the robot? Get ready to start. while we're waiting. 44183. We have not started yet. Royal
Rumble, Royal Robo, stop your robot. He's uh uh please. We don't know what the world is not a uh can you give us a minute? Yeah, we'll give you a minute to start. also, are we required to push a record on our end or you're just, you're recording. No, no, no. You recorded on a separate device but um don't worry about the do Yeah, the zooms automatically being recorded. We just need a
close up of your local table up with your with your phone or camera. I'm on my way to call us. text me, So, we're just waiting for the the one team that's a better Taco Bell. I think so. Yes. Yeah. How's the food?
I think I'm a alright. You going to be fun. we can we change the mind and reload the the code again. Yeah. At this point, I would say um why don't you do that separately from the rest? Because he's he doesn't want a Okay. Yeah, we can, you can do
your run later. We'll we're going to run the rest of it right now. Is that okay? I think everyone else is ready. Okay. So, one more check sites are ready. time. We're ready. Timer is ready. The microphones

Why don't we have everyone? We'll do run number two. We'll place the robots and then we can go back and rerun. run one for 4183. Well, that help you
Okay. Um II. Think at this point, they they've got the ball set up. So, why don't we just give him a minute to okay, get it and it's fine with me.
That's yeah I think it's uh It's still might be faster this way. It's working. Uh we're really the robot has worked. Okay. Very good. Okay. It's the

for your patience. Yes. Yes. Thank you. doesn't work. Hi. Sorry to interrupt um our download cord for a robot isn't working. So,
um we were wondering if we could Get another round one. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So, what do you need? for us to be for us to be timed with that other um with 4183, we would like to be recorded for round one again because our download cord wasn't working to program the robot. We didn't know until now. is it working
now? I'm getting, we're getting another cord. Okay, so we'll go ahead and proceed with run to Elmer. Here we go. to proceed with one, two, and then we'll go back and do another run one for the team. So yeah, Okay.
Thank you. Yes. Open this up. is something's wrong with to share. Hold on.
Okay. Um this is round two. robot will be facing the north side. Ten meters in front of the robots.
Ten meters away from the north side, right side of the robot is seventy meters or seven centimeters from the robots. Ten centimeters from the north side, right side of the robot is seventy centimeters from the east side. Make sure you measure from the east side to the middle. not
from the west side. Ms. 006. It looked like you were measuring from the west measure from the east Bangle Tigers. It looks like you're measuring from the wrong side. Measure from the east to
the middle, not from the west, Measure from the east side, The one where the students are standing right now. Bengal Tiger and uh measure from the east. not from the west. It looks like you're measured from the it should be more toward the east side. So, measures seventy centimeters from the east. Okay? side of the table, not the west side. Ten
centimeters from the back. Wait, wait. the point. The point is from right side, The point is right side the left side. correct from the east side. Yes. From the right side away from the camera. If you're facing the It's from the the right side. not the left. the
east of the The robots should be more off center to the to the right. Not to the left. There you go. Yes. my boy. I can't see your robot on the table. I see a beautiful
person but not a robot. Okay. Does it look like uh we're ready to move on or I think it looks Owen and Claire. It's hard to tell where your robot is based on the angle. Make sure that you're measuring from the east side of the table and at the west Oh, the. I wasn't even on the table. Yeah. ten centimeters
from the from the south or the north and seventy from the east and it faces the edge of the table. Correct The long edge. Okay. Thank you. Let me, let me show you one more time. Yeah. Shannon was saying east side.
So, this is the camera view. from the view of the camera on. Um seventy centimeters from the right or east side. and then the front of the robot faces the north side. and here in the bottle locations. bottle of wine. Southwest corner. ten
centimeters from each side. Two um Southeast corner, ten centimeters from either side. So, the bottle should look symmetrical. Alright. So, same thing here. Um once the site has the the robot set, the the um program is selected and ready to run and the bottles are placed to give us the um raised hand one of the stuffs here. I think uh everyone's got it and then I've put it. put it in the chat
just in case. Um MacArthur. Looks like it's for round one.
Yeah. Yeah. The MacArthur needs to move the bottles and it looks like the robot's offset to the wrong corner too. Philip, can you um here pull that up again. Elmer fill the bottles should be in the opposite Elmer's going to bring it up again. The robot needs to be measured from the side of the table and labeled east Looks like yours is more offset to the left than the right and then each bottle uh the corners Let's pull you up here. So, double check your robot location. McArthur. It looks
like you measured from the the the left side of the table and not the right side that the robot should be closer to where you're standing, right off center. So, measure from that corner seventy centimeters from that corner. Do you have a measuring tape? Yes. Okay, we just want to make sure that you're in the correct location. So, seventy from that
edge and then ten centimeters from the long edge facing the sofa there. Oh, I guess it was okay. It just looked really off center to me the wrong direction. It's kind of a um I
just, I just wanted to verify. That's okay. I'm sorry. Sorry to ask you that. I just want to make sure. Well, it's okay. It's okay if the measurements right there. Yeah. Okay. Alright. How's everyone else
looking? I think we are. Looking good. Yeah. If you're ready, you please use the right hand or or um give us an indication on the camera. How
about our um And are they ready? I want in Claire. Good. Okay. Good. I'm not seeing them anymore. Where did they go? Yeah. Yeah.
