2018 FIRST Robotics Challenge

FIRST’s POWER UP is an arcade themed competition between two alliance composing of two robots. Each team controls a robot and performs specific tasks on a field to score points. The game has a retro 8-bit theme and teams are required to place milk crates, or “power cubes”, on large balancing scales to tip the scale and gain ownership. Alliances can also trade power cubes for power ups, giving them a temporary advantage in a match. At the end of the match, robots can climb the tower attached to the center balancing scale using a rung attached to the tower, giving them additional points.
