Open Soccer Dimensions Change Schedule

Is the planned schedule of reducing the dimensions of Open robots the same or has it been pushed back a year due to the cancellation of this year’s competition?

Hi @3WC,

Although the final version of the next year’s rules has not been finalized yet, the TC does indeed plan to push the dimension reduction of Open robots one year into the future.

Stay tuned for more in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks!

When the dimensions of the Soccerbots are changing, will also be the dimensions of the arena changed?

Hi Marek,
why that?
Due to the fact that there was no 2020 championship all teams have the chance to build a “future-ready” robot with much more time as usual. So teams may have started building an 18cm robot allready. This was the announcement since November 2019.
I would recommend to stick to that.

Hi @mareksuppa, our team was wondering if there’s been any decision on this? I agree with @stiebel here - the changes to the rules were already released a long time ago, so I don’t think it is necessary to push back the timeframe.

Hope everyone reading this is doing ok! Stay safe!
