Rebound Rumble


 

Rebound Rumble℠ is played by two competing Alliances on a flat, 27 x 54 foot field. Each 
Alliance consists of three robots. They compete to score as many basketballs into their hoops 
as they can during a 2 minute and 15 second match. The higher the hoop in which the 
basketball is scored, the more points the Alliance receives. 


The match begins with a 15-second Hybrid Period in which robots operate independently of 
driver inputs. During this Hybrid Period, one robot on each Alliance may be controlled using a 
Microsoft Kinect. Baskets scored during this period are worth extra points. For the remainder of 
the match, drivers control robots and try to maximize their Alliance score by scoring as many 
baskets as possible. The match ends with robots attempting to balance on bridges located at the middle of the field.
