In the 2017-2018 challenge, two alliances – blue and red, both composed of two teams – compete to attain a higher score than the opposing alliance by stacking cones on goals, by scoring
mobile goals in goal zones, by having the highest stacks on goals, and by parking robots on their respective squares at the end of the match.
The match begins with a 15 second autonomous period, after which bonus points are awarded to the alliance that gained the most points during this period. Then, there is a 1 minute and 45 second long driver-controlled period.
Here is the video for the 2017-2018 VEX Robotics Challenge, “In the Zone!”
