At the Becker Spec Check we noticed a concerning trend. 3 of 12 teams present misinterpreted R01, R02, and R03. We wanted to send out a notice to all of you to check your robot size! The exemption for minor protrusions present in R01 and R02 is NOT present in R03. This means that, while you can have items like bolt heads sticking out past your chassis, those bolt heads still need to be within the 28×33 dimensions presented in R03. For further clarification, please see the following responses on the official Q&A:
If you have further questions, or need additional clarification with regards to your design, please e-mail LRI firstname.lastname@example.org, including clear pictures of your robots measurements and the sides containing minor protrusions you wish to discuss.
