Changes Since Last Year

CSTAG has reviewed the results of the post-event survey from 2018. Below are some of the changes we are making this year thanks to your feedback!

  • There are now five challenges, four during the day and one overnight.

  • The night task will be moved to an area with less grass, and the driving route will be more straightforward.

  • Task scoring has been designed to evaluate multiple capabilities of the rover at once, without being completely dependent on a single ability.

  • Some tasks now require a drill or trailer hitch, but most designs from 2018 should be largely reusable.

  • Rules and penalties related to interventions have been relaxed. This is intended to maximize rover operation time and avoid handicapping smaller teams. Please review the new intervention rules and how they apply within each task.

  • This year we will attempt to provide the following additional services to teams at CIRC Central:

    • A tea/coffee supply
    • Basic tools and workshop resources
