In Adultsize, each team only has one field player, so do robot need to reach its own half of the field by itself, or let robot handler move robot to get into the field and reach position? What will happen after signal “ready” in adultsize match? How about signal “set”?
My interpretation of the rule is that in AdultSize both robots are field players. So the robot that has kick-off does not need to enter autonomously, but the other one has to - otherwise it will start from the touch line.
“Prepare Direct Free Kick” , “Freeze Direct Free Kick” and “Execute Free Kick”. What should robot do after each signal? Does opponent robot have to move to a position at least 50cm away from the ball by itself or moved by robot handler?
As it says in the rule, after the first signal from the GameController the robots are supposed to wait for the ball to be re-positioned if necessary. After the second signal, the robots prepare their free kick by moving away autonomously at least 50cm, unless they are awarded the free kick. After the "Execute" command, the game continues and the robot executing the free kick can touch the ball, while the others have to wait for this to happen or have to wait at least 10 seconds before the ball is considered to being back in game. I'm not completely sure which state is which in the GameController, I'll check that and get back to you.
But in Game Controller there are only two procedures(regular time and penalty ) for knockout match. So we only have regular time and penalty kick in knockout match?
No, it is as said in the rules. The extra time is optional and depends on the abilities of the robot and how far the ball has been moved within the games. Extended kicks from penalty mark are as regular penalty kicks in the GameController, so it would just be the continuation after the five regular penalty kicks.
How do incapable player or player that suffering a time penalty go out of the field and re-enter the field? By itself or moved by robot handler?
They are taken out by the robot handlers after the referee asked them to do so. They have to re-enter the field autonomously from the touch line within their own half of the field at the height of the penalty mark on the side that the referee announces.
Can we call for a timeout during the play? Or we only can use timeout to extend the stoppage of play?
You can ask for a timeout any time, but it's only effective once a stop of game occurs.
What if a robot handler touches a robot with the allowance of the referee?
The robot gets a 30 second penalty and has to enter back from the side of the field. If another team member except of the robot handler touches the robot within the 30 seconds, the penalty becomes 60 seconds for service.
Please note that a request for pick-up should only be called if the robot is in a dangerous situation is likely leads to immediate severe damage to itself. It is not just a way to inspect the robot or take it to rest for a little while.
When is robot allowed to move? What is the procedure of this challenge?What is the size and color of the slope?
There is no restriction of when the robot is allowed to move. For the procedure, please refer to the rule book. The size and color of the slope is not specified and depends on what the local organizers can provide. The slope will be available for inspection during the setup days for training.
