2014 - Aerial Assist
In the Aerial Assist 2014 FIRST Robotics Competition game, the alliances won via getting the scoring elements (2'-diameter exercise balls) into the scoring areas located on the far end of the field. The game started with each robot in either the White Zone (center field) or the goalie zones. They could be preloaded with 1 game ball prior to the start. The match began with a 10-second autonomous period, where robots used the pre-programmed instructions to score points. Said points are worth 5 more during the Autonomous period, and one goal will be lit up ("hot") during each half. That goal is worth 5 additional points, for a maximum total of a 10-point bonus.
