This year's game:
This year the focus will be a simple yet complex task: landing. SpaceX has made a historic leap forward this past year with being able to land their reusable Falcon 9 rocket boosters on a predetermined landing zone. This was an incredible engineering feat, and we are going to try to tackle it with this year’s game.
In front of you are four landing pads. The first is fixed and stationary, however the next three are moving. You will need to successfully land on multiple pads in order to win this year’s challenge. The further away the pad, the faster it moves. Pads will move in a predictable manner where your robot will be able to calculate the appropriate trajectory to land. To aid in the landing process, teams can place their own landing markers on the pads..
