Q151 Can teams bring objects onto the FIELD to get the bot off the HANGAR?

Post by Robot »

Q151: Our team requires support to get our bot down from the traversal rung, but we aren't sure if we can bring objects like that onto the FIELD. Would we be able to take a stepstool or small ladder (around 4ft) onto the FIELD and briefly set it up in or around the HANGAR to get our bot down?
A:
There are no specific rules against bringing items onto the FIELD to assist in removal of the ROBOT provided it does not cause significant delay, per !H301. We cannot comment absolutely on any particular device or procedure, the ultimate decision on whether a method of removing a ROBOT from the HANGAR is safe would be determined by FIELD STAFF at your event. Generally, supporting the weight of a ROBOT while on a ladder or stepstool is not likely to be safe.
