2012 Rebound Rumble

Rebound Rumble is a FIRST Robotics Competition game played on a 27 by 54 foot field where alliances of three robots go head to head in order to score the most amount of points possible.

To be a top competitor, Rebound Rumble requires robots to collect foam basketballs and score them in baskets of various heights. Robots also have to balance themselves and their teammates on a bridge at the end of the match, as well as traverse over these bridges or the midfield bump during the match. A new addition to FIRST is the Microsoft Kinect, with which drivers can interact with the robot during the initial autonomous period of each round. Baskets scored during this period count for extra points.
