Charged Up is the game for the 2023 FIRST Robotics Competition. The game is themed around two alliances of three teams each who compete to bring energy to their community. The match starts with a 15 second autonomous period where robots operate on their own but are operated by drivers for the remaining 2 minutes and 15 seconds. Throughout the game, robots work to score points by retrieving cones and cubes from substations, then score them on the grid, and balance themselves on the charge station for end game.
