Figure 3 shows the course layout for the Ladder task, and specifications of the ladder.
The Ladder task consists of three sub-tasks: (1) All contact points on or above the first step (1 point), (2) All contact points on or above the fourth step (1 point), and (3) No contact points below the landing (1 point).
Teams may choose the angle B in Figure 3 to be 60 degrees or 75 degrees.
Teams may choose to have zero (0), one (1), or two (2) handrails.
The base of the ladder will be secured directly to the floor.
All robots must use the fall limiter for the Ladder task. At the conclusion of a run, the robot will be lowered to the ground by DARPA officials if needed, that is, the robot does not need to descend the ladder.
If an intervention takes place, the robot will be reset at the start.
