Debris
Debris

Figure 4 shows the course layout for the Debris task.  The robot begins behind the start line, so that the debris lies directly between the start point and the doorway.  In Figure 4 the start line appears green, with a “tick mark” at the center (directly under the overhead truss).

The Debris task consists of three sub-tasks:  (1) Remove five pieces of debris (1 point), (2) Remove an additional five pieces of debris (1 point), and (3) Travel through the open doorway (1 point). 

For the first and second sub-tasks, the robot removes debris by moving it from its initial position to a position outside the path of the robot.  No part of the cleared debris may touch the floor inside a rectangle formed by the doorway and start line.  This sub-task shall be considered complete when the required number of debris pieces are at rest outside of the lane between the concrete block walls.  Cleared debris may lean against or rest entirely on top of the wall of concrete blocks.  Cleared debris may end up on either side of the wall of concrete blocks or may end up behind the robot (away from the doorway).

For the third sub-task, the robot must travel through the open doorway, which has no threshold.  The robot may remove the truss (metal structure holding the debris), but that is not necessary.  This sub-task shall be considered complete when all parts of the robot (excepting the tether) have crossed a line marked on the ground after the door threshold.

The debris pieces will be constructed of lightweight wood such as Balsa wood.  Five (5) of the debris pieces will have dimensions 2 x 4 x 36 inches.  Five (5) of the debris pieces will have dimensions 4 x 4 x 24 inches.

At the beginning of the run, the debris pieces will be supported in part by the truss, so that none of the debris pieces lies on the ground.  At least one end of all debris pieces will initially be at a height of at least 16 inches. 

If an intervention takes place during sub-task 1, all debris pieces will be reset.  If an intervention takes place during sub-task 2, the second 5 debris pieces will be reset.  If an intervention takes place during sub-task 3, the robot will be returned to the start, and no debris pieces will be reset.
