Some ideas we had for the recovery objects:
1) classification of color and shape - four different objects of 2 colours and 2 shapes (ie green and red and triangular prism and rectangular prism). The scoring table has the corresponding shapes and colors. Points for placing any object on any of the tabling targets. More points for placing objects on the correct colour. Full points for placing objects on corrector colour and shape.
2) pipes - pvc pipes about 8” long with “x”s on the ends to stop them from rolling. Four pipes of 2 different colours. on the table, there are corresponding colored rectangles in different direction, (possibly could adjust orientation between rounda). Points for getting the pipes on the table anywhere and more points for placing them in the indicated orientation.
It would be awesome if we could lock down the objects for this in the next couple weeks. Designing, manufacturing, and testing a manipulator is hard to do in a couple weeks over the summer. Hopefully if at least the object shape is finalized earlier more teams will attempt the object manipulation task!
