For SKYSTONE a team consists of up to two driver operators, a coach, a human player and a robot. Each match is played with four randomly selected teams ( two per Alliance ) and each alliance is allowed only one human player.
The game is played on a 12 foot square playing field and the main game element is a stone four by eight and five inches tall. Red and blue depots are taped off in the loading zone corners and red and blue building sites are taped off in the building zone corners. Before each match teams place their robots on the field touching the wall closest to their Alliance station.
The match begins with a 30-second autonomous period, during this period teams can only score using only pre-programmed instructions and sensor inputs. Following the autonomous period is the two-minute driver controlled period, in which the drivers operate the Robots and get points by delivering and placing stones from the loading zone to the building one. Robots will also build Skyscrapers to go as high as possible without toppling over.The last 30 seconds of the driver controlled period is the endgame.
