Just a word of caution: that was from last year's rules. Technically we have
to wait 'til Friday's announcement to see if the same rules apply this year.

From the rules:

7. Materials This rule is not just about the robot... This rule controls
everything you bring from the pit area to the competition area including the
robot, all attachments, and all strategic objects when viewed all at once as
a package. All these objects must be made entirely of LEGO elements in
original factory condition (except LEGO string and tubing may be cut to
length), and must conform to the following quantity limits on electrical
parts, no matter what you intend to use or connect or attach to the robot at
any one time:

 

For RCX users:        For NXT users:

RCX controller (1)   NXT controller (1)

motors (3)    motors (3)

touch sensors (2)    touch sensors (2)

light sensors (2)      light sensors (2)

lamp (1)       lamp (1)

rotation sensors (3)          rotation sensors (3 minus the number of NXT
motors present)

3rd touch OR light sensor (1)      ultrasonic sensor (1)

 

 

LEGO wires and converter cables are allowed as needed. Spare/alternate
electrical parts are allowed in the pit area. Objects functioning as remote
controls are not allowed anywhere. There are no restrictions on the quantity
or source of non-electric LEGO pieces. Wind-up/pull-back "motors" are
allowed, and do not count as motors. Pneumatics are allowed. Marker may be
used for owner identification in hidden areas only. Paint, tape, glue, oil,
etc. are not allowed. Stickers are not allowed except LEGO stickers applied
per LEGO instructions.

Hi all;

 

Last year there was an email sent out that had a list of what is allowed for
the NXT and RCX at the table. How many motors, sensors, etc. are allowed for
each machine. I seem to have cleaned out my files and can no longer find
that email - and have not been successful at locating the information on
line - can someone send out that information?? This is our second year of
participation - last year we had one team using the NXT  - this year I will
have at least two teams one of which will be using the RCX. Please
help..thank you.
