from the robot game rules that can be found on

8 – BASE

Base is an imaginary box formed by vertical walls that rise from the perimeter of the Base area, including the

inside surface of the border walls, and by an invisible ceiling 16”

(406mm) high.

This means Base is not just an area on the mat – it’s a VOLUME.

Usually there is a gap between the mat and a side border wall… Base

includes this gap.

Anything even barely in Base counts as being in Base unless the robot

moves it completely out.

Anything in the team’s possession is understood to count as being in

Base, and is okay to store or handle.
