Prasanna,

Welcome to FIRST LEGO League. I hope you and your team have a FUN season!

Since I have not seen any other responses to your question, I thought I would offer my interpretation of the rules (provided below):

Rationale:
http://www.firstlegoleague.org/sites/default/files/Challenge/FLL_WORLD_CLASS/FLL-WORLD-CLASS-Challenge-FINAL-v2.pdf

16 - Cargo - Cargo is any strategic object or mission model the robot has with it for transport or release. Objects in accidental contact, objects fully released, and objects “all done being pushed” are not cargo.

27 - In - An object is “in,” “into,” or has “reached” an area if any bit of that object crosses the area’s perimeter.
— Exception: A cluster of small objects is considered one object.

44 - Cargo Penalty - Any time you touch the robot, no matter where it is, if it has cargo OUTSIDE BASE it didn’t have during the most recent start, the referee takes that cargo out of play.

43 - Robot Penalty - These occur whenever you touch an autonomous robot which is OUTSIDE BASE. The penalty’s value is given in the Missions, below.

51 - The Scoring Process

Penalties
If a Robot, Sprawl, or Junk penalty earned (as described in the Rules), the referee keeps account by obvious placement of these penalty markers in some manner as to stay out of the way of you and your robot. Loss of cargo is its own penalty.
Robot, Sprawl, or Junk Penalty: -10 EACH
(Max Penalties Of These Types = -80)
Cargo Penalty: Loss Of Cargo

Hello,

I am a rookie coach and had a question on bringing the robot to the base manually - I checked the guide and could not find any information related to this.

If the robot has picked up a knowledge loop or the basket and while on the way to the base, if it gets obstructed, can the Robot be picked up along with the cargo? I see in the guide that loss of cargo is its own penalty ( along with the 10 points for handling the robot), but in this case, the cargo is still attached to the robot or in full control of the robot.

Any assistance or pointers to the documentation would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Prasanna
