15 YARD DASH

In the 15 Yard Dash, teams compete to build the fastest robot for the FIRST Infinite Recharge event. All you need to compete is a video camera and a fast robot. Timing begins once the robot moves and ends when it passes the 15-yard mark. The team with the fastest robot will occupy the top spot on our leaderboard and be labeled as a Robolympian.

  1. Place a piece of tape or another marker at 0 yards, 5 yards, 10 yards, and 15 yards (the bottom of each strip should represent the distance).
  2. The front of the robot’s bumper must start at the back of the 0 yard marker.
  3. Timing starts when the robot begins moving and ends when the front of the robot crosses the 15 yard marker.
