I haven’t been to a lot of FTC competitions, but this one was held in Delft, just about 500m from my apartment. So I went there to take some pictures and shoot some video. I’ve got to admit that the Tetrix system looks quite cool, but it’s pretty expensive.
The competition was okay, though it could have been better. The Dutch competitions have launched only very recently so there weren’t a lot of competing teams. The consequence is that there’s a big gap between some of the teams in terms of design and programming.
I’m also thinking it would be cool to have some more autonomous parts in the game to make it a bit more ‘robotic’. Anyway, here’s a video and some photos. Enjoy!
