Teams have begun receiving the mats and mission models for this years challenge, Smart Move! Over on Techbrick, they have posted some resources that includes this years mat layout and CAD images of the mission models, as well as planning worksheets, and team info sheets. Go check them out!
Also, artificialintelligence over on NXTasy posted some pictures of a real table with the missions sitting on them... looks good!
More information on Smart Move on the FIRST website - interesting to see that they have already released next year's (2010) challenge, Biomedical!
The kickoff with the release of the challenge mission rules is September 3! Can't wait! Meanwhile, debate what you think the missions might be on the comments or in the forums.
Looking to a fun year, good luck!
