Robot Task - Door

The Door task consists of one push door. For completion the robot must open the door and then travel through the open doorway. This task shall be considered complete when all parts of the robot in contact with the ground have crossed a line on the floor on the far side of the door. The door will not have a threshold. The task will take place on a flat surface. The DRC Finals will use a 36 inch doorway. Note that when a 36 inch door frame opens, the true width with jamb and the side of door is approximately 33.5 inches.

The DRC Finals will use a lever-style handle that operates either by rotating downward or by rotating upward.

If a team requests a Reset during this task, the robot will be returned to the Reset area outside the door.
