    I just wanted to know what the status on getting the preliminary rules. We have done our initial planning and would like to start building our new boat as our college semester is coming to a close. We would like to know the details for the challenge stations and any changes to the rules from last year's before we start building in case we need to add anything. Thank you.

    Hi Gene,
    We are currently reviewing the draft of the 2013 RoboBoat preliminary rules. What I can say so far is that parts of the competitions will stay the same (starting/speed gates, navigation challenge) while we are adding 2 new challenge stations (and retiring some). The same sensor system that were used in 2012 should meet the need of the 2013 competition but you may need some new actuators for the new challenge stations.

    The preliminary rules should be release shortly.
