In 2022, Hawktimus Prime won the Excellence In Engineering Award at the FNC ECU District Event and was the overall ECU Winner!
In RAPID REACT two competing alliances were invited to process cargo for transportation. Each alliance was assigned a cargo color (red or blue) to process by retrieving their cargo and scoring it into the hub. Human players assisted the cargo retrieval and scoring efforts from within their terminals. In the final moments of each match, alliance robots raced to engage with their hangar to prepare for transport! Each match began with a 15-second autonomous period, during which robots operate only on pre-programmed instructions to score points by taxiing from their tarmac and scoring their cargo into the hub. In the final 2 minutes and 15 seconds of the match, drivers took control of the robots and scored points by continuing to retrieve and score their cargo into the hub and could engage with their hangar. The alliance with the highest score at the end of the match won!
