Remote Video Pool Depth

Post by mgoe » Thu May 06, 2021 2:33 pm


As our team is preparing for our virtual product demo, we stumbled across a problem; we are worried that we won't have enough space for all props to fit in the 3m deep part of our pool, especially not the drainage pipe and we could not find any info on it in the mission manual, so I'd like to ask: How long does the drainage pipe have to be, and are we allowed to have props at a shallower depth for our video recording? Thank you.

If you are competing in the Telepresence World Championship, there are specific rules about the depth of the pool. And you will need to find a pool that fits all of your mission props. You could leave a mission prop out, but then you would not get points for that.

See the 2021 Telepresence manual for additional rules.

Good luck.
