I have forwarded this question on to the MATE ROV Competition judge panel.

I will return an answer to you when I have it.

For the photomosaic task (EXPLORER), any manipulation of the images would be considered manual creating the photomosaic. Pilots may maneuver their vehicle to any location to take the photo, but cannot manipulate the image beyond that.

Companies may not crop photos taken, designate/outline portions of their viewscreen, etc. That would be considered manual creation of the photomosaic.

Companies may maneuver their vehicle/camera to anywhere to take their photo. Companies may then transfer that unaltered screenshot(s) to their computer/device. Those actions are still considered autonomous creation of the photomosaic.

Good luck.

Please note that during the live Competition Prop Q&A and in previous replies to the same question you stated that it's okay if we take a screenshot and define a region of interest in the image. It seems really unfair to change these rules right before the Regional Competitions as they are less than a month away!

Do the same rules apply to Ranger Class?
