Understanding the VRC Virtual Skills Field

Field Coordinates

In VRC Virtual Skills, Moby, the Hero Bot for this year, is equipped with a GPS Sensor that reports its location and angle. The GPS Sensor reports the (X, Y) coordinates of the center of rotation of Moby on the Field, in millimeters or inches. This can be used to code Moby to drive to specific locations, and navigate the VRC Virtual Skills Field using sensor feedback instead of set distances.

The Field in VRC Virtual Skills ranges from approximately -1800mm to 1800mm for the X and Y positions.

The center location, or the origin (0,0), is located at the Neutral Mobile Goal in the center of the Field.

The Rings, Platforms and Mobile Goals on the VRC Virtual Skills Field are the same size, and in the same location as the field for an in-person Skills Match.
