Rebound Rumble

Robots start a match in contact with their key, the semicircular plastic area approximately at the free-throw line.[11] Each match lasts 135 seconds[9] and is divided into two portions: Hybrid mode and Teleoperated (Teleop) mode.[11] During Hybrid mode, two robots on each alliance have to act autonomously, while the third may be controlled by means of a Microsoft Kinect or act autonomously.[8][11] During Teleop, all robots are controlled by human drivers.[11]
