Maybe we need to implement AI in the robot, and it becomes the fifth member of the drive team.

Team: this is such an important point that we might want to assign someone to measure, track and enforce this rule. While the CAD specs may pass muster, it's not the same as actually measuring the robot with bumpers to verify this.

More opening and closing doors imagery... Similar imagery in the teaser... hmmmmmm. I stand by my guess that we're shooting cylinder-shaped game pieces (maybe foam rollers like for stretching muscles) into opening and closing storage bay doors prior to some sort of lift off end game task.

Following up: Here are a few things I glean from the Stop Build Day blog, comments on the blog & responses, the new rules, and the active Q&A system concerning the rules. Overall, other than "no bag day", the rules affect many other teams more than ours, I think, but there are still implications so good to understand them.
1. While "the line" is still being debated, some forms of cheesecaking are no longer allowed. For those unfamiliar, cheesecaking refers to the practice of a highly capable team adding a mechanism to a less capable team's robot during a competition event. Since this affects our team very little, I won't go into details, but I will say "bolt on" cheesecaking of a fully assembled mechanism (like a climber in 2017) is no longer allowed.
2. The concept of "holdback" is gone, including the weight limit. There seems to no longer be a weight limit on the amount of extra fabricated spare parts, spare assembled mechanisms, etc. Example: Last year, we were limited to (I think) 30 lbs of holdback, and I believe we used that allowance to bring an extra intake assembly, an extra chute (?), and some other spares. It appears now there is no weight limit on spare fabricated parts / assemblies. So if these new rules were in place last year, we could have brought 5 spare assembled cargo arms, 5 fully assembled extra chutes, etc. That's how the rules are being interpreted so far; we'll see if there are other rules in the 2020 game manual that do restrict what can be brought into the pit.
3. The old bagged robot weight limit + holdback weight limit are replaced by a single inspected robot weight limit. The robot chassis/drivetrain + mechanisms (installed or not installed but install-able) + bumpers inspected for use in competition need to weight 150 lbs or less. Additionally, it is stated there will be a separate R5 robot weight limit rule (available at kickoff) that will need to be followed. Presumably, the on-the-field robot weight limit will be less than 150 lbs. This could be to just separate robot weight from bumper weight, or there could be something else interesting planned for the 2020 game rule R5.
