Phase 1 Solution Scope

Based on the Official Rules, it seems that teams can "focus on one component or multiple components of the following: (1) sensing and inspection; (2) mapping, and (3) retrofit tools in Phase 1."

However, several Technology Goals seem to suggest that teams must include retrofit tools in their submission: "Utilizes long-lasting materials" and "Completes time-efficient, high-quality installations"

My team is currently working a robot to help with sensing, mapping, and inspections, without any direct innovation on a retrofit method, its use of durable materials, and installation efficiency. Will this negatively impact the submission or even disqualify it for Phase 1?

That is fine for Phase 1, but the end goal for Phase 2 is a holistic retrofit tool.
