This line following competition is to be held during the November meeting. The course does not have any right angle turns and does not cross itself.
To win the competition, a robot must have the fastest time for completing three laps around the course. Robots may also win categories, however a robot may only be entered into one category.
The only rule restricting robot design is that a robot must not damage the course or otherwise make the course more difficult for competitors. A robot may be of any size, but please be mindful that a 120lb robot may damage the course.
There is no official prize other than the glory of having the fastest robot.
The categories are as follows:
- Prebuilt robots such as the Pololu 3pi.
- Kit-built robots.
- Self-made robots
- Lego robots.
- Robots forged from the Fires of Mount Doom.
The course design is shown in the following images:
