Answered: Using Range finders to detect stationary goals

    Just checking but would it be legal/feasible to write an autonomous to stack cones during the driver control, I'm thinking preload and maybe on stationary goals. The stationary goal idea would be to use ultrasonic rangefinders and then move x distance to the stand but are range finders able to detect them with something in their peripheral "vision"?

    Yes, augmenting your standard driver control program with sensors or autonomous functions is legal.

    are range finders able to detect them with something in their peripheral "vision"?

    The purpose of this Q&A is to answer specific rules questions for VRC In the Zone. For robot design advice, we would recommend re-posting this in one of the community channels, such as the general VRC In the Zone channel or the Technical Discussion channel.
