    I wanted to know if any of you know the clarifications on the autonomous line. Is it that you can't have a part of you robot touching the other side, or is it that you can't have a part over the other side, but still in the air.
    To simplify, could we have a line tracker that hovers over the autonomous line to stop us if a motor goes out and we can't drive right.

    The rules are quite explicit about it being contact with the tiles that is banned:

    The pair of white tape lines that run across the center of the field, underneath the Platforms. Per <SG3>, Robots may not contact the foam field tiles on the opposite Alliance’s side of the Autonomous Line during the Autonomous Period.

    Your line tracker should be fine.
