Answered: Pneumatics Pressure Gauge in College

In the college competition, non-vex sensors are allowed to be used on a robot as long as they meet the flowing conditions:

Does this mean that an analogue (needle and dial) pressure sensor could be used? It is illegal in the high school game, as it is functional, and non-vex. But the only way in which it violates the college rules is that it does not connect to the microcontroller. Does this mean that in the college game, such a gauge could be used provided that it was linked to the microcontroller, even if the link was a useless piece of wire soldered on? Or a gauge that had both dial, and serial/electronic outputs?

Yes, both usages you’ve described would be legal in the College Challenge.
