We would like to know what is defined as legal “limited human interaction?”
My team assumed that this semi-ambiguous wording was chosen to allow for drive team members to preload balls into their robot, thus interacting in a limited manner. However, at a previous competition we saw a team manually triggering a sensor to control their robot during the programming skills challenge.
We would like a clarification for future events. Is it legal or is it illegal to trigger code manually, using a button on one’s robot? Does this change if one does not contact one’s robot, but instead utilizes a vex ultrasonic range finder as a trigger in lieu of a button? My team figured that these scenarios would not meet the caveats of a “programming” challenge, so it would certainly change our strategy were it legal.
