Answered: Question on <SG5> and senors

During the autonomous period, if a robot is on the appropriate alliance tile, is a driver/coach pushing a sensor (such as a bumper switch or LED display button) considered changing “the configuration of the Robot”?

Looking at the definition of a robot:

and the pertinent part of <SG5>:

it is unclear if this action is illegal. Although a sensor is part of the robot and human contact does “change the configuration” briefly, the sensor does springs back to an original configuration. Of course, the human interaction does affect the autonomous program that is running.

This would be legal. This is not a configuration change. Furthermore, please see the part of <SG5> which you did not quote.

Thus this specification is legal.
