My team has asked that I post something to this forum in hopes of improving the playing field.
For Ringmaster the team started using the line follower. They tried the “edge” follower example in RobotC but didn’t like the jerky motion . Instead they used the example code and physical setup from EDR, I.e. used three IQ color sensors. Unfortunately the white dots present in all the black lines caused issues especially when attempting to line follow, gyro turn, then line follow again. The problem occurs if all three sensors saw white after the turn it didn’t work . To see if it was their set up they used black electrical tape to cover up the white “holes” and the problem went away.
Would it be possible to create a package for sale of black tabs so the black lines would be all black avoiding this issue?
p.s. The team knows this might be a huge logistical nightmare given the number of fields out there. But they still wanted me to ask.
