Issues with GPS Sensor and Field

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has tested to see if the GPS sensor has reduced usability with the new field. From what I saw, it seems like the struts holding the high goal up are blocking the GPS tape around the field, which may increase the dead zones that the robot has. Has anyone used the GPS sensor for their robot and experienced larger than normal dead zones around the goals?

Thanks!

Sounds like a good time to come up with a test procedure to see if this is the case with GPS strips on metal perimeters, and portable perimeters, with and without Spin Up field elements. Then the test can done by different teams to see the extent of the “dead zones” you perceive.

Good engineering exercise that results can crowd sourced…
