Positioning our robot in autonomous

How do people line up their robots for autonomous. We currently eye it with the back field as reference. We are wondering how other people do it other than just looking. Maybe use sensors or something? We saw a team use color sensors to maintain accuracy when they are positioning so it doesn’t take that long for them to move the robot from one side to the other, but they could move sideways with a fifth onmi wheel. We wanted to incorporate sensors to help ensure a fast, yet accurate position. This is our teams first year doing VEX IQ, and we are going to State (with the excellence award twice), so we need a bit of help. Thank you in advance!

it varies… some just pick reference points on their robots and the field, some build a jig to properly line the robot up,
