Thanks a lot for your support. We do look for changes in sensor readings instead of hardcoded values, but the light made our value change practically 0, so we couldn’t do much about it. We ended up
We also considered using backup sensors, however, VEX only offers 8 legacy ports at the moment, all of which we’ve used up. I was really looking forward to the release of their legacy port expander, but as expected, it hasn’t released yet. I’ve attempted using sensor fusion as well, but we simply don’t even have enough ports to use sensors on all our subsystems, much less combine readings.
This year will be my third year at worlds, but our first using line sensors. It’ll also be the first year the vision sensor will be used at worlds in a competitive environment. I wanted to be absolutely certain Worlds would be sensor-safe, as others have mentioned that events they’ve been to used tungsten lighting, which seems to mess with sensors as well.
In any case, thanks a lot for commenting and trying to help us out; we appreciate it.
