Post any questions about the 2014 KIPR Autonomous Aerial Robot Tournament here!

Official rules at: http://www.kipr.org/aerial-robot

Game field Update 6/30/14 - the short walls are now freestanding, and do not have a horizontal bar at 12"! Check Updated Game Build. If you have already built the Game field, the function does not change.

1. The game document says
"Botguy will be randomly placed within Zone D, behind Zone C’s wall. He will be placed at one of three locations behind the wall."
The way I read that, this could mean one of three different things:
A) Botguy will be placed in Zone D anywhere along an imaginary line that is 1, 2, or 3 feet from the PVC (or black tape).
B) Botguy will be placed in an area of Zone D behind Zone C's wall along an imaginary line that is 1, 2, or 3 feet from the PVC (or black tape).
C) Botguy will be placed in a spot 1, 2, or 3 feet from the PVC (or black tape) along an imaginary line starting at the center of Zone C's wall and perpendicular to the PVC or black tape.

It is C - Botguy will be placed in a spot 1, 2, or 3 feet from the PVC (or black tape) along an imaginary line starting at the center of Zone C's wall and perpendicular to the PVC or black tape.

In the original game board set up (which we built) there was nothing touching the ground on the front row of walls. Now that they are free standling, could you please provide a picture of what they are standing on. Thanks.

I have now looked at drawing. I did not realize it was updated, because it still said v 1,0. Am I correct that the pvc t extends about an inch on each side of the blue wall?
