Perimeter and masts

Post by Makhim » Wed 21 Nov 2018, 12:42

Good afternoon. I have 2 questions about rules:
1. How will the perimeter of robots with manipulators be calculated?
2. Is it allowed to put cameras on beacon masts? And is it allowed to use smartphones as camera+image processing device?

We measure the vertical projection of the non deployed robot, and then, in the deployed version of your robot. When you have many moving arms, etc. we take into account the maximum possible perimeter. You can, of course, flange your systems (even electronically) in order to limit the perimeter.

Yes! But, only if it's useful for your match ;).
