[Dprglist] Please review & comment - Proposed Line Following Course Layouts - Advanced and Novice

DPRG Competitions competitions at dprg.org
Thu Aug 23 05:15:07 PDT 2018

As mentioned in recent monthly meetings,


DPRG will print Advanced and Novice line following courses on banner
material for this falls contests.


Pro:  This style of course is much lighter and easier to make, replicate and
handle than the traditional linoleum tile and tape courses. Seems a bargain
at $1.47 / sq ft.


Con:  Layouts are fixed - to change the course requires printing a new one.
OR, printing 'tiles' on banner requires minimum of 2' x 2' squares, then
kludgy process to join with tape to rearrange.


Please take a look at the proposed courses and speak up if you think
adjustments should be made.  We'd like to print fairly soon, to let people
start to practice for the upcoming 13 Oct Roborama Showcase at Dev Fest


And if you're interested to compete on 13 Oct, be sure to check logistics
and register here



Reminder, these courses are intended to serve rules defined here:   



Both courses are designed to fit within the 7' x 10' can-can arena, so that
we can be space efficient if/as needed.


The advanced course is estimated around 417 inches, just over the 400 inch
rule definition - close enough:


The novice course comes is estimated right at 300 inches:

Ps. The recently printed Challenge line following course is still in good
shape - no need to reprint that one yet.  We need more people to go for it
and help wear it out with their robots..
