So the start signal will be a lighted signal (or XBee signal) and not the Car Wars start sign? I hope this xbee signal is in addition to the rules below as a way to gain the autonomous points.

But there is no indication of the bar or the start signal location in the layout diagram. Is the bar supposed to be the same as the b...

Thanks for the picture, Patrick! We were assuming rough terrain of pebbles and dirt. From the picture looks like bots will be rock-n-rolling. :) Our chassis are prepared for that...might have to do some location reckoning though. Do you have any numbers on how many competitors yet for each category?...

Hate to even say anything to restrict, but I'd rather know now as we redo our design.

QUESTION: Can the two Raw Material boxes be stacked or placed in any way as long as they are within the input area of the Pick-n-Place?

As we are investigating putting together a practice field at the Pikes Peak Makerspace, we are thinking of alternatives to the hay for the field outline.

In the hopes that there is a 2018 Logistics Class I would ask that some of the tech of the field elements be reduced.
