That's my bad! Thats what I get for having a conversation about this @ 2am in the morning. We have e-mail confirmation, but no part yet as of 8pm 12/17/07.

I'd imagine that the period of the sine wave is probably somehow related to the number 15 (as in the default posts/page).

Re: pic: Game hint

Here is something that just popped in my head...

The autonomous game: There are n number of blue or red boxes with green stripes on the field. We still get cameras, but they are used to look for the boxes. There are 4 types of boxes:
0 point boxes, 2 point boxes, 4 point boxes, and 8 point boxes (made up values of course)
Each box has a specific IR frequency. What we must do is look for the boxes and decide which box is worth the most, pick it up, and place it in a sand box type pit in the center of the field (going off the hint of the new game doesn't require much field setup).

So... to make it simple: Autonomous mode starts, robots go out, find the box of the right color worth the most points, pick it up, place it in the pit.

Regular match: All the boxes look the same except some are red and some are blue (due to alliances). The robots must go up to the boxes, determine the value, and decide whether or not to score it.

EDIT: The reason I selected boxes is because we haven't had them in a llloooonnnnggg time...

Re: pic: Game hint

I can see that for auto mode only I can see the IR getting shut off for tele mode (after auto points are tallied) and every "square" is now worth two points only, or something to that nature.

I like the idea though.. it would quite fun to play!

If so, then every one of us here are doing something bad. But since "everyone else is jumping off the bridge", then by the standards of today's society, it automatically makes it right.

You killed it. Now the whole thread and time as we know it will fold upon itself, creating a void where nothing but robotic competitions exsist! Happy?

Wow! I like this theory... it synchs with some of what I've heard and some speculations. It also sounds fun and focuses on the programming end more, which I'm sure would make it a unique challenge.

That describes me perfectly!!! - But the catch for me is, I've grown so numb to the conversation that I sorta skip over the posts re: whether or not this is a hoax (because we know it's not).

And what the heck is a "damped sinusoidal pattern"? I'm fairly certain I've never heard of that before, yet I get the feeling that I will later this year (Hon. Precalc + Hon. Physics = a lot of math)

I believe your post was edited because the modrators have decided that you need to start talk using a real account, and not one that was made to try and give hints (false or otherwise)

You definitely will hear about damped sinusoidal functions in both of those classes. Here is an example:
Basically, it is a sine graph of varying 'height.'

Well, thus my point. A human interpretable signal would be nigh useless for robots in autonomous mode while an IR signal would be highly useful. But in tele-op, the human drivers could easily depend on the human interpretable signals instead of their robot sensing the IR signals. So the IR sensor would be potentially useful but no longer vitally necessary in tele-op.
