Team Pink Can't be Pink

Because nothing on a robot can interfere with the camera's it seems that the pink team can't have a pink roccobot. I just thought this was interesting, and was kinda wondering if they realized. (Although knowing them they probably did).

Fortunately the world is full of many colors to choose from. I'm sure they're worrying about bigger things at the moment than that.

Re: Team Pink Can't be Pink

Technically the rules don't say that they can't be pink, but rather that if their robot interferes with the vision system they will be asked to rectify the situation.

After looking up the rules, the only rule I see is <R02>-C Any devices or decorations specifically intended to jam or interfere with the remote sensing
capabilities (including vision systems, acoustic range finders, sonars, infra-red proximity detectors, etc.) of another robot (i.e. changing ROBOT color to confuse opponent’s vision system).

Technically they'd never even be changing their color.

If I missed another pertinent section of the manual, someone please correct me.

Re: Team Pink Can't be Pink

Well it (sadly ) shouldn't be allowed because it would disrupt the camera's. And the robots would do that.

p.s. pink's first robot was black.

Re: Team Pink Can't be Pink

If the camera is programmed correctly, a pink robot should not have any effect unless the robot is patterned like the target.

Re: Team Pink Can't be Pink

I don't see why this is even an issue.

The robots are NEVER more than 60" tall.

The Targets are always at a certain height (over 60").

Shouldn't be difficult at all to avoid tracking robots.

Alex, I'm pretty sure it will still be pink.

Re: Team Pink Can't be Pink

The pink team shouldm't have to much trouble, because they are only pink, not pink AND green A good vision system should search for both not just one or the other... their interfreace should be low

This is implying all vision systems will be "good", if their pink color messes up just one robot they will most likely be asked to fix it before they're let on the field again.

This all being said, I think they're aware.

Re: Team Pink Can't be Pink

I haven't worked with the camera, but I'm pretty sure anyone utilizing the color differentiation should be able to differentiate between different shades of the color so if the pink was a flatter color rather than flourescent I think they'll be ok (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). Although I think this is still going to mess with moes traditional neon green.
