Will IR sense other tape?

I was wondering if the IR sensors will get distracted by the red or yellow tape on the field where it crosses the reflective tape. I assume that it depends on the calibration of the sensors, so I was wondering if anyone knows exactly what kind of tape will be used (duct tape etc.), what brand... so that I could test it with the sensors.

Thanks!
Maria

Re: Will IR sense other tape?

The material for the tracking lines on the floor is not reflective tape. It is 2" wide grey gaffer's tape.
