What I’m looking for is a detailed, preferrably overhead view of the Autonomous mode field. Hopefully I can find one with measurements, and detailed views so we can start mapping out autonomous mode strategies before we even recieve our vex programming kit.
“there is no spoone”
In the 63 page Field Assembly Manual document (http://www.vexlabs.com/docs/detailed_field_drawings.pdf) posted on the VexLabs website, I think that you will probably find all the views and measurements that you need. They also have posted an Overview document, a field bill of materials, and suggestions on constructing a low-cost field (http://www.vexlabs.com/vex-robotics-field-parts.shtml). VexLabs (http://www.vexlabs.com/) is part of IFI, and is a sponsor of the FVC competition. They source parts kits for folks building their own competition field, as well as competition-legal Vex robot components. Highly recommended!
Right on…all of your answers are there. Please continue to use this page as home base as all links follow from there:
