According to New for 2019 there’s around a half a second delay between sandstorm and teleop.
I’m wondering how noticeable this is to drivers and if anyone has actually driven in a match before what they’re experience is with the transition.
From watching videos it’s hard to tell if robots are just disoriented after sandstorm or if it being disabled for half a second is the cause of that. Since this is the first year without an actual autonomous I’m curious what switching between the periods is like while driving using a camera.
Down on the field as a coach (not a driver), I will say it’s very disorienting to figure out where things are on the field if you don’t have a solid vision aided setup. In the same CHS event as v.jagan, we were one of the only teams that ran the sandstorm period with autonomous code.
I trust our software team to get us where we need to be.
