San Diego regional 2022

Yooo what’s up San Diego regional. Just a few tips for yall and create a thread for the vent
Del Mar is open air and can get very cold so pack a sweatshirt or two and maybe an old bag and tag bag for your robot to prevent moisture damage
It may also rain Saturday to Sunday night so be prepared for that in your travel plans.
Also get your scouting team in a good place due to the abundance of seating(not mutch is close though)
there will also be some fair food as well I think
See yall thursday/firday

Anyone else have problems with limelights not liking the amount of natural light in the venue? We have an interesting solution lined up but I’m curious if it affected anyone else as dramatically as us.

I think it’s hurting everyone who’s using limelights very bad, because not only can we all not align to the hub, but we also can’t calculate our flywheel velocity and stuff without the limelight distance calculation

I wish the venue let in less light

Yes, this is a common issue with the venue. The practice field doesn’t have the same issues (just others) so it’s a bad way to try to tune. I found success by tuning the exposure down, brightness up, red balance up, and blue balance down. The goal is to make the skylight orange while keeping the targets green. The main issue we faced was not the glare off the targets, it was just that we were sighting the target against the skylight which is too bright to remove with exposure.

From what I have heard, nobody at the event has a working limelight pipeline. Sounds rough.
