For the FRC at home challenges, rule GSC2-1 states that "Teams may signal neither the path (A or B) nor the GSC2 determination (red or blue) to the ROBOT. Placement of the robot is not considered signaling.
In context of this rule, would a sensor on the robot be allowed to determine which of the two paths it should take in the middle of the round? For instance, placing the robot a particular distance from a marker so that the robot would know where we placed it on the field and therefore be able to figure out which route it should follow. If this is considered signaling and therefore not permitted, is the idea behind this rule to force teams to use a predetermined path that visits redundant locations that do not contain power cells in addition to the ones that do? If anyone has any other strategical recommendations for this challenge, I’d be interested in hearing them.
