I just want to verify my understanding on disqualified or qualified light array available. would you please verify the following?
1) mindsensor light array - allowed. (in black)
2) mindsensor Line Follower Sensor - not allowed as it comes with a function which tells you the line pattern. This unit looks very much alike with (1) except it is in red.
3) This is the one which I need to verification: Pololu QTR-8A Reflectance Sensor Array- **
This is a very nice fast sensor. I noticed the library provides a sample function code to to show you how to use close loop control to read a line. Here is the link.. This function gives you a single value to indicate which side of the line is on, 0 to 7000 (i.e. sensor#0 to sensor#7) However, this is just a sample function which comes from part of the installation. Students will still have to write their own closed loop control code to do line tracing. But the sample function comes with the software, I am wonder if this might have rendered the verdict of disqualification for use for the event.
TC, would you please verify?
