We are a team that competes in the LightWeight category on this year’s RoboCup Junior and since we could not resolve these two questions we decided to ask on the forum.
Why is interference caused by ultrasonic sensors tolerated? That is if both teams are using ultrasonic sensors and both claim that ultrasonic sensors from the other team cause interference should both teams turn of their sensors?
What if only one team is affected and the other uses clever programming and filtering to make a more robust system.
Should then also both teams turn them off?
We are asking this because we want to use ir tof sensors and we want to know what measures we need to take in order not to interfere with sensors from the other teams ( we tried it on our sensors and they were not affected ) since many teams might use output that is not filtered or processed by other means.
Where can we find technical documentation from the last year’s teams, we found the collection of posters and that helped us a lot, but a lot of technical detail is missing?
