- I red this part of the draft 2017 rules:
1.5.3 Victims are located near the floor of the field (centered approximately 7 cm above the floor). The temperature of the victim simulates human body temperature between 28°C to 40°C.
1.5.4 The organizers will try to keep a minimum difference of 10°C between heated victims’ temperatures and the ambient temperature of the field.
During the last challenge I joined with my team the temperature of the competition arena was around 18°C and the referees put the temperature of all the thermocouples to 55°C. Is it a violation of the rule 1.5.3 ?
Moreover: every opposite sides of the walls where the thermocouples were active reached a temperature of 40°C because of an imperfect insulation. The referees decided to grant points in both sides of the wall. It sounds reasonable because a robot cannot distinguish a real thermocouple and its effect to the opposite side (in those cases). Is it correct?
Best regards, danke, tack.
