Home -> Teaching -> CSAS 3085/PSYC 3698 -> Task: Follow the Road task
To complete this task, your robot must follow a closed black path. See picture on the left for a possible path.Extra points will be awarded to the robot completing the course in the fastest time, but be careful: the faster your robot moves, the higher its chance of loosing the path completely. Your robot must complete at least two rounds.
