Robots should start in sector ‘16’. When sequence announced, the robot should visit corresponding sectors in the correct order. Each robot will have own timer, that starts after robot visit sector with the first sequence number (or 5 minutes after sequence published). Each robot will have maximum 20 minutes to complete tasks. A robot which got most points - wins. If multiple robots got the same number of points, the one who perform faster wins.
For each visited sector, robot gets 1 point.
To get 1 point for visiting sector, the robot should be at least 70% inside it. If the robot is only touching sector, it could be counted, but no score awarded. Each team could use “skip sector” action 3 times at most. “Skip sector” means that number from sequence is ignored by the robot, and no points awarded for that sector; that action cost 5 points.
Number sequence will be generated semi randomly, ensuring, that there is always 1 sector between them.
If the current number is 6, then the next could be only: 4,8,12,13,14,15,16
If the current number is 14, then the next could be any, except closest to 14.
Robots should have led/lamp on top, so they are visible. When the robot is in the correct sector, it should turn led on for 1 seconds, and then turn it off.
