Maybe some example scenarios would be appropriate -
In the "testing the levees challenge" , robot has moved only partially
out of base - robot is touched when:
1) still not yet reached the challenge model (penalty ?)
2) challenge model has been activated , and other end of robot is
sitting on the challenge model's activation bar ( penalty ?)
3) challenge model has been activated, robot has moved off challenge
model's activation bar and 'heading' back ( legal ?)
In other missions where the robot has completely left base performed a
mission and is returning to base - robot is touched when:
4) robot is completely in base but still rolling ( legal )
5) robot is partially in base but still rolling ( legal )
6) robot is partially in base but it is bringing back a scoring object
that is on a section of the robot that has not crossed over the home
base line. (penalty?)
