The rules don't preclude the robot touching the wall when starting at base, only that nothing goes over the wall.
Using the wall to align the robot is a very smart strategy. It is fast and reasonably accurate.
I apologize if this has been answered already, but wanted to check with the
experts! I seem to recall last year, the rules prohibited the robot starting position
to be against a wall. We are working on our starting positions for all of our
missions and are finding it hard to have each member start the robot the same,
therefore the mission can run a bit differently. One team member wanted to have
the robot start against the wall each time.
Is that allowed?
