Apprentice Level: Line Follower

Description:
Follow the line! Can you follow the line around the course? At two locations, the road is not supported (a square hole is cut out of the course under the road - so the road will depress when your robot goes over the course at that point noted in the top view drawing). Also, the hill is not perfectly consistent (the dimensions given are approximate - and will vary depending on the side of the hill you go up or down).

Scoring is based on how far you make it through the course. If you leave the course, we will allow a 1 inch tolerance on each side of the course. If it is more than one inch then you will lose the points for that section. Additional points will be given based on your time in order of finish
