This post is targeted more to coaches and FLL participants. I'm curious about your plan of attack for the challenges in this year's FLL events. Most of the NXT bots I've seen to this point do NOT use sensors (other than the built-in rotation sensors in the motors). My question is this: are you choosing to not use sensors for any particular reason (difficult to program, unsure how to use properly, etc.) or have you just not found a use for them in the challenges?
Are any of the teams out there using sensors? Without giving away your secrets, are you finding them useful for successfully completing one or more challenges?
Many of us in the NXT community are simly curious about how FLL participants are doing when it comes to programming... we'd enjoy hearing your comments.
