Reid - thanks for the answers to the other questions.
PENS: Here is what is important to us regarding the pens:
o the doors should be exactly 50 cm wide. o the lip on the bottom should be exactly 5 cm tall. o the lip and the door should be painted the same color. o we want a door, not just a lip, it will provide more color to search for. o tall walls on the pens are good. o other dimensions of the pens don't matter.
COLORS: It sounds like you're trying to help us out by making distinct colors for everything. I don't know if other teams have the same problem, but in our case this works against us. Our hardware is only capable of tracking 3 colors. The ideal color scheme for us would be something like:
o BLACK: rocks and danger zones o RED: live martians, and live martian pen door. o BLUE: dead martians and dead martian pen door.
