important notes to regional host sites to setup playing fields
Important notes to Regional Host Sites to setup playing fields:
  • No direct sunlight
  • Check if the floor is too reflective. Use Lego RCX and a light sensor to measure the following:
    • The light value on white surface
    • The light value on black line
    • The light value outside edge – This value should be less than the white surface value and similar to the black line. If not, you may need carpets or tarps.
