It's 242 bytes, removing the colors nets it another 7 to 235 bytes (javac). I need to find a way to give this little guy some center avoidance, but I am at a loss. I am not to good at writing nanos. If anyone can squeeze anything in there, might be OK for the melee nano rumble. — Chase-san 11:57, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Now down to 230 with colors or 223 without them. — Chase-san 16:02, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Down to 220/213 (javac). — Chase-san 17:11, 30 January 2011 (UTC)


Going back over this code, I found some errors I am going to fix. Mostly with the direction choosing. — Chase-san 16:05, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

EJC 229 bytes, needs work to avoid the walls and it should be pretty good, maybe if I have room add in something to get that missed scan back. — Chase-san 16:32, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

I'll check it out as well to see if there's anything else to be squeezed. Never thought about using try catch blocks... --Miked0801 17:20, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Wall avoidance

While that would minimize the codesize, it would make the wall avoidance much more pronounce (and much worse).

I come back time to time to see if I can make a better wall avoidance for this robot. But so far I have failed terribly.

ahead(.222222 * (direction = -direction));

Sheldor00:18, 8 February 2013
 

And here I was hoping you would come up with some amazing wall avoidance technique. :)

Chase00:38, 8 February 2013

That's probably more in Mike's territory, but I could give it a try.

Sheldor00:48, 8 February 2013
 

Thanks for the attempt. I think I covered most possibilities already however. Unfortunately it only has about 50 bytes to play with.

It still seems to hang up on walls fairly easily. Sometimes it looks very nice and avoids them. But sometimes ti drives straight into them and hangs up on them.

But the idea isn't a bad one at all.

Well it still knocks into walls a good bit, but less then my prototype. But it doesn't hang up on them either. Which is nice. If you are okay, we can brand it wiki or a cs.sheldor and enter it. See how a nano Minimum Risk Movement does.

Chase18:54, 22 February 2013

The table could use a bit of tweaking, and I have a weird feeling that there's something better right under my nose, but let's go ahead and release it.

I'd be happy with just a mention in the comments, but I like the sound of cs.sheldor.Talon. Or, since we are both from the USA, we could emulate Nemo and name it usa.Talon. Whichever you prefer.
