Constructing Playing Field


A similar experiment but using random strategy was done by Matthew Miller. For more information please visit at Rory Savageau at Lawrence Technological University/Veraldi Center for Educational Technology suggested this idea in September, 1999, and Dr. Chan-Jin Chung implemented the idea as a head-to-head game for Lego MindStorms robots in December, 1999. Stay tuned for next year's Robo Firefighter Tag! The tagger is armed with a motorized fan to extinguish a candle light on the taggee!
