[Explorer] Cannon Bore minimum diameter?

Post by theokell » Wed Jan 09, 2019 6:43 pm

The competition manual explains that the cannon bore can be a range of diameters, but we aren't given any constraints as to their possible size. We're exploring an idea where our ROV would insert an apparatus into the front of the bore, which would clamp outward and hold the cannon with friction. Would this be possible? Are we allowed to know the smallest possible diameter that the bore could be, so we can design our device to accommodate it?

No, there is no minimum size of the bore. Also (as stated in the previous post) the bore may be blocked by weights inside the cannon or other items.

Good luck.
