Post Robo-Slalom Challenge
What is the best way to successfully naviagate through the Robo-Slalom challenge? I was thinking of using the encoders and slowing down alternate motors to turn through the cups.

That will work if you know the exact distance between the cups and you manage to minimise the amount of slippage on the wheels.

If you were doing a slalom on your skis, how would you determine when to turn? Try and put yourself in the place of the robot. What do you have to know in order to determine you've gone past the cone and need to turn?
