Ensure Robots Don’t Do “The Thing”
“The Thing” is when a robot gets flipped over onto its back or side, rendering it immobile and unable to continue the battle. This is an embarrassing way to lose, so it is important to check for positions like this in advanced. In most cases adding a screw or bolt to the offending surface is enough to prevent this failure mode.
