Configuration Files

The configuration files are provided INSERT TARBALL LINK.

Inside there is a client skeleton files which you are welcome to use or not use. There is also a script to generate the .cfg file. Please not that it will place the robot in a different starting location each time. I will run this script before I test your robot, so you cannot assume that your robot will start in any particular location.
