    On-Board Camera?

    A: No. The camera does have a battery which is a violation the stored energy rule specified in <RG10>. The GDC is also concerned about possible interference from the camera's built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, and IR rangefinder (if present). Therefore, cameras are not permitted on the robot.
