Nothing is perfect, you can count on that. Even if you try your best to
make your robot as precise as possible, there will be errors that you
cannot control. For example, the floor of the maze can have pot-holes
and spots where traction is low (due to dust). The maze can have up to
5% tolerance according to the rules.
Fortunately, if you prepare the robot for errors, most errors can be
corrected before they are not recoverable. This chapter discusses various
sources of errors and how such errors can be detected and corrected.
