The idea is that we want to have these extra emittors as near as
possible to the enemy beacon that is on top of robot.  That's what
I mean by "beacon level".  The corresponding extra sensors would
be as near as possible to our normal sensors.

No more so than that question comes-up for our normal sensors, or for
the enemy's emitter (beacon).

If we were to put them at bumper-level, where Joyce suggested, then
they would need more robustness consideration than the normal
