Wall following is a skill that would allow a robot to operate in multible
and changing environments. Isn't the firefighting course different in
each
contest as far as room and wall layout?

I agree with Karim. Wall following is a good skill for your robot to
have. 
Robots like Blip run a beautiful wall following course, but there is no
way 
to reward Blip and his builder (of course blip does have an odd sense of 
humor, it might just knock down a wall or two for the heck of it)since
wall 
following is inherently a slower - but skilled - approached to T time or 
quick trip.

But of course, blip would need shrink a bit to run table top.
