# Circular Targeting

(Redirected from CT)

## Description

A method of targeting which assumes that the target will continue moving with the same turn rate and at the same speed.

## Example

This is the code used in WaveSurfing Challenge Bot C:

```//Add import robocode.util.* for Utils and import java.awt.geom.* for Point2D
//This code goes in your onScannedRobot() event handler

double bulletPower = Math.min(3.0,getEnergy());
double myX = getX();
double myY = getY();
double enemyX = getX() + e.getDistance() * Math.sin(absoluteBearing);
double enemyY = getY() + e.getDistance() * Math.cos(absoluteBearing);
double enemyVelocity = e.getVelocity();

double deltaTime = 0;
double battleFieldHeight = getBattleFieldHeight(),
battleFieldWidth = getBattleFieldWidth();
double predictedX = enemyX, predictedY = enemyY;
while((++deltaTime) * (20.0 - 3.0 * bulletPower) <
Point2D.Double.distance(myX, myY, predictedX, predictedY)){
if(	predictedX < 18.0
|| predictedY < 18.0
|| predictedX > battleFieldWidth - 18.0
|| predictedY > battleFieldHeight - 18.0){

predictedX = Math.min(Math.max(18.0, predictedX),
battleFieldWidth - 18.0);
predictedY = Math.min(Math.max(18.0, predictedY),
battleFieldHeight - 18.0);
break;
}
}
double theta = Utils.normalAbsoluteAngle(Math.atan2(
predictedX - getX(), predictedY - getY()));

fire(3);```
