The System's Feedback Loop:
The system responds as soon as there is a
collision involving the Pac-Head and a character (the symbolic equivalent
of the bumper car) as well as the scanner (the symbolic equivalent of the Pac-Head)
and a bumper car. That occurs in the following manner: the scannerís cone of
light comes in contact with one of the light cells mounted on the bumper cars,
whereupon the power supply to the vehicle is cut off and it comes to a halt.
The Pac-Head simultaneously devours the character in virtual space, which in
turn can be heard at high volume in the Autodrom.
