Landing of minidrone and changing the default track in simulation.

We are now at the final stage of testing our line-follower algorithm, our current algorithm of landing is just changing the z component of pos_ref from -1 to -0.1 and keeping x and y the same, which will stop the simulation by floor contact and the drone in the visualization is indeed at rest on the ground. Is this simple strategy good enough to pass the simulation test and how about for landing a real drone by this strategy?
Moreover, can we change the default track in the simulation because we want to test the robustness of our algorithm against different tracks.
Thank you in advance.

As long as the stratergy works on different tracks, you should be good.
As mentioned in Section B.3 of the Rules and Guidelines document, MathWorks will be testing your algorithm on different tracks. We would definitely encourage you to test it on different tracks. In fact, the track has dimensions different from the dimensions mentioned in Section F of the Rules and Guidelines document. You can go through this video to know how to change the track.
I hope this helps!
