Dual Mode Details

The event involves building a remote controlled ‘all terrain’ vehicle that can move and steer both on land and water.

  1. The track may be uneven and may contain obstacles.
  2. Different balls will represent different score as per their difficulty of position.
  1. Robot must fit inside a box of dimensions 50cm x 50cm x 50cm during the whole course of run.
  2. The external wired/wireless remote control used to control the machine manually as well as the externally placed power supply is not included in this size constraint.
  3. Machine cannot be constructed using readymade lego kits or any readymade mechanism.Violating this clause will lead to disqualification.
  1. A team may consist of a maximum of 4 members.
  2. Teams can be made from different years and colleges as well.
  3. During the race if the robot fails to cross an obstacle, the team may skip it and the robot can start from the next one. However, the team will be penalized with additional time as mentioned on the check point.
  4. At no point during the run, robot should come out of racing track (due to poor manoeuvring or hitting by the opponent robot etc.). In such a case, the robot will be placed on the last cleared checkpoint and allowed to continue from that point.
  5. Organizers’ decision in this regard would be the final and binding.
  6. To encourage wireless control, the team will be given a time bonus of +20 seconds if your robot is wirelessly maneuverer.
  7. The team will not be allowed to touch their robot once it has entered the track, unless and otherwise required with prior permission of the organizer but the timer won’t be stopped. There is no provision for timeout if the robot needs to be fixed while on the track.
  8. Power supply will be provided in the event premises and needed to be checked by the team itself.

The following characteristics of the event will be judged.

  1. Efficiency
  2. Minimum time taken to complete the track
