Robo Race Details

Build a wireless/wired controlled bot powered by DC motors to travel a specified race track in the least possible time.

  1. The obstacles present on the track may be present in the form of
    1. Sand, gravel, oil, grease, mud, crystal balls, nails, splinters, straws, pipes and other forms of debris.
    2. Blocks, inclined surfaces, stairs and steps of maximum height 4 cm.
    3. Water and fire.
  2. The track may be uneven and Width may vary from 35 CM to 100 CM.
  3. Intervals the whole track will have various checkpoints at regular.
  1. Robot must fit inside a box of dimensions 30cm x 30cm x 30cm 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.
  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 track.
  8.  Power supply will be provided in the event premises and needed to be checked by the team itself.
  1. The teams must adhere to the spirit of healthy competition. The teams must not damage the opponent’s machine in any way. Judges reserve the right to disqualify any team indulging in misbehaviour.
  2. Judges decision shall be treated as final and binding.
  3. The organizers will not hold any responsibility for any damage/loss sustained by the machine/team during the game.

The following characteristics of the event will be judged.

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