All students with a valid identity card from their respective educational institution are eligible to participate in the event.
All teams will be given a calibration time of 10 minutes.
Maximum time given for one trial is 10 minutes.
The starting procedure of the robot should be simple and should not involve giving the bot any manual force or impulse in any direction.
Each bot is supposed to indicate with a suitable indicator (LED, Buzzer, etc.), clearly visible to the judges, when the bot has reached the check point.This indicator should be off at all other times. Any team unable to indicate this accurately will incur a penalty.
Before each game begins, the participants should clearly describe how their robot detects the obstacles and indicates at the check point.
Each team is allowed a maximum of 3 trials. All trials require the approval of the presiding judges before the bot can be removed from the arena. In each trial, the timer and points will be set back to zero. The best time/points of the three trials will be considered.
The judges can reduce the number of trials for any team if time constraint arises.
During a trial, the bot will have to be restarted by putting it back on the start zone. For a trial, the bot will have to be in Power Off mode and turned on again at the start zone on the signal of the judges.
Between trials, participants may not feed information about the arena to the bot.
However, participants are allowed to: Adjust sensors (Gain, Position etc.), Change speed settings and Make repairs. However, a participant may not alter a bot in a manner that alters its weight (e.g. removal of a bulky sensor array or switching to lighter batteries to get better speed). The judges shall arbitrate. The points earned by the team till that time will be retained.
• Participants will not be allowed to handle the obstacle positions on the track. Only event managers are allowed to handle the obstacles.
• Participants are not allowed to keep anything inside the arena other than the bot.
• The judges may stop any robot at any time if they feel that it is performing, or is about to perform, any action that is dangerous or hazardous to people or equipment. No robot is allowed to use any flammable, combustible, explosive or potentially dangerous processes.
• Readymade sensors (eg. line array sensors) could be used.
1.The dimensions of the bot should be within 200 x 200 x 200 millimeters (Length x Breath x Height).
2.The Potential Difference between any two points in a robot should not exceed 12V.
3.The Bot must and only have on-board power supplies.
4.The bot must use the components provided by Texas Instruments.
5.The Bot should not have any sensors for sensing the environment around.(eg. Kinect etc)
6.Use of onboard camera is prohibited.
7. The organizers reserve the right to disqualify any bot that is found to not adhere to the specifications.
• The time and points measured by the organizers will be final and will be used for scoring the teams. Time or points measured by any participant by any other means is not acceptable for scoring. In case of any disputes / discrepancies, the organizers' decision will be final and binding.
• Participants must bring their own computers, programmers and software if they wish to program their robots at the competition site.
• The participants are requested not to assume anything without discussing with the event managers.
• The organizers reserve the rights to change any or all of the above rules as they deem fit.
Maximum of 4 participants per team.
Teams should register themselves online.
No person shall be a member of two teams.
A team can constitute of member from different colleges.
Participants are requested not to assume any details.
Other details regarding the arena can be clarified directly with the event managers.
