TASKS FOR THE STACK BOT
Initially both the stack bot and the attack bot are placed in their respective start positions as shown in the arena. The attack bot is initially inactive.
The stack bot should pick up the multi colored boxes from the stack area and should place it over the colored strips in the corner, in such a way that the top face color matches with the stripe color.
As soon as one team completes arranging the boxes, the attack bot of both the teams are released. Both the attack bots are released if no team completes placing the 4 colored boxes within 6 minutes.
Now the stack bot can start stacking 7 black boxes inside the stacking circle.
Teams would get points according to the number of boxes stacked in stack zone at the end of the game.
The game ends when the stacking bot places seven single colored boxes inside the stacking circle or when time limit of eight minutes starting from the time attack bot is released.

Gate1: The attack bot should move over an obstacle of dimensions 5cm x 5cm x 10cm.(height : 10cm) NOTE: If the bot lifts its base by a minimum of 5 cm from its normal base position to move over the obstacle then the team is awarded a bonus of 50 points.
Gate 2: The Gate 2 consists of 9 obstacles as shown in the figure. The bot should move in between the obstacles without touching them. Points will be deducted on touching the obstacles.
Once the bot reaches the attack zone the bot should load the ping pong balls in the loading zone.
