Quadcopter

April 20, 2021

Event Navigation

  • The challenge is to Build a Quadcopter which is aerodynamically stable to achieve a successful flight.
  • Quadcopter must be built within the specified dimensions.
  • The Quadcopter should be able to take off, land and can do simple and complex maneuvers.
  • The competition has 2 Rounds i.e. elimination round and final round. Performance of the Quadcopter in all the Rounds/Arena will be evaluated individually.
  • Team Scoring the maximum points in the final round will be nominated as the Winner of the competition.
  • The performance of the Quadcopters in all the round will be evaluated individually.
  • 500+ Teams participating in Quadcopter Championship Challenge.
  • All participants will get certification of Participation from “Council for Robotics & Automation(AICRA)” . Team Coach will get separate certificate.

Dimensions:

  • ” The field area would be approx. 2500m2.

The QuadCopter:

Dimensions:

  • The Quadcopter must be electrically powered only
  • The complete Quadcopter (including Battery and landing gear) should be of length 75cm*75cm*75cm (LxBxH) and must weigh less than 1Kg.
  • There is no restriction on the use of the any Quad frame material or specification of the BLDC Motors, Electronic Speed Controllers, Propellers, Batteries and Weight of the Quadcopter.
  • Ready made toy quadcopter kits are strictly restricted.
  • Construction: Any building material may be used, if the Quad fits the above specifications and as long as the design and construction are primarily the original work of the team.

Hardware Description:

  • Frame (any material)
  • BLDC Motors (no restrictions on motor rating)
  • ESC units
  • Propellers
  • Landing Gear
  • Stabilization units
  • Radio devices
  • Accessories (Optional):

  • Accessories (Optional):
  • Camera
  • FPV Unit
  • Altitude Locking Mechanism
  • There are marked/specified regions/spots to take off and land the quadcopter.
  • Hurdles will be placed at different location in the arena.
  • Fields will have arrows marked to depict maneuvering path
  • Specific check points will be defined on the arena for changing the batteries, adjusting gains, calibration of sensors, etc.
  • Time will be given to the teams for charging their batteries at the completion of every stage. The requirement of time of charging the batteries during the conduct of competition will not be entertained.

Pre-Game setup:

  • Competitors are supposed to report 5 minutes prior to the commencement of the game failing to which will risk disqualification.
  • The Quadcopter will be evaluated on various parameters such as design, construction, and innovation.
  • Every aspect of the Quadcopter will be observed for scoring which includes the connection of various parts, fixing of components, materials used, aeromodelling etc.

Game Clock:
Game clock starts as soon as the referee commands the beginning of the round and stops as soon as the maximum access time (5 Minutes) of that round elapses.

Run Time:
Run time starts as soon as the game clock starts/quadcopter takes/off and stops when the quadcopter lands successfully.

Flight time:
The flight time will be the official time taken by each quadcopter.
” Flight time= (Total Access time for the round)-(Run time)

Round 1 (Elimination Round)

TAKE OFF AND LANDING:

  • In this round the team will be given a maximum of two attempts to complete the challenge. Best score out of the two attempts will be considered as the official score for the round.
  • Maximum time allotted to each team to complete the round is 5 minutes.
  • The challenge is to takeoff from a specific location and land within the boundary of a predetermined circular landing spot in minimum time possible and before the access time elapses
  • Points will be awarded based on the smoothness of taking off and landing, distortion in quad, vibrations and control accuracy etc.
  • Teams unable to complete this task or having low score will be eliminated.
  • If the Quadcopter crashes negative points will be awarded and the run time of the flight will reset but the game clock continues to run.
  • The top 15 teams to complete the circuit with the best timings will move to the final round.

Round 2 (Final Round)

Drone Prix

  • A maximum of two attempts will be provided to complete the challenge. The circuit needs to be completed without avoiding any of the hurdles. Best score out of the two attempts will be considered as the official score for the round.
  • Maximum time allotted to complete the round is 5 min.
  • This stage is to evaluate the perfection in the stability of the Quad Copter and controlling ability of the pilot.
  • During this stage the Quad Copter has to travel through the gaps in the various hurdles, perform maneuvers and complete the circuit in minimum time possible.
  • Points will be awarded for each hurdle and will be scored based on the perfection in control of flight and time taken to complete the circuit.
  • Team completing the round in minimum time to complete the round and scoring maximum point will be nominated as the winner of the competition.
  • If the Quadcopter crashes negative points will awarded and the run time of the flight will reset but the game clock continues to run.

Radio Control:

Radio control requirements:

Radio systems MUST NOT cause interference to other frequency users. At Quadcopter, only the 2.4ghz DSS (Digital Spread Spectrum) frequencies are allowed. Radio telemetry is permitted on 433MHz and 2.4GHz.

Team Members & Mentors:

  • Minimum 2 members and maximum 10 members are allowed in each participating team. Multiple teams from same school/college can participate in the competition.
  • Different Teams from the same school/college must use their own individual Quadcopter for the competition.
  • It’s not mandatory to have coach for each team but a team can have a coach (only one) from the school or outside as a technical advisor.
  • The coach will be seated in a supervisory position around the competition area and is not allowed to touch or repair the Quadcopter during the competition.
  • In case of the coach interference with the Quadcopter or referee’s decisions during the competition, the team will risk disqualification.
  • The Quadcopter should follow the Quadcopter specifications provided. Any deviation from the mentioned specifications will lead to disqualification
  • If the Quad is found making damage to the arena, Judges reserve rights to eliminate a particular Stage/Check Point/Complete Participation.
  • The requirement of time for charging the batteries during the conduct of competition will not be entertained.
  • Replacement of the parts of Quad will be allowed in case only if accident occurs and the referee permits
  • Replacement and charging of battery is allowed only before the commencement of round.

Fair Play:

  • Quadcopter that cause deliberate interference with other quadcopters or damage to the field will be disqualified
  • Team Members who cause deliberate interference with quadcopter or damage to the field will be disqualified.
  • It is expected that the aim of all teams is to play a fair and clean game.

Behavior:

  • Participants who misbehave may be asked to leave the competition area and risk being disqualified from the contest.
  • The rules will be enforced at the discretion of the referees, officials, and local law enforcement authorities.

Organizing Committee:

  • The organizing Committee is a union that consists of few communities and associations. The organizers of this competition are Times Group & Council for Robotics & Automation (AICRA).
  • All decisions about scoring, game play and timing are made by the juries. Teams should completely respect their vote and decisions. Members of the jury will be from different fields of the robotic science.
