Robo Race Challenge
The challenge is to build your own robot either wireless within the specified dimensions in order to achieve the maximum speed to beat other robots on the given track and reach the finishing line in minimum time. The robot must run on the given racetrack. The robot must start behind the starting mark and is considered to have crossed the finishing line if any part of the robot crosses it when the robot has completed a full lap of the course. Your robot must be manually/autonomously controlled, and it should be capable of traversing over different terrain and hurdles without going outside the track. Separate points will be awarded for overcoming the hurdles. The bot with the maximum cumulative points will win the race. The competition area has a special place defined for the robot’s operation (hereafter COMPETITION FIELD).
- 300 Teams to participate in Robo Race Challenge.
- All participants will get a certification of Participation from “All India Council For Robotics & Automation (AICRA)” and the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Govt of India.
- INR 2,00,000 to be awarded to winning teams.
- Jr. Category : Schools or individuals may nominate. Participants’ age should be below 18.
- Sr. Category : Colleges/Universities or individuals may nominate. Participants’ age should be between 18 to 28.
A match is played by a single team in one go, with each team consisting of 1 Wireless Bot.
- An individual may participate or construct a team of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 members. Any institution (School/College/University/Vocational Institution) or group of students (within defined age), may form a team.
- Register the team for the specified competition online on the official Technoxian website only.
- Construct a remotely controlled wireless, autonomous, or manual Bot. The robot must not be made from any ready-made kit, if found so, the team will be disqualified.
- Prepare a video of 1 minute to 5 minutes (maximum 100 MB), showcasing team readiness, creativity, preparing for challenges, or anything to show passion to participate in TechnoXian. Share the video either on email at firstname.lastname@example.org (as google drive or V transfer) or WhatsApp at +918924934336 mentioning Your Team Registration ID. All videos will be uploaded on TechnoXIan YouTube channel. The top 5 Maximum views will have special recognition at the tournament.
The participating bots should be wireless and must be controlled remotely. It can be circular / Rectangular in style.
A bot must fit inside a 30 centimeters wide and 40 centimeters high cube at any point in time. Maximum weight should not be more than 5Kgs (including battery for wirelessly controlled bots. However, a tolerance of 5% is acceptable.). Additionally, the top of the robot must adhere to the standard pattern size and surface constraints. Dribbling devices that actively exert spin on the ball, which keep the ball in contact with the robot are permitted under certain conditions. Participants need to ensure:
- Batteries must be sealed, immobilized electrolyte type (gel cell, lithium, NiCad, or dry cells).
- The electric voltage anywhere in the machine should not be more than 12V DC at any point in time for each robot.
- The Bot must not emit infrared light. However, optical sensors (e.g. infrared-distance-sensors) may be used if they do not affect other Bots.
- Infrared light-reflecting materials must not be used on the outside. If robots are painted, they must be painted matte. Minor parts that reflect infrared light could be used only if other robots are not affected. Robots must not produce magnetic interference for other robots on the field.
- If a team claims that their robot is affected by the other team’s robot in any way they must show proof/evidence of the interference. Any interference must be confirmed by a Referee if a claim is placed by the other team.
- The robot can be autonomous or manually controlled using a Remote-control system.
- Robots must be constructed and programmed in a way that their movement is not limited to only one dimension and must move in all directions.
- Any robotic parts/building material can be used until the robot meets the above specifications and if the design and construction are primarily the original work of the team as ready-made robots are not allowed to compete in the competition.
The Racing track has a track of a total length of 80-90ft (approximately) with a dimension of 30X20 SqF. The track will be 40 cm wide and will be having certain checkpoints before the hurdles. The surface and course line may have un-evenness as well as different hurdles will be there on the race track trying to slow down the Bot. Predefined Obstacles for the competition will include Switch Bridge, speed breakers, marble pit, slippery path, rotating ting disc, curve ramp down, seesaw, etc.

NOTE: Actual track design may vary from the one shown in the image below and is subject to change before the event commence.
- The competition is divided into two trial runs
- Each team will have 2 trial runs. After the trials are over, the fastest time achieved during those trials will be chosen for the team.
- One trial should not last more than five minutes. After the trial time is over, the TIME-UP BUZZER will sound, and the team will be asked to remove the robot from the COMPETITION FIELD.
- Any time used to adjust the robot between runs is included in the 5 minutes. The run (from the start to the finish point) in which a robot successfully reaches the destination point will be given as a run time. The minimum run time shall be the robot’s official time.
- Each competing Robot will be given points for successfully overcoming the hurdles present on the track. Points allocated to different hurdles will depend upon the difficulty level of the same. Total points achieved for successfully overcoming the hurdles will be added to the final run time of each team in order to calculate the final score. If the team skips any hurdle, it will lose the point for the same.
- Negative points will be awarded for each time the Robot moves out of the track.
- Each run will start from the starting point. The operator may abort a run at any time. If an operator touches the robot during a run, the team will score negative points and shall start from the previous checkpoint. If a robot has already crossed the finish line, it may be removed at any time without affecting the runtime of that run.
- The run timer will start when the front edge of the robot crosses the start line and stops when the front edge of the robot crosses the finish line.
- Negative points will be awarded for every human touch which will affect the final score of the team.
- The first prize goes to the robot with the shortest official time and achieves the maximum no of points. Second prize to the next shortest, and so on.
- If there is a tie, another chance will be given to the teams.
