ROBO RACE

April 19, 2021

The challenge is to Build your own robot either wired or 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).

  • 500+ Teams participating in RoboRace Challenge.
  • All participants will get certification of Participation from “Council for Robotics & Automation(AICRA)” . Team Coach will get separate certificate.
  • Junior Level ( Below 15 Yrs. )
  • Senior Level ( Above 15 Yrs. )
    • The robot participating in the event can be wired/wireless, autonomous or manual.
    • Lego kits are strictly prohibited. The robot must not be made from any ready-made kit, if found so, the team will be disqualified.
    • The Robot must be non-destructive and non-harmful to humans and the track.
    • Radio systems MUST NOT cause interference to other radio-frequency users.
    • The length of the wire (for wired bots) should be long enough (12 meters approx.) to cover the whole track and wire should remain slacked during the run across the track.
    • Participants must arrange their own batteries.
    • Use of IC engines or compressor is not allowed. All vehicles must depend only on electric motors for their motion and control.
    • The Robot must not emit smoke or fire, leak, stain or soil.

    Dimensions: The following size limitations apply for each robot.

    • Width – Not more than 25 centimeters
    • Length – Not more than 30 centimeters
    • Height – Not more than 25 centimeters
    • Maximum weight must not exceed 5 kg (including battery for wirelessly controlled Robots). However, a tolerance of 5% is acceptable.

    Power Source:

    • Only Electrically powered Robots are allowed in the event.
    • 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 then 12V DC at any point of time.
    • Battery can be placed on the robot or can be carried in hand by the robot operator in case of wireless robot.

    Construction: 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 robot participating in the event can be wired/wireless, autonomous or manual.

    Construction: 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 competition track has a track of total length 80-90ft (approximately).
  • The track will be 40 cm wide.
  • Track Dimension: 30X20 Sq. Ft.
  • The track will be having certain checkpoints before the hurdles.
  • The track surface and course line may have un-evenness
  • Different hurdles will be there on the race track trying to slow down the Robot.
  • 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 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 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 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.
  • First prize goes to the robot with the shortest official time and achieving maximum no of points. Second prize to the next shortest, and so on.
  • If there is tie, another chance will be given to the teams.

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 Robots 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 robot during the competition.
  • The coach should not be involved in the programming of the robot. In case of the coach interference with the robot or referee decisions during the competition, the team will risk being disqualified.
  • The robot should follow the robot specifications provided. Any deviation from the mentioned specifications will lead to disqualification.
  • Negative points will be awarded for each time the Robot moves out of the track. If the Robot goes out of the track for more than 3 times, it will be considered as disqualified.
  • Once the race begins, 5 hand touches are allowed more than 5 touches will lead to disqualification. Negative points will be awarded for every human touch which will affect the final score of the team.
  • No test practice will be allowed on the main track.
  • The Race track is subject to change before the commencement of any round.
  • The decision of the judges will be final and abiding. Argument with judges in any form will lead to the disqualification of the team right-away.

Code of Conduct: Fair Play

  • Robots that cause deliberate interference with other robots or damage to the track will be disqualified.
  • Teams that cause deliberate interference with robots or damage to the track will be disqualified.
  • It is expected that the aim of all teams is to play a fair and clean game.

Behavior:

  • Misbehaving teams and participants will 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 Organising committee is a union of robotic experts 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.
