“At bottom, robotics is about us. It is the discipline of emulating our lives, of wondering how we work”
Humans fight against enemies with all struggles and battles on their way. Some of them fail. But few conquer their place. They emerge as ‘Gladiator’. Emerging technologies and advancements enables them to defend and survive better than before.
How about building a robot which can defend, survive and emerge like a warrior!
Curious about building a robot to defend the obstacles on its way!!
This is your place. How about creating “The Gladiator”?
“At bottom, robotics is about us. It is the discipline of emulating our lives, of wondering how we work”
The objective of this competition is to build a robot which can overcome the obstacles on the waytowards conquering region. The path is filled with multiple obstacles which includes multi-terrains, steps, slopes, sand, gravels, water and much more. The robot should be capable of rolling on land, roving on water and surviving impact forces on it. The robot which overcomes all the obstacles and reaches the conquering place will be the Gladiator of the event.
The event consists of 2 rounds.
Round 1 will be the semi-finals. And the second round will be the Finals.
Each team should have a multi-terrain robot capable of overcoming the obstacles. The team who survives the semi-finals will be qualifying for the Finals.
No obstacle can be skipped.
Specific time will be given to repair the bot in the arena.
The teams which comes out with top cumulative score at the end of the semi-finals will be selected for the final round.
Those teams selected for the final round will be tested for the knowledge on their robot configurations.
ROUND 1:
  • The arena for the round 1 will be filled with obstacles at a certain places. Obstacles may be sand, slopes, water bodies, gravel stones, bumps, wire meshes and pits too.
  • The bot must travel through the arena by avoiding obstacles and reach the finishing line. It should be capable of roving on water as well as rolling on land.
  • The bot should be able to function on land as well as on water.
  • Checkpoints will be placed at a certain distances of the arena.
  • Points will be awarded for completing the arena at a minimal time.
  • 2 trials will be given for the participants to complete the obstacles and to reach the end.
  • The bot can be wired or wireless in control. In case of wireless control, it should be equipped with dual frequency to overcome the clashes between opponents transmitter.
  • Minus points will be given for adjusting the robot/repairing the robot on the arena.
  • Updated LOG BOOK should be brought along with the robot at the instant of the competition which will add you credits.Improper logbook details will lead to disqualification.
Venue: Regional / Zonal center near you. Students will be informed for their zonal centers..
ROUND 2:
  • Round 2 will be the final round.
  • This will be a one-on-one event.
  • The 2 teams are required to compete with each other to conquer the region.
  • The final round will be the filled with obstacles which can be used by the team to provide destruction to opponent teams.
  • The robots will not be allowed to fight against each other. Instead, they can use the Activation regions marked on the arena to activate the obstacle to opponent teams.
  • The bot should be configured to climb on the steps, roll on steep surfaces and float/rove on the water surface.
  • The bots can be wired or wireless in control. In case of wireless control, it should be equipped with dual frequency to overcome the clashes between opponents transmitter.
  • No trial round will be given in the arena to test your robots.
  • The bot should be designed and fabricated well so as to complete the arena by overcoming the obstacles.
  • The bot which conquers the region and reaches the finishing point first will be “The Gladiator of the event”.
  • Updated LOG BOOK should be brought along with the robot at the instant of the competition which will add you credits. Improper logbook details will lead to disqualification.
Venue: The final round will be held in Chennai.

ROUND 2:
Zones in final round
Slope and Sand Zone
This zone consists of a slope which is unfinished at the end. The robot should be capable of falling down after reaching the edge of the slope. The height of the slope will be 20 to 30cm. The robot should be capable of overcoming the impact forces.
Bumps Zone
The bumps zones in filled with many obstacles such as steeps slopes, bumps.
You can enter the bump zone only by pushing the gate. The gate is enabled by a spring return mechanism. So, the robot should require some energy to push the gate so as to enter the bumps zone.
Steps Zone
The steps zone consists of an Activation region which can be used to enable the difficult path to the opponent team.
This is done by moving the box from green to red zone.
The team who places the box at the red zone first is capable of taking the easiest path. This makes the opponent team to choose only the difficult path in the zone.
Otherwise, both the robot should travel only in the difficult path in the zone.
Finally, the robot who reaches the end point first will be the “Gladiator of the Game”!
  • The weights of the bot should not exceed 8 kg.
  • Students should bring valid ID cards for each rounds, otherwise leads to dis-qualification.
  • Use of destructive devices are prohibited.
  • The bot’s dimension should be 40*30*30 cm respectively.
  • The batteries can be onboard or an external power supplies can be used.
  • Participants should bring their own charging equipments for the battery or for repairing the robot on the play or in the venue.
  • Bot must not be touched without the permission of judges, if touched there would be a penalty.
  • The potential between the battery terminals should not exceed 12v at any point of the event.
  • Judges decision will be the final in all the rounds.
