“Exploration is the essence of the world. Never stop exploring”
Humans are meant to explore new things. Curiosity is the root cause for exploration. We don’t wonder about things. We just make it reality!!
Have you ever imagined about other planets. And thought about the presence of life in it. If ‘yes’, you are equal to scientist. Research about exploring other planets is a great challenge. Robots are built and tested on a large scale to inspect the other planet surfaces and investigate the presence of life forms in it. Here is your chance to exhibit the same to the world. So, start exploring by building robots.
“Exploration is the essence of the world. Never stop exploring”
Build a robot which can inspect on multi-terrain surfaces against the challenges in its way.
The Rover will be starting from a space shuttle and exploring its way down on the mars. The rover should be capable of exploring the surface parameters and detect the humidity content, temperature in air and the presence of water in the localised region such as a cave. The rover should detect the colour of a flower present it its way and the intensity of light available at the flower location. The rover should send all the details to the display to the space station by means of wireless communication.
Finally the rover should collect a sample of sand from the cave and bring it back to the space shuttle.
The event consists of 2 rounds.
ROUND 1:
  • The round 1 will be the semi-finals.
  • The team should be ready with the rover.
  • The teams will be given 2 trials to complete the task.
  • The task of the robot is to move over the uneven surface (which includes inclinations, slopes, rough terrains etc.) from a starting point to the ending point with a minimal amount of time and with a good stability.
  • BFS (Built from scratch) and RMK (ready-made kits) can participate. All brands of KITS can compete in the Robotz Games Categories.
  • Points will be deduced for falling down of the inclination in the arena.
  • Those bots which complete the task in the minimal amount of time will be qualified for the next round.
  • If the bot falls at a point on inclination, it should start again at a specific check points provided. The check points will be introduced during the occurrence of the event.
  • The bots can be wired or wireless controlled.
  • The rover can be autonomous too.
  • Usage of ready-made transmitter and receiver for controlling is allowed.
  • The voltage at any point should not exceed 12V. Only DC supply should be used.
  • 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.
  • Judges decision will be the final.
Venue: Regional / Zonal center near you. Students will be informed for their zonal centers.
ROUND 2:
  • Round 2 will be the final round.
  • The teams selected for finals should bring their bot which is capable of exploring an environment on mars surface which is equipped with sensors to detect the humidity, temperature in air and the presence of water in the cave. The rover should be capable of picking a sample of sand and bring it back to the starting point.
  • The rover should detect the colour of the flower present on its way and detect the intensity of light near the flower.
  • The rover should display the acquired data to the display provided outside the Mars zone. i.e A wireless data transmission should be enabled.
  • The teams should control the bot manually by means of wireless communication or autonomous function can be enabled. No wired communication is allowed.
  • The Mars zone will be of uneven surface with bumps, slopes and obstacles on its way. The rover should clear the obstacles to lead its way forward.
  • BFS (Built from scratch) and RMK (ready-made kits) can participate. All brands of KITS can compete in the Robotz Games Categories.
  • Data from the rover should be sent by means of wireless protocol communication to the computer at a distance.
  • Wifi-router will be provided on request at the competition zone.
  • The bots which has high level of accuracy in displaying the parameters of the cave, picking a sample of sand and reaching the starting point will find its victory. Sensing the colour of the flower, temperature measurement accuracy, intensity of light near the flower and humidity content in the cave will add to additional credits to you.
  • Only on-board supplies will be allowed. The potential difference at any point on the bot should not exceed 24v.
  • The cave will be transparent for controlling the robot.
  • The game will be ended after 10 minutes.
  • Autonomous robots will gain extra value.
  • 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.
  • Judges decision will be the final.
Venue: The final round will be held in Chennai.
ROUND 1:
Schematic Model of the arena: (Arena may subject to change) Download Arena


ROUND 2:
  • The rover should fit into a box of dimension 50cmx30cmx30cm.
  • A team should consist of 5 members only.
  • The participants of RobotzIndia v3.0 competition can compete with the same “Team Name”
  • The rover can extend in any direction after the competition begins.
  • The weight of the rover should not exceed 6 kg.
  • The battery for the robot should be on-board and no external source should be used.
  • The potential difference between any two points in the bot should not exceed 12v.
  • No part of the robot must damage the arena, violation of this could lead to disqualification.
  • The teams should consists of 5 members and should have a valid Id-card.
  • The rules for the final round is already stated clearly in the round 3.
  • Team should have a “Team name” (a unique name to be validated from the robotzindia.com site), “Logo” for your team name.
  • A team should have a leader or a spokesperson to interact with media, RAAIF and other audience.
  • Any kind of permanent damage to the arena / stage will not be entertained, and if done, the robot will be immediately disqualified. The participant has to compensate for the damage caused.
  • Bring cleaning equipments to clean any spills on the arena / stage.
  • Any form of changes in connections should be done after consulting to the Robotzindia co- ordinator.
  • Unfair arguments regarding the non-functionality of sensors or improper wire-less communication will not be appreciated.
  • Judges decision will be the final.
  • The sample report and logbook sample pages are available in the DOWNLOAD section of the RobotzIndia website.
