SRIJAN 2019 - Rules for Robo race (Round 2)


Task :

Design a robot either wired or wireless within the specified dimensions that can operated manually and can travel through all turns of the track. The robot that will complete the specified task in least time will be the winner.

Think your robot can overcome any obstacle-big or small in the least of time.

ROBOT SPECIFICATIONS:

1) The maximum dimension of the robot can be 30 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm (l x b x h).

2) The robot may be wired or wireless.

3) The length of the wire (for wired bots) should be long enough to cover the whole track and wire should remain slack during the complete run.

4) Maximum weight must not exceed 3 kg.

5) The participants will be provided with 220 Volts, 50Hz standard AC supply. Participants will have to themselves arrange for adaptor or batteries.

6) The machine must not be made from Lego parts, or any ready-made kit, if we find such machine it will be disqualified.

BATTERIES & POWER:

1. The machine must be powered electrically only. Use of IC engine is not allowed.

2. Batteries must be sealed, immobilized electrolyte type (gel cell, lithium, NiCad, or dry cells).

3. The electric voltage anywhere in the machine should not be more then 12V DC at any point of time.

GENERAL RULES:

1) This is racing event so fastest and most balanced robot will win.

2) Robot should be as per the given specifications.

3) Each team can have maximum three members. Students from different institutes can form a team.

5) The robot should not damage the arena.

6) No test practice will be allowed on the arena.

7) The robot must not leave behind any of its parts during the run; else it will result in disqualification.

8) Unethical behavior could lead to disqualification. Faculty co-ordinators have all the rights to take final decision for any matter during the event.

3) The design and size of the track may vary from that shown in the pictures.

4) Arena will consist of Switch Bridge, speed breakers, marble pit, slippery path, rotating ting disc, curve ramp down, seesaw etc.

GAME RULE:

1) The competition is based on time trail system. There will a qualifying round for each team.

2) The top team from qualifying round makes it to the final round on basis of time trials.

3) Wires should remain slack during the course of the run. Pulling the wire to aid the robot in traversing may lead to disqualification.

7) The robot will be judged on basis of (in priority):-

8) Machine must not contain any readymade kits, pneumatic &hydraulic systems, IC engines.

9) Decision about your robot will be taken by the organizers.
