Robo Wars

Entry Fees: Rs.200

Max. No. of the participants: 4

About the event:
Design and build a robot which is capable of fighting other robots and defending itself.

Criteria for Victory:
1. A robot is declared victorious if its opponent is immobilized.
2. A robot will be declared immobile if it cannot display linear motion of at least one inch in a timed period of 30 seconds then the round will be stopped and time will be given for repairing.
3. A robot that is deemed unsafe by the judges after the match has begun will be disqualified and therefore declared the loser. The match will be immediately halted and the opponent will be awarded a win.
4. Robots cannot win by pinning or lifting their opponents. Organizers will allow pinning or lifting for a maximum of 20 seconds per pin/lift then the attacker robot will be instructed to release the opponent. If, after being instructed to do so, the attacker is able to release but does not, their robot may be disqualified. If two or more robots become entangled or a crushing or gripping weapon is employed and becomes trapped within another robot, then the competitors should make the timekeeper aware, the fight should be stopped and the robots separated by the safest means.

Scoring
Hit ---> 1pt.
Falling in pit ---> 5pt
Hammer ---> 3pt
Rotating Platform ---> 3pt.

Certificate of excellence will be given to all winners. Certificate of participation will be given to all the teams who qualify the first round of the competition. The teams which get disqualified due to disobeying any of the competition rules will not be considered for the certificate.

Specifications:
I. Dimensions and Fabrications
1) The robot should fit within a box of dimensions 50*50*50 cm (maximum size).The external device used to control the machine such as remote control box or DC converter is not included in the size constraint.
2) The robot should not weigh more than 14 Kg for small bot category and 25 Kg for larger bot category.
3) Both Wireless and Wired robots are allowed.
4) Use of ready-made toys are NOT ALLOWED, but one CAN USE the ready-made circuits.
5) Chemicals, compressed gases and rockets, fuels, combustion power methods, etc. are STRICTLY PROHIBITED. However, commercial batteries like dry cells and lead acid can be used.

II. Battery and Power
1) The robot must be powered electrically only. Use of an IC engine in any form is not allowed. On board, batteries must be sealed, immobilized-electrolyte types (such as gel cells, lithium, NiCad, NiMH, or dry cells).
2) The electric voltage between 2 points anywhere in the robot shouldn’t be more than 24 V DC at any point of time.
3) All efforts must be made to protect battery terminals from a direct short and causing a battery fire. Failure to do so will cause direct disqualification.
4) Use of damaged, non-leak proof batteries may lead to disqualification.
5) Special care should be taken to protect the on-board batteries.
6) Change of batteries will be allowed during the match.
7) Use of heavy equipment like compressors are banned.

Safety Rules
“Compliance with all event rules is mandatory. It is expected that competitors stay within the rules and procedures of their own accord and do not require constant policing.”

1) The robot you build would be first checked for size and safety.
2) The robot shouldn’t cause electrical power breakdown.
3) The robot must not contain any combustible, corrosive, or otherwise dangerous materials.
4) No explosive, compressive or expansive, either internal or external is permitted.

Motor Specification
1) Johnson motor is allowed.
2) Square gear motor is allowed.
3) Any other motor used should be verified/acknowledged to the event head before the event.

“ANY ROBOT WHOSE STRATEGY OR OPERATION IS CONSIDERED DANGEROUS CAN BE DISQUALIFIED BY THE JUDGES AT THEIR DISCRETION. DECISION TAKEN BY THE EVENT HEAD WILL BE CONSIDERED AS FINAL DECISION AND NO CHANGES WILL BE MADE.”
