    Bot Specifications

  • The robot has to be autonomous and should not be readymade (no external control mechanisms are allowed).
  • The robot may be altered during the competition as long as it is still compliant to the rules. All physical change of the robot must be reported to the championship staff for approval. Alteration of software does not need to be reported.
  • The dimensions of Robot should not exceed 30 X 30cm.
  • The robots mass must not exceed 2.5 kg.
  • The robot must not scratch or in any other way alter the arena (such as leave sticky film, paint or similar things).

  • Example software: Assembly Language, C, some form of BASIC or Visual Basic. Scoring.
  • RACE TIME is the time considered for tracing the route from START to FINISH. RACE TIME is calculated automatically by the on-field optical sensors that detect the robots movement. The robot that will have the fastest run will win the competition.
