About The Event

TITLE : BEST OUT OF WASTE

Category I: 4th GRADE to 6th GRADE

PROBLEM STATEMENT:

To make a project of automated or non-automated robot using organic and inorganic e-waste materials which can help students to see the value of wastes and promote recycling.

 BOT SPECIFICATIONS:

  •  Any bots using waste / recycling materials.
  • It can be automated / non-automated type.
  • Static/Working model / Robots.

 JUDGEMENT CRITERIA

 The judgement is based on

  •  Creativity
  • Material Used
  • Real-time applications

 

AEROMODELLING COMPETITION- On The Spot (Entry from 4th Grade - 12th Grade)

You will be given materials on the spot and training to make a flight, with that flight model we will conduct the competition.(Range and Endurance). 

 

TITLE : LINE FOLLOWER AND OBSTACLE SENSING AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS

Category II: 7th GRADE to 12th GRADE

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Devise an autonomous vehicle capable of navigating efficiently through guided black lines on a white floor and stop when an obstacle is encountered in its path. The contestants will be judged on the basis of the time of completion of path and also on accuracy. There will be few challenges given in the case of a tie.

A team can consist of max of 2 members.

ARENA SPECIFICATIONS

The arena will consist of a black path on a white floor. The black lines will be 3cm thick, free from breakages for ease of navigation.

The arena size will be 3m x 2m. The entire arena will be situated in a uniformly lit room to minimize ambient light. The arena might consist of smooth curves, U-turns and also sharp corners.

BOT SPECIFICATIONS:

The robot must be able to fit inside a box with dimensions of 30 cm X 30 cm X 20 cm and weigh less than 3 kg.
 

The robot should follow the line using line following algorithms only.

The external power supply is not included in the size constraint. However, in case of onboard power supply, the machine along with the power supply should fit in the above mentioned dimension box and must together weigh as mentioned above.
 The machine must be fully autonomous. i.e., no manual control

JUDGMENT CRITERIA:

In preliminary stages, teams would be shortlisted on the basis of their average speeds (basically time of completion being the parameter to judge). And in case of a tie, challenges will be given on the spot to competitors.
 
Once the robot is put on the start line, further interference with the bot or in the path by any means will be penalized.
In first round, if the bot is unable to reach any Obstacle then the respective team will be disqualified.
 
 
A robot is deemed to have crossed the line when the rearmost wheel of the bot comes in contact with the finishing line.
 

If the team members wish to touch the robot after it has started they will be penalized accordingly, but they are not allowed to lift the robot from the floor.

The teams will get some specific time before the start of the competition for technical inspection and test runs. Bots are allowed to follow the path with line follower algorithms only.

No components will be provided by the organizers.

The machine should be fully autonomous, i.e. no manual control is allowed. Going against this rule may lead to disqualification.

In case of any dispute, judges’ decision will be considered final and binding on all JUDGING CRITERIA.

SCORING:

Reaching an Obstacle results in addition of 100 points in teams’ score. 

  • Reaching the finish line results in addition of 200 points in teams’ score.
  • Every time, touching the bot in while it is travelling the path, will result in a penalty of 50 points.
  • Every time, deviation of bot from the line path would result in a penalty of 30 points.
  • Team with highest score will win the competition.
  • Any unfair means used during competition may lead to disqualification
  • The teams that are able to reach at least one Obstacle will be considered for judgement.
