ROBO WAR CHALLENGE

Design and construct a remote-controlled robot capable of fighting a tournament against another robot(s).


Design Specifications.

Specifications:

  1. There will be no restrictions on the dimensions of the bot(s).
  2. The weight of the machine should not exceed 15 Kgs (33.07 Lbs.), which includes the weight of any pneumatic source/tank. All pneumatic tanks/source and batteries should be on board. Only the weight of the remote controller will not be counted.
  3. Robots with pneumatic or hydraulic mechanisms or electric lifters are allowed.
  4. Only active weapon bots are allowed.
  5. Manually operated jumping and hopping are allowed. However, the maximum height of any part of the machine should not exceed 6ft during any stage of its jumping/hopping and any damage caused due to this mechanism is solely the responsibility of the team.
Battery and Power:
  1. The machine must be powered electrically. 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 any 2 points on the machine should not exceed 24V DC at any point in time. Participants will have to bring their own converters for standard power supply Participants must protect the battery terminals from a direct short and causing a battery fire, failure to do so will cause direct disqualification.
  3. Use of damaged, non-leak proof batteries may lead to disqualification.
  4. Special care should be taken to protect the on board batteries. If the judges find that the battery is insufficiently protected, the team will be disqualified immediately.
  5. Change of battery will not be allowed during the match.
  6. Only bots with on-board batteries will be allowed.
Weapon Systems:

Robots can have any kind of magnetic weapons, cutters, flippers, saws, lifting devices, spinning hammers etc. (if they qualify the criteria mentioned below) as weapons.

Following weapons cannot be used:
  1. Liquid projectiles (Foam, liquefied gases).
  2. Any kinds of inflammable liquids.
Match Duration:

Matches will consist of 3 minutes of active fight time exclusive of any time-outs. Hence, it is not binding but advisable to keep battery capacity, power usage and machine defences such that they can sustain a 3- minute fight.

Arena Specification:

The out-to-out dimension of the arena will be 15ft x 15ft x 1ft (l x b x h)*. As well as arena will be function able.*these figures/parameters are subject to change.

Judging Criteria:

Each competitor will be assessed on following judging criteria listed below:

  1. The bot should be made on prescribed criteria that are given by the organizer.
  2. A robot is declared victorious if its opponent is immobilized.
    • A robot will be declared immobile if it cannot display the linear motion of at least one inch in a time period of 10 seconds .
    • 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.
    • If a robot is thrown out of the arena the match will be stopped immediately, and the robot inside the arena will automatically be declared as the winner.
    • If a bot gets stuck inside the arena due to the deformity of the arena itself. The timer will be stopped and the bot will be released by the safest means.
    • Points will be given on the basis of aggression, damage and control.
  3. The judge's decision will be final; no requested from participant will be entertained.
