PROBLEM STATEMENT• The objective is to design and implement two bots, one manual and the other autonomous.• The autonomous bot should function as a shadow to the manual bot i.e. it follows the manual bot on any given track.
GAMEPLAY• Competition consists of two rounds – a)Preliminary round b)Final round.• The time taken to complete the track will be taken as the criteria for qualification in both the rounds.• A simple geometric track will be there for the prelim round and for the finals the track will contain radial turns.• The arena of both the rounds will be disclosed on the day of the competition.
Specifications• None of the bots should not exceed the dimension 25cm x 25cm x 25cm (l x b x h) at any point during the match. External device used for control are not included in the size constraint.• Adapters and the remote controller will not be included in this constraint.• The manual Bot can be wireless or wired.• In case of wired bot, wires should be stacked into a single unit and should be slack at every moment of the competition.• All the robots with wireless control should be able to change frequencies (if required) or coded channels to prevent any radio conflicts , it may be changed before the start of the race to avoid frequency interference with other team.
Power Supply1. The bot must run on DC power supply. One is although allowed to use AC to DC adapters and a 220 Volt AC power source will be available on the site of competition .The voltage b/w any two points must not exceed 12 volts at any given point of time.2. The machine can be powered electrically only. Use of an IC engine in any form is not allowed.
General Rules• Each team should be having maximum 3 members. Students of different institutions are allowed to constitute a team.• The organizers reserve the right to change any rule at any time as they deem fit.• Change in rules if any will highlighted on the website and notified to the registered teams.• Violation of any rule may lead to disqualification.
PRIZE MONEY• A sum of INR 20,000 has been kept as the prize money. “Winner takes All”.
