INTRODUCTION:The Figure 8 module not only requires technical skills but it also allows the participants to use their creativity. In this module the winner is judged on a number of minor techniques such as the speed, design and efficiency of the robot. In this module the participants must follow the rules mentioned below and whichever team is incapable of doing so will be disqualified. However, the rest of the remaining teams will fight for their place in the final round from where one will be declared the Figure 8 champion.
3-4 team members are allowed in each team.
There are two categories:
i)Track for Lego/Logic based Robots
ii)Track for Arduino based Robots
TIME:• Course Time:
Time is measured from crossing the start line until the robot crosses the finish line.
Time shall be measured by an electronic gate system or by a judge with a stopwatch, based on the availability of equipment. In either case the recorded time shall be final.
• Race clock:
When the robot starts off from the START line the timer automatically starts to count the race time. As the robot reaches the FINISH line, the timer automatically stops and the recorded time value is saved.
TRACK:• There will be a white line in blue background and the line will be 3 cm wide.
• A robot that wanders off of the arena surface will have to start again, keeping in mind that the robot will be given 3 minutes for trial after which it will be disqualified.
• Red line is an imaginary line just to clarify that if any robot goes 20cm away from the track it would be considered out (please note that it will now be marked according to its last position on track).
• The organizing committee will make every possible attempt to ensure that there are no ‘bumps’ in the track although there may be slight deviations in height and width. Competitors must be prepared to deal with these slight imperfections.
ROBOT SPECIFICATIONS:• The robot should fix in a box of 30*30*30 cm. The bigger robots will be disqualified.
• There is no limit on the voltage of batteries.
• Only lego and logic based robots are allowed which are in a separate category.
• Bridge IC is only allowed in lego and logic based robots.
• Power Source:
The robot must be powered by dry batteries only.
The Robot cannot be powered by a stationary power source connected to the robot by a cord.
• Any robot kit or building material may be used, as long as the design and construction are primarily the original work of the team.
• Except for the battery pack, the handler shall not make any addition, removal, replacement or change to the robot during a contest. It is however permissible to make minor repairs.
• Once a robot has crossed the starting line it must remain fully autonomous with no human aid.
Code of Conduct:• Any kind of touch by a human which affects the robot direction or speed will cause a fault state and force the team to restart from the START line.
• Robots that cause deliberate interference with other robots or damage to the field will be disqualified.
• Humans that cause deliberate interference with robots or damage to the field will be disqualified.
• It is expected that the aim of all teams is to play a fair and clean game.
DECISION:• All decisions about scoring, gameplay and timing are made by the juries. Teams should completely respect their vote and decisions.
• The decisions of the organizing team regarding these rules and the conduct of the event shall be final.
• The first round the teams will be shortlisted on the basis of their individual track completion time.
• In this round only 3 consecutive retries are allowed.
• Two robots will compete against each other. Robots will start off at the same time from different checkpoints, the one that catches the other robot wins. The one which deviates from the line loses.
• The robot which will hit the other robot wins.
• There are no retries in the knockout round.
