Robo Contest

1.Pick and Place Robot Challenges

 Interested in making a robot that can pick things up and place them somewhere else? Think that’s the only thing they’re capable of doing? Well then, think again! Pick and place robots (despite their name) can be used for much more than just simply picking and placing. We are giving you a chance to learn more about pick and place robots and their applications in SELESTA 2k19. Build yours and even compete in the competition for exciting prizes!

Team size: Maximum of four members
Registration fees:(per team)
For Indian Students: 1000/- INR

STRUCTURE OF GAME: 
Round 1
The participant has to bring a manual robot that can pick up weights from a location and place them in a different location in the arena in a specified time and drop it.
Round 2
The participant has to use his robot to transport a specific number of blocks through another route to a specific destination in a specified time period and drop it. Therefore robot should have to move from one place to another to drop the object.
Rules and Regulations:
i) A team can consist of a maximum of 4 members.
ii) Inter college teams are allowed.
iii) Both Wired and RC wireless bots are allowed.
iv) The machines you build will be first checked for size and safety.
v) The machine must not contain any combustible, corrosive, or otherwise dangerous materials for safety reasons.
vi) Power supply or any other battery sources will not be provided by the organizing committee.
vii) Robot should fit in a box of dimensions 30cmx30cmx30cm.
viii) The shape of the block or object can be in any form and the maximum size can be of the object is 8 x 8 cms.
ix) Robot should have an easily reachable emergency stop button which interrupts the power supply of the actuators. On demand of the jury or in imminent danger, a team member has to stop the robot immediately.
x) A number of rounds will depend on a number of participants.
Judgement Criteria:
1. Teams should transport the blocks in the given time so as to win the match.
2. Track for each level would be revealed just before the event takes place.
3. Teams are not allowed to test their bot on the track.

2. Line Follower Robot Challenge

Design a robot which can follow the tough straight lines in 5 minutes on the track of 4 meters and also get a chance to challenge the best bots from all over India.

Team size: Maximum of four members
Registration fees:(per team)
For Indian Students: 1000/- INR

The participants are supposed to build their own autonomous line follower robot.
The robot which completes the task fastest will be declared as the winner.

Robot
Max width: 250mm
Max Length : 250mm

POWER:
The robot must work on a battery fixed on the robot. No power cords to connect to a stationary source will be provided.
The participants must prepare for slight imperfections.

Definitions:-
Race clock:-When the robot starts off from the START tile, the timer starts to count the race time. As the robot reaches the FINISH tile, the timer stops and the recorded time value is saved.
Trials:- Every team will have 2 trial runs. Best of the two will be taken into consideration for the competition. One trial should not last more than five minutes.
Robo Zone: An area around the field will be designated as the ROBO ZONE. No one is allowed inside the game zone except for the robot handlers and the referees.
Pre-Game setup: Before starting the competition each team has PREPARATION TIME which is 10 minutes. All the preparation should be done during this time (adjusting the sensors, reprogramming the robot…etc).

One team member is elected as the robot handler. Only that team member is permitted to handle the robot during the game. All other team members must remain outside the game zone.
The robot will be placed at the START point and checked by one of the referees.
A robot may restart the run as the handlers deem necessary within the TRIAL TIME. The restart can be requested only if the robot doesn’t follow the line, has stopped on half way or has lost the directions. If the robot has reached the FINISH, the time is saved for that current TRIAL and the team cannot request another run.
At any restart, the robot must be positioned back at the start point and started by the referee.
It is not allowed to reprogram the robot or to add/remove parts on the robot during the trial but it is allowed to adjust the sensors.
The RACE CLOCK will reset to zero on every restart. The COMPETITION CLOCK and the TRIAL CLOCK will keep running during all restarts.
Only TWO restarts are allowed within trial period.
A robot must restart if: –
The robot does not start after pressing the Start Button for 30 seconds. –
The robot is touched by a human. –
The robot moves off the field. –
The referee orders to restart.
Team Members:
A team can consist of a maximum of 4 participants. Students from different educational institutions can form a team.

Fair Play:

The robot violating any of the rules described below will be disqualified from the competition or forced to restart the robot from the START point.
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 point.
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.
Behavior:
Participants who misbehave may be asked to leave the competition area and risk being disqualified from the contest.
The rules will be enforced at the discretion of the referees, officials.
Organizing Committee:
All decisions about scoring, game play and timing are made by the juries. Teams should completely respect their vote and decisions.

3. Maze Solving Robot Challenge
