Design and construct a remote-controlled robot capable of fighting a tournament against another robot.
WEIGHT CATEGORY : 30 Kgs/66.1387pounds
- There will be no restrictions on the dimensions of the bot.
- The weight of the machine should not exceed 66.1387 pounds/30kgs.minor tolerances of upto 5% maybe allowed.
- Robots operating on pneumatic or hydraulic mechanisms are not allowed.
All robots must have easily visible and controlled mobility in order to compete. Methods of mobility include:
- Rolling (wheels, tracks or the whole robot).
- Manually operated jumping and hopping is allowed. However, the maximum height of any part of the machine should notexceed 3ft during any stage of its jumping/hopping and any damage caused due to this mechanism is solely the responsibility of the team.
- Non-wheeled: non-wheeled robots have no rolling elements in contact with the floor and no continuous rolling or cam operated motion in contact with the floor, either directly or via a linkage, but are not true walkers as defined below. Motion is "continuous" if continuous operation of the drive motor(s) produces continuous motion of the robot. Linear-actuated legs and novel non-wheeled drive systems are also allowed under this category.
- Flying (using airfoil, helium balloons, ornithopters, etc.) is not allowed.
- Use of IC Engines not allowed.
- The war robot maybe wired or wireless.
Bot Handling Requirements
- The robot must be controlled only through a wired/wireless, while all power supply may or may not be on board.
- Control must be exhibited over all of its functions and positions. Although autonomous functions within the bot are acceptable, the controller must be able to remotely disable or override these functions at any time. Note that any damage due to this function is a responsibility of the team, and there must compulsorily be a manual emergency stop function that can be controlled from the controller to manually override this autonomous function in case of emergency.
- Remote control systems from toys may be used. Remote control systems available in the market may also be used, while nonstandard or self-made remote-control systems can be used only after approval from the organizers.
Battery and Power
- 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).
- The electric voltage between any 2 points on the machine should not exceed 36V DC at any point of time. Participants will have to bring their own converters for standard power supply according to Indian standards.
- Participants must protect the battery terminals from a direct short and causing a battery fire, failure to do so will cause direct disqualification.
- Use of damaged, non-leak proof batteries may lead to disqualification.
- 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.
- The teams are suggested to have at least one extra battery ready and charged up during competition so that on advancing to the next level, they won’t have to wait or suffer due to uncharged battery.
- Robots can have any kind of cutters, flippers, saws, lifting devices, spinning hammers etc. These weapons are not allowed
- Liquid projectiles (Foam, liquefied gases)
- Any kinds of inflammable liquids
- Weapons causing invisible damage (Electrical weapons, RF jamming weapons and others)
- Spinning weapons must come to a full stop within 60 seconds of the power being removed using a self-contained braking system
Competiton Rules and Specifications
- Any team can participate in Robowars,Srijan 2019 . A team may consist of maximum of 6 participants . These participants can be from the same or different institutes and they should be able to produce their College ID cards on the day of the event.
- Participants or teams will have to register online for the event from www.srijanju.in and onspot registrations will also be available at the desk and but teams are suggested to register online prior to the event day to avoid last minute issues
- There is no registration or participation fee for the event.
- Match Duration and Type
Matches will consist of 5 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 5 minute fight of 2 rounds with point system. After 2 rounds the team with the maximum points will be declared the winner. All Matches will be 1vs1 Knockout Tournament leading to semi-finals and finals.
Criteria for victory
- A robot is declared victorious if its opponent is immobilized.
- A robot will be declared immobile if it cannot display linear motion of at least one inch in a timed period of 10 econds. A bot with one side of its drive train disabled will not be counted out if it can demonstrate some degree of controlled movement. In case both the robots remain mobile after the end of the round, the winner will be decided subjectively.
- A robot that is deemed unsafe by the judges after the match has begun will be immediately halted.
- Points will be given on the basis of aggression, damage, control and strategy.
- Aggression: Aggression is judged by the frequency, severity, boldness and effectiveness of attacks deliberately initiated by the robot against its opponent.
- Control: Control is judged in terms of the ability to attack an opponent at its weakest point, using weapons in the most effective way, and minimizing the damage caused by the opponent.
- Damage: Through deliberate action, a robot either directly or indirectly reduces the functionality, effectiveness or defensibility of an opponent. Damage is not considered relevant if a robot inadvertently harms itself.
- Strategy: The robot exhibits a combat plan that exploits the robot's strengths against the weaknesses of its opponent. Strategy is also defined as a robot exhibiting a deliberate defense plan that guards its weaknesses against the strengths of the opponent.
Event Specific Terminology
- Disabled: A robot is not functioning correctly due to either an Internal malfunction, or contact with the opposing robot or Arena Hazard.
- Immobilized: In the judges’ opinion, a robot is not responsive for a specified period of time.
- Knockout: Occurs when the attack or deliberate actions of one robot causes its opponent to become immobilized.
- Lifting: Occurs when one robot controls an opponent's translational motion by lifting the drive mechanism of the opponent off of the Arena floor.
- Pinning: Occurs when one robot, through sheer force, holds an opponent stationary in order to immobilize it.
- Non-Responsive: In the judges’ opinion, the robot cannot display some kind of controlled translational movement along the arena floor.
- Restart: Occurs after a fault or a timeout has been declared and the competing robots are ready to continue.
- Stuck: A robot is hung-up in a part of the arena, an arena hazard or an opponent, such that it is effectively non-responsive.
- Tap-Out: Occurs when a robot's operators decide that they no longer want to continue the match and concede the win to the opposing team.
- Technical Knockout: Occurs when a robotwins due to immobilization of its opponent even though, in the judges' opinion, no action of the winning robot caused the opponent's immobilization.
- Timeout: A temporary halting of a match. Timeouts are usually called to separate robots, butcan be called for other reasons as well.
- The arena is closed on all sides for safety purposes. It’ll have openings in the opposite edges for putting the bot inside.
- Dimensions of the arena would be 12ft x 12ft.
- The arena will be made of iron cage and wire-mesh and base plate will be of mild steel.
