9. The Journey (Junior)

"The Journey" is a new complex type of contest combining several common tasks. Robot should do these tasks one by one without stops and pauses. Tems age of the eldest participant of which is not grather than 12 years in the year when contest taking place may take a part in the Junior category. In this category of the contest robot will have to go through the line with hard block on it (robot should go round this block), labyrinth, line with hill after what kick out all the skittles from the ring in the Kegelring task. All these tasks must be done in three minutes.

10. The Journey (High)

"The Journey" is a new complex type of contest combining several common tasks. Robot should do these tasks one by one without stops and pauses. In the High category of the contest robot will have to go through the line with moving obstacle on it (robot should go round this obstacle and should not touch it), labyrinth, line with invertion after what kick out all but one the skittles from the ring in the Kegelring task. This skittle which robot should keep into the ring must be returned to the start - robot have to do all the tasks again! All these tasks must be done in five minutes.

14. Corridor Rally

The track for robot movement is a wavy corridor. In rally four-wheel cars take part with rear- or front-wheel drive and with steering front wheel. The competition itself consists of two stages. At the first stage the robot shall pass through the track from start to finish touching the wall the least possible number of times. At the second stage robots already participate by pairs. Robot wins if it reaches the finish first

15. Line - Pro

The contest is extention of the “Line Follower”, the only difference consisting in the continuous black line is replaced with a line of uniform objects. The robot’s objective is the same: get from the start to the finish as soon as possible.

16. Remote Controlled Football 4×4

Polygon is the decreased copy of the actual football field. Simultaneously 8 robots compete on it and these robots are controlled by the same number of participants. The team task is to make a goal maximum possible times in the competitor’s goals.

17. RoboCup Junior Soccer Lightweight Secondary

2-on-2 teams of autonomous mobile robots play in a highly dynamic environment, tracking a special light-emitting ball in an enclosed, landmarked field. It is necessary to attach a demonstration video of the robot's operability and compliance to the requirements specified in the regulations.

18. RoboCup Rescue Line

The land is simply too dangerous for humans to reach the victims. Your team has been given a difficult task. The robot must be able to carry out the rescue mission in a fully autonomous mode with no human assistance. The robot must be durable and intelligent enough to navigate through treacherous terrain with hills, uneven land and rubble without getting stuck. When the robot finally finds the victims, it has to gently and carefully transport the victims to the safe evacuation point where humans can take over the rescue. After the victim rescue, the robot should be able to find its way out of the dangerous area. It is necessary to attach a demonstration video of the robot's operability and compliance to the requirements specified in the regulations.

21. Humanoid Sprint

The field is a corridor through which the humanoid robot shall pass for the least possible time. The robot in this type of competition is a two-legged walking humanoid capable of moving its center of mass in order to maintain balance while walking.

22. Air Race

Robots move over the air without touching the ground and air obstacles. There are two columns on the polygon around which the robot shall fly maximum possible times. The task is complicated because the path along which the robot shall fly around the obstacles shall have figure eight shape.
It is necessary to attach a video demonstration of the robot's operability and compliance to the requirements specified in the regulations. It is necessary to attach a demonstration video of the robot's operability and compliance to the requirements specified in the regulations.

27. RTC Cup: Seeker

In «RTC Cup» Challenge the robot shall pass through the proving ground within the specified time. The proving ground is a reconfigurable obstacle course, a maze, made of cells. The maze made to resemble different indoor and outdoor terrains and obstacles, for search and rescue scenario.
