RoboFinist 2015

Competitions

2 . Line Follower (Lego, Fischertechnik, VEX)

The robot task is to overcome the track moving along the black line drawn onto the field for the minimal time. This category is meant for the robots created of the educational contruction kits (Lego, Fischertechnik, VEX, Huna, TRIK, Robotis).

 



3 . Line - Pro

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



4 . Relay Race

During 5 minutes two robots of the same team shall drive the maximum number of laps along the line with a relay baton passing it every time in the exchange zone. The field represents white polygon with black line and crossroads.



5 . Kegelring-macro

The field in this contest is a white circle bordered with a black line. There are 8 skittles located on the ring, 4 of them are white and 4 are black. The robot should push white skittles out of the ring and keep all black skittles inside th ring in the shortest time.



7 . Air Race

Robots move over the air without touching the ground and air obstacles.  There 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 “8”-shape.



8 . 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.



9 . Lego Sumo (15 x 15 cm, 1 kg)

The contest is taking place on the ring where two robots are competing with each other. The ring is a black circle bordered with a white line. The objective of the robots participating in contest is to push its competitor out of the ring. This category is meant only for robots which construction is based on the educational construction kits (Lego, Fischertechnik, VEX, Huna, Robotis). It is prohibited to use the open metallic elements which may touch competitive robot or the ring.



10 . Micro Sumo (5 x 5 cm, 100 g)

The competition is conducted for two robots on the ring that is black circle with white border line draw on ring perimeter. The aim of the competition is to push the robot-competitor outside the ring.



12 . Remote Controlled Football 5×5

Polygon is the decreased copy of the actual football field. Simultaneously 10 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.



13 . Freestyle category (Elementary)

In this category participants are free to create robots with no limits in tasks, objectives and rules. Creators are limited only in their own imagination. The winner is selected by the count of referees in the several criteria: Relevance, Novelty, Engineering complexity, Operability, Presentation, Aesthetics. The age limit in this category is 12 years. In this year the projects on the subject about "Robots interaction" will be specially interested for referees.



14 . Freestyle category (Junior High)

In this category participants are free to create robots with no limits in tasks, objectives and rules. Creators are limited only in their own imagination. The winner is selected by the count of referees in the several criteria: Relevance, Novelty, Engineering complexity, Operability, Presentation, Aesthetics. The age limit in this category is from 12 to 15 years. In this year the projects on the subject about "Robots interaction" will be specially interested for referees.



15 . Freestyle category (High)

In this category participants are free to create robots with no limits in tasks, objectives and rules. Creators are limited only in their own imagination. The winner is selected by the count of referees in the several criteria: Relevance, Novelty, Engineering complexity, Operability, Presentation, Aesthetics. The age limit in this category is from 16 years. In this year the projects on the subject about "Robots interaction" will be specially interested for referees.



16 . RTC Cup - Seeker

In «RSSC RTC Cup» competition the robot shall pass through the obstacle course within the specified time. When passing the stand the robot shall collect special «cans», positioned on the polygon and locate them in special colour zones according to the «can» colour.

Polygon is a reconfigurable obstacle course, which consists of the typical obstacles to overcome which the mobile robot shall be designed.

Competitions are conducted in two modes: control of the robot that is visible for the operator and remote robot control using only the picture from the camera and data of the robot sensors.



17 . RTC Cup - Extremal

In «RSSC RTC Cup» competition the robot shall pass through the obstacle course within the specified time. When passing the stand the robot shall collect special «cans», positioned on the polygon and locate them in special colour zones according to the «can» colour.

Polygon is a reconfigurable obstacle course, which consists of the typical obstacles to overcome which the mobile robot shall be designed.

Competitions are conducted in two modes: control of the robot that is visible for the operator and remote robot control using only the picture from the camera and data of the robot sensors.



20 . Mini Sumo (10 x 10 cm, 500 g)

The competition is conducted for two robots on the ring that is black circle with white border line draw on ring perimeter. The aim of the competition is to push the robot-competitor outside the ring.



21 . WRO GEN II Football

Autonomous robot football save only some things from the real football.  The field consists of several green gradations and white out lines on perimeter. Two teams with two robots in each team compete. In contrast to the controlled football it is prohibited any interaction between robots and people, robots can exchange data (e.g. about ball location). However inspite of such significant differences between tis type of football and the actual football, the aim is still the same - make a goal maximum possible times.



22 . Practical Robotics Olympiad (Junior High)

At the beginning of this category all participants will receive unusual robotics tasks that shall be resolved within the specified time. Team may participate in Junior Hig category if the eldest team member age does not exceed 15 years on the September 01, 2015.

Olympiad problems of the previous year are available here.

Please note that Practical Robotics Olympiad in Junior cathegory will not be held on the Festival.



23 . Practical Robotics Olympiad (High)

At the beginning of this category all participants will receive unusual robotics tasks that shall be resolved within the specified time. Team may participate in High category if the eldest team member age does exceed 15 years on the September 01, 2015.

Olympiad problems of the previous year are available here.



25 . Narrow Line Follower (Lego, Fischertechnik, VEX)

Robot’s task in this kind of the competition is to overcome the track along the black line for the least possible time. The robot shall drive along the black line in auto mode. This category is meant for the robots created of the educational construction kits (Lego, Fischertechnik, VEX, Huna, TRIK, Robotis).



28 . Humanoid sumo

The contest is proceeding between two robots on the ring which is black circle bordered with white line. The objective of the contest is to push the opponent robot out of the ring border. This cahtegory is only for humanoid robots.
