Competitions

2 . Line Follower: Educational Sets

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 only for the robots created of the educational contruction kits (Lego, Fischertechnik, VEX, Huna, TRIK, Robotis).



3 . Narrow Line Follower

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. The distinctive feature of this contest is that line has smaller width. There is no restrictions to materials robot may be made of.

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). 



13 . 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. 



16 . 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.



17 . 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.

21 . 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, 2016.

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.



22 . 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, 2016.

23 . RTC Cup: Seeker 2.0

In «RTC Cup Mini» 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. For each cell robot gain points, the number of points depend on difficulty of the task, located in the cell. 

In addition, when passing the proving ground the robot shall collect special «cans», and deliver them in special colour zones according to the «can» colour, to gain more points. 

Robot can demonstrate some autonomy in the area with the black line on the white field (for this task points are doubled, compared to nonautonomic tasks).

"Seeker" category: remote robot control that is visible for the operator. There is an age limitation: under 16 years.

Robot can be built of any hardware components, nonhazardous for the wider public.

The competition includes 2 attempts (rounds). 

The best of two attempts would be taken into account.

25 . RoboCupJunior Soccer (Light Weight League)

In the RoboCupJunior soccer challenge, teams of two autonomous mobile robots compete against another team in matches. They must look for an infrared-light-emitting ball, trying to score into a color-coded goal in a special field built in a way that resembles the actual field for human soccer. Robots are required to have full autonomy from humans, technical designs, and ingenious programming by their developers.

Only teams of students up through age 19 may take a part in the Junior League of RoboCup contest. 

Please note that requrements for robots participating in Light Weight League located in Appendix B to the main rules text.
