Terra technica'17 is back with its dais ready for young and ardent minds to exhibit their innovation in designing and to prove their mettle in the RIDE under technology.
Let's not waste any more time in awaiting the opportunity, just get busy in availing it. Enter the field of robo-mech war, with your bots ready to collect their assigned pucks and leave the place with excitement of triumph over opponents.
Come … conquer & savour victory!!
Two Remote Controlled robots compete. 10 pucks of each assigned colour are distributed randomly on the Arena. The aim is to collect all pucks of the assigned colour and carry them to the own home base.
Maximum participants per team = 2
Max Size of robot can be 30 x 30 CM.
Robot must not physically separate into pieces.
Participants are allowed to buy robotic gripper or build their own(preferred).
Robot can be controlled wirelessly or by wire.
In case of wireless remote, Participants can use any
wireless technology(Zigbee, bluetooth, Wi-Fi, RF, IR
etc.) for remote control. But we shall not be
responsible for any interference in your wireless
Bots should not use more than 12V power supply and only
one supply for whole system. You cannot use parallel
batteries for generating higher power.
No physical intervention in the arena would be tolerated.
This would lead to direct disqualification.
Any kind of weapon that are intentionally added to harm
the opponent would not be accepted.
Judge’s decision at any point would be final.
Organisers are bound to disqualify any team breaking the
A puck is counted as collected, if all the following conditions are met:
Its entire body is located unmoved within any of the home bases for
more than 1 second
It is touching the floor
It is outside the convex shape of the robot and not covered by any part
of a robot
The judge immediately removes a collected puck.
It counts for the robot,
which is assigned to the colour of the particular home base as follows:
If the colour of the puck is equal to the colour of the home base, the
be increased by 1.
If the colour of the puck is not equal to the colour of the home base,
will be decreased by 1.
Mode of Tournament and Matches
The matches will be played under traditional knockout
If both robots have the same score, the
robot which firstly gains the lead during the match (first
robot to reach a score of 1)
wins the game and advances to the next round. If no robot
manages to collect a puck
within the entire game, no robot advances to the next
Two 30 cm x 30 cm big home bases ,red and blue are positioned in opposing corners of the field. The remaining part of the field is white and the neutral zone. Max weight of bot is 10 Kg (tolerance = 0.5 Kg)
