Project Competition

RoboMela includes a Robotics Project Competition on October 12-13, 2018. Robotics projects from universities and companies can take part to showcase their robots and their capabilities. Evaluation will be based on design and performance of the robots.

Robot Project Evaluation

Teams will be evaluated by a committee of experts from the field of Robotics.

  • No submission beyond deadline 9thOctober 2018 shall be accepted.
  • A team not available on the spot for project evaluation will not be evaluated later on.
  • Teams should bring a A2 size Poster about their project, which will be hanged behind their Project display. Project will be evaluated during tea breaks on both days.
  • The decision of the judges shall be final and cannot be contested.
  • RoboMela organizers reserve the right to modify any of the above stated without prior notice.

Entry Fee

Each team will submit Rs. 500 prior to registration.

Robotic Competition

There will be a Robotic Competition in RoboMela on October 12-13, 2018. The competition provides two levels for participants, Basic Level and Advanced Level

Basic Arena Layout
Basic Arena Layout

Basic Level Competition

  • The arena will consist of a rectangular area of 4’ by 8’. There will be a wall all around the arena as well as in the middle to create an enclosed path. There will be a start line as well as a black line inside the enclosed path.
  • go signal will be given by the race marshal. The robot’s time will start the moment the robot starts to move.
  • The goal is to complete the task in the shortest amount of time.
  • Once the robot starts to move, a team can only move their robot back to the starting line by first declaring a reset and then touching their robot. Please note that a reset of the robot WILL NOT reset or stop the time of the attempt.
  • The maximum time of 5 minutes will be allowed to setup the robot, followed by a maximum of 3 minutes to complete the task.


Scoring:

  • The scoring will be based on the total time taken to complete the task.
  • Colliding with any of the walls will incur a time penalty of 5s. Dragging against a wall will incur a time penalty of 10s.

Robot specifications

The specifications for the robots are as follows:
  • The robot needs to fit within the dimensions of 32cm by 32 cm by 32 cm.
  • The weight of the robot needs to be less than 20 kg.
  • The electrical power source on the robot needs to be less than 24V.
  • Internal combustion engines are not allowed to power the robot.
  • The sensing technique used to complete the path is left to the teams. It is possible to do wall following, line following, dead reckoning, using vision based sensors, etc.

Entry Fee

Each team will submit Rs. 500 prior to registration.

Prize Money

  • 1st Prize: Rs. 20,000
  • 2nd Prize: Rs. 10,000
  • Design prize: Rs. 5,000
Advanced Arena Layout
Advanced Arena Layout

Advanced Level Competition

  • The arena will consist of a square area of 8’ by 8’. There will be a wall all around the arena to create an enclosed space. The layout of the arena is given in the picture.
  • The robot will be placed in the starting area at the start. The robot will then have to go to areas A, B and C. The first area to go to will be A. The sequence between B and C will depend on the colour of the wall at D. if the colour of D is black, it should go to B and then C before returning to the start area. If the colour is white, it should go to C and then B before returning to the start area.
  • A go signal will be given by the race marshal. The robot’s time will start the moment the robot starts to move.
  • The goal is to complete the task in the shortest amount of time.
  • Once the robot starts to move, a team can only move their robot back to the starting line by first declaring a reset and then touching their robot. Please note that a reset of the robot WILL NOT reset or stop the time of the attempt.
  • A team can request an early stop if their robot is unable to complete any more of the tasks. The total elapsed time from the start till the stop request will be considered as the time for completing the task.
  • The maximum time of 5 minutes will be allowed to setup the robot, followed by a maximum of 3 minutes to complete the task.

Scoring:

  • Traversing the arena and reaching target area A will have 40 points.
  • Traversing the arena and reaching target area B will have 40 points.
  • Traversing the arena and reaching target area C will have 40 points.
  • Visiting B and C in the correct order will have 40 points
  • Returning back to the start area and stopping there will have 40 points.
  • Time to complete will be scored on the basis of 180 – total seconds taken to complete the task.
  • Total score will be the aggregate of all the scores.
  • Miscellaneous:
  • Colliding with any of the walls will incur a time penalty of 5s. Dragging against a wall will incur a time penalty of 10s.
