Event Structure :


Team size : Maximum 5 participants per team.
Registration fee : Rs 300 per team



Rules

Dimensions and Fabrications:

1. The robot should always fit in a box of 750 mm x 750 mm x 1000 mm (l x b x h). The external device used to control the robot or any external tank is not included in the size constraint.

2. The robot should not exceed 60 kg, including the weight of the pneumatic source or tank. If the tank is external, its weight would be considered 1.5 times its actual weight.

3. The weight of wireless robots and robots having on-board power supplies will be counted as 6 times the actual weight of the robot

4. The weight of the remote controller and adapter will be considered.


Motion of Robot:

1. Jumping and hopping is not allowed.
2. Flying (using airfoils, helium balloons, or ornithopters) is not allowed.

Control of Robot:

1. Robot can have a wired or wireless control.
2. Off-board power supplies area
3. If the machine is wired, then the wire should remain slack under all circumstances during the competition. All the wires coming out of the machine should be stacked as a single unit. The wires should be properly insulated. The minimum length of wire should be 5 meters.
4. In the case of wireless control, the case of frequency interference with other teams will not be considered for rematch or for results.
5. The control wires should be drawn 1 meter above the ground.

Battery and Power:
1. The machine can be powered electrically Use of an IC engine in any form is not allowed. On board batteries must be sealed, immobilized-electrolyte types (such as gel cells, lithium, NiCad, NiMH, or dry cells).
2. The electric voltage between 2 points anywhere in the machine should not be more than 36 V DC at any point of time. If a team is using AC voltage in any of its parts, then the voltage should not exceed 36 V AC at any point of time as well.
3. All efforts must be made to protect battery terminals from a direct short and prevent a battery fire. Failure to do so will cause direct disqualification.
4. Use of damaged, non-leak-proof batteries may lead to disqualification.
5. Special care should be taken to protect the on-board batteries.

Hydraulics:

1. A robot can use non-inflammable liquid to actuate hydraulic devices.
2. All hydraulic components on-board a robot must be securely mounted.
3. Special care must be taken while mounting the pump, accumulator, and armor to ensure that if ruptured, direct fluid streams will not escape the robot.
4. Whole hydraulic systems should be leaked. The maximum allowed pressure is 8 bars.
5. The participant must be able to indicate the used pressure with an integrated or temporarily fitted pressure gauge.

Pneumatics:

1. A robot can use pressurized non-inflammable gases to actuate pneumatic the maximum allowed outlet pressure is 8 bars. The storage tank and pressure regulators used by the teams need to be certified. Teams using pneumatics are required to produce the safety and security letters at the registration desk at the venue. Failing to do so will lead to direct disqualification.
2. Participants must be able to indicate the used pressure with an integrated or temporarily fitted pressure gauge. Also, there should be provision to check the cylinder pressure on the bot.
3. You must have a safe way of refilling the system and determining the on-board All pneumatic components on board a robot must be securely mounted. Care must be taken while mounting the pressure vessel and armour to ensure that if ruptured, it will not escape the robot. Failing to do so will lead to direct disqualification.

Weapons:

Robots can have any kind of cutters, flippers, saws, lifting devices, spinning hammers, etc. as weapons. Exceptions and Limitations for Weapons
1. Liquid projectiles.
2. Any kind of inflammable liquid 3. Flame-based weapons
4. Any kind of explosive or intentionally ignited solid or potentially ignitable solid
5. Nets, tape, glue, chains, or any other method of entanglement
6. high-power magnets or electromagnets.
7. Radio jamming, lasers, tesla coils, or any other high-voltage devices.
8. Tethered or un-tethered projectiles
9. Spinning weapons which do not come into contact with the arena at any point of time are allowed. In any case, the arena should not be damaged by any bot.

Safety Rules:

1. Special care should be taken to protect the on-board batteries and pneumatics, robot without proper protection will not be allowed to compete.
2. Robots must be activated in the arena or with the expressed consent of the event coordinators.
3. All weapons must have a safety cover on any sharp edges. 4. All participants build and operate robots at their own risk. Please take care to not hurt yourself or others when building, testing, and competing. Organizers will not be responsible for any injuries to operators or team members.
5. In the event of any disputes, the decision of the organizers and the judges will be final and binding to all.
