To build a pair of wired/wireless robots that can setup Air Base for strengthening our defences.
There is an emergency situation and the Air Force is asked to create a temporary Air Base to help Army with their operations. Your team in the Air Force, is tasked to develop two robots (called Dare Bot and Savot Bot).
The Dare Bot and Savot Bot are small, flexible manageable robotic machines that can be used to lift and move prefabricated blocks at the Air Base Setup Site.
Both the bots would have to carry out myriad of tasks on the Air Base site ranging from identifying different prefabricated construction blocks to picking/ dropping or pushing/dragging these blocks and finally assembling them to become meaningful structures like Hangar, Control Tower, Radar Tower, Runway and Fuel Unit. All these tasks would involve different kinds of mechanisms and it is best to select specific mechanisms for each of the bots.
Dare Bot is the first robot that has been tasked to ensure that it grips, pulls or drag and drops various material used in Air Base Setup. The base of robot should not exceed the 23 cm X 23 cm.
Savot Bot is the second robot that has been tasked to ensure that it grips, pushes and drops the material used in Air Base Setup. The base of robot should not exceed the 23 cm x 23 cm.
Note: The above mechanisms are mostly suggestive, you can choose to create a design that you deem fit. However, the robot should be able to fit inside the verification prop with length and width of 23 cm X 23 cm X 6.5 cm.
Note: Refer the arena image for the initial positions of blocks
Construction of Hangar: Hangar unit is a critical building where planes are parked. For this, base levels need to be built and covered with a roof. Any robot can construct this structure. Structure should be designed inside the designated area including roof of the Hangar. For complete design of hangar please see below.
Construction of Control Tower: A control tower is a building at an airport from which instructions are given to aircraft when they are taking off or landing. For this, three levels need to be built. Any robot can construct this structure. Structure should be designed (Part in contact with ground i.e. Caster wheels) inside the designated area. For complete design of control tower please see below.
Construction of Radar Tower: Radar towers are used for detection of unidentified flying elements approaching our territory. For this, two levels need to be built. Any robot can construct this structure. Structure should be designed (Part in contact with ground) inside the designated area. For complete design of Radar tower please see below.
Construction of Fuel Unit: Any robot can construct the Fuel Unit. This structure is for fulfilling the fuel needs of the fleet. This is a single storey structure. For complete design of Fuel Unit please see below.
Construction of a Runway: A runway is a defined rectangular area on a land aerodrome prepared for the landing and takeoff of aircraft. Any robot can construct the Runway. For this, one level need to be built. For complete design of Runway. Please see below.
|Successfully dragged the base chamber of Control Tower from the Material collection area to designated location||30|
|Successfully able to pick and place Mapping unit into the base chamber of Control tower||150|
|Successfully placed ATC antenna on the Mapping unit.
Note: ATC antenna is only placed when mapping unit is placed into the base chamber of control tower.
|Successfully placed Radar base Tower in designated location||100|
|Successfully placed Radar antenna on Radar base Tower||130|
|Successfully able to pick and place fuel unit to designated location||70|
|Successfully constructed the level 1 of Hangar (Note: 60 for each Piece) and block should be placed in horizontal direction||120|
|Successfully able to pick and construct the roof of the hangar on the base of the hangar.
Note: The distance between two blocks doesn’t matter
|Successfully able to pick and construct the Runway (Note: 30 For each piece)||150|
Note: Picking of prop will only be considered, if the prop will be completely detached from the ground.
As you build and program, keep in mind that our suppliers, mentors, and volunteers try very hard to make all arena and props as per the specifications mentioned, but you should always expect some variability (i.e. tolerance of 5%) due to machine/manual process and transportation. Consider this as a warning and incorporate them into your robot design. The variabilities can be defined as:
1. Use Caster wheels while building your Robot to avoid bumps in Arena.
2. Cover your sensors from surrounding light.
Brains: There is no limitation on the number of brains used per robot. Choose from the Avishkaar-manufactured ones shown here.
Motors: There is no limitation on the number of motors used per robot. Choose among the Avishkaar-manufactured ones shown here. No other motors are allowed.
- EXAMPLE: When a mission is required to be achieved through a specific method, but is achieved by some other method, it is marked scoreless. Please don’t try to show video to the referees.
- EXAMPLE: If the robot puts Model A into a scoring condition by destroying Model B, the Model B mission is marked scoreless.
- EXAMPLE: If the robot is required to drive over something in the middle of the match, the referee will mark the score for that when it happens, since no lingering evidence will be visible.
Note: The design shown in image is a graphical image and no design reference must be drawn from this. For your design, please refer to the exact size details of the verification prop.
Note: Bot should sit comfortably on the floor while verification. Any part of the bot in air would be liable for rejection.
