To build two Manual bots that can carry out the task of transporting the waste generated in a factory to different collection zones.
Tonnes of industrial waste is generated each year that needs to be treated properly and not just dumped into landfills or oceans. Such waste must be collected at proper centres or designated places for further processing and treatment.
Robots are tasked with collection/pick-up/dragging of the props to the two collection zones and create a pre-defined structure. Props are 3D printed cubes that can be stacked to form a structure.
|Name of the bot||Start Area||Maximum Size||Task|
|Bot 1 - Name of Bot needs to be decided by the participants||Start Area No. 1||Length: (9.5 Inches Width: 9.5 Inches) Height: No limit||Bot 1 needs to help bot 2 while loading / unloading props. Bot 1 also needs to perform stacking at zone 1 and zone 2 in the arena|
|Bot 2 - Name of Bot needs to be decided by the participants||Start Area No. 2||Length: (9.5 Inches Width: 9.5 Inches) Height: No limit||Bot 2 needs to carry the props to various zones in the arena|
Start Area 1 refers to the area where the first bot would be placed at the start of the arena run and Start Area 2 refers to the area where the second bot would be placed at the start of their arena run.
Start Area 1
Start Area 2
Collection area is that area on the arena where all the props would be kept before starting the run.
The Track refers to the area where the bots need to move and carry the props from one zone to another.
These are the identified areas where the required stacks need to be built. Zone 1 is that area on the arena where bot 1 needs to build Stack 1. Zone 2 is that area on the arena where bot 1 needs to build Stack 2.
|Arena Length :||123 Inches(Including Boundary)||117 Inches(Working Area)|
|Arena Width :||99 Inches(Including Boundary)||93 Inches(Working Area)|
|Arena Boundary :||Height - 6 Inches||Height - 6 Inches|
Working Area need to be kept in mind while designing the bots. Bot should never attempt to cross working area. A boundary may be kept along the border (out of working area) and this boundary position and orientation may differ from Arena to Arena and time to time. It shouldn't matter to bots being designed by keeping working area in mind.
The total number of props will be 12, distributed in the manner given below
Tasks of Bot 1:
Tasks of Bot 2:
Deviation: When any of the bots move out of the track (completely i.e.no part of the robot is in contact with the Track), a Deviation will be marked. Collection area, zone 1 and zone 2 are the exceptions i.e. bots can freely roam inside the mentioned areas. This also means that during the arena run any of the ground touching part of the bots must be in contact with track or collection area or zone 1 or zone 2. Even a single Deviation by any bot will result in end of the game for the team and scores achieved so far will become the final scores.
NOTE: Props can only be carried by bot 2 from collection zone to Zone 1 / 2.NOTE: While unloading the props, the team needs to make sure that the prop(s) doesn’t move out of the zone 1 / 2, where either of the bots cannot reach. In such a situation, that prop(s) cannot be brought back and the task cannot be considered as complete. Loading / Unloading can only be done while the bot is present on the part of the track that is in contact with the respective Zones.NOTE: There is no colour sequence for stacking the Figure 1 and Figure 2. The stacks must structurally resemble Figure 1 and Figure 2
Each coloured prop corresponds to a particular weight as mentioned below
Both the zones ( Zone 1 and Zone 2 ) have some particular weight allowances and space i.e. only fixed amounts of equivalent weight and number of props can be accepted by the respective Zones.
Zone 1 will accept only 4 props and zone 2 will accept only 6 props.
If the weight allowance of zone 1 and zone 2 is 600 tonnes and 700 tonnes respectively.Bots can place 2x black and 2x orange props in zone 1.
Total weight calculation
2x black = 500 tonne
2x orange = 100 tonne
Total weight = 600 tonne
Total number of props in zone 1 = 4
Note : Team has to take care of the fact that only 4 props can be accomodated in zone 1.
Similarly for zone 2,
1x blue, 1x purple, 2x golden and 2x orange should be placed inside zone 2.
Total weight calculation
1x blue = 100 tonne
1x purple = 200 tonne
2x golden = 300 tonne
2x orange = 100 tonne
Total weight = 700 tonne
Total number of props in zone 1 = 6
Note : Team has to take care of the fact that only 6 props can be accomodated in zone 2.The weight allowances of each zone will be a random selection and will be decided at the arena (before the run). The link is also available to everyone for practicing.The teams must do the correct calculation to arrange the props in the correct manner and score points.Click Here: Weight Allowance
Type of Scoring - Mid match / End of match
|Task description||Score for each prop||Total Score|
|Successfully able to load the props on bot 2(Points will be awarded to each prop)
Scoring Method: Mid Match
|Successfully able to place the props inside zone 1 as per the weight allowance. (Points will be awarded to each prop)
Scoring Method: End Match
|Successfully able to create the Stack at zone 1. NOTE: 26 points will be awarded for each prop stacked correctly as per the figure 1 . No points will be awarded if stack is not/partially inside the designated zone.
Scoring Method: End of Match
|Successfully able to place the props inside zone 2 as per the weight allowance. (Points will be awarded to each prop)
Scoring Method: End Of Match
|Successfully able to create the Stack at zone 2. NOTE: 16 points will be awarded for each prop stacked correctly as per the figure 2 given in the arrangement scheme. No points will be awarded if stack is not/partially inside the designated zone.
Scoring Method: End of Match
There are two ways scoring can happen for a run:
If a team is able to finish all the tasks before time (100% of a run), a score of 5 points will be added with every 5 seconds of the time left.
For example: From the total time of 6 minutes, if the task was completed at 5 minutes 30 seconds mark, so 30 points will be added to the final score.
If the task was completed at 5 minutes 34 seconds so 25 points will be added to the final score.
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:
Brains: There is no limitation on the number of brains used per robot. Choose from the Avishkaar-manufactured ones shown here.
CP Lite Brain
E-Series Intro Brain
E-Series Lite Brain
E-Series Full Brain
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.
Note: The design shown in the 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 during verification. Any wheel of the bot which is in the air would be liable for rejection.
Note: The wheels of the bots need to be clean and shouldn't have any greasing or other material. Such actions can cause damage to the Arena and these bots will be rejected during verification.
Note: Only Avishkaar Original Products are allowed. Any tempering with any product in any way is strictly prohibited. If a team is found guilty of such offence, will be barred from the IRC.
