Game Description

The robots participating in the competition must follow the black line having white background clearing

the obstacle present in their path. Two robots are allowed to follow the black line simultaneously in the

similar track. Obstacle of weight less than 100 g will be placed in the path and the robot must clear the

obstacle automatically from the path. The robot with maximum points is considered as the winner.

Judging Criteria

1. The robot must follow the black line clearing the obstacles automatically located in the path within

5 minutes.

2. The robot is allowed to start over from the nearest check point if the robot goes out of the track.

3. Game is based on the pointing system.

i. Clearing the obstacle adds 50 points per obstacle.

ii. If the robot completes the task faster than the opponent, 100 points will be added.

iii. The operator can skip the obstacle and continue without clearing the obstacle if the attempt

of removing the obstacle fails within 30 seconds after reaching the checkpoint.

iv. If the robot stops automatically in the End point, 50 more points will be added.
