Beware machines gonna kill "not you chill", machine gonna fight, machine gonna win, and rule the ring. May your machine
be the king.
Roboclash is a war between robots where the sole purpose is to win by immobilizing your opponent’s robot. Use all your engineering
skills to design a robot which can defend it from opponents and more importantly destroy your worthy opponent by immobilizing
them. Cage of death is waiting for the destruction.
Participants will pit their robots against each other in an arena and the fight will continue until one robot overtakes
or overthrows another from the ring. Their may be some surprize fun events and more surprising stuffs waiting for your bot
in the cage. Where the condition will be of do or die. Be king or slave. So get excited and come up to show what you and
your talent can do, in front of thousands of people cheering and warming the breath.
Team Specification :
A team may consist of a maximum of 4 participants, all from the same different institute.
General Rules : The competition will be played consisting of 2 players at a time , The maximum duration of each round will be 5 minutes.
- The robot would be checked for its safety before the competition and would be discarded if found unsafe for other participants
- Judges' decision shall be treated as final and binding on all.
- The organizers reserve the rights to change any or all of the above rules as they deem fit. Change in rules, if any will
be highlighted on the website and notified to the registered teams.
- Violation of any the above rules will lead to disqualification.
Criteria for Triumph :
- A robot is declared victorious if its opponent is immobilized or out of the arena.
- A robot will be declared immobile if it cannot display linear motion of at least one inch in a timed period of 30 seconds.
A bot with one side of its drivetrain disabled will not be counted out if it can demonstrate some degree of controlled movement.
- If both robots survive the five minutes at that point, the robot with the higher hit points wins.
Safety Rules :
- Compliance with all event rules is mandatory. It is expected that competitors stay within the rules and procedures of their
own accord and do not require constant policing.
- If you have a robot or weapon design that does not fit within the categories set forth in these rules or is in some way ambiguous
or borderline, please contact the event organizers.
- All weapons must have a safety cover on any sharp edges.
Problem statement : Design and construct a remote or wired controlled robot capable of fighting a one on one tournament.
Dimensions and Fabrications :
- The bot should fit in a box of dimension 1.7ft * 1.7ft * 1.7ft (l x b x h) with all mechanisms fully executing motions. Length
and width is measured to the extremities of the Robot, i.e. includes any overhanging bodywork, weaponry or protrusions. The
external device used to control the bot is not included in the size constraint.
Mobility : All bots must have easily visible and controlled mobility in order to compete. Methods of mobility include :
- Rolling (wheels, tracks or the whole robot).
- Jumping and hopping is allowed to an extent of 1/2ft.
- Flying (using airfoil, helium balloons, ornithopters, etc.) is not allowed.
Robot Control Requirements :
- If the bot is wired then the wire should remain slack under all circumstances during the competition. All the wires coming
out of the bot should be stacked as a single unit. The wires should be properly insulated. Teams are suggested to use only
rated wires such as ISI marked. Loose connections or improper wiring may lead to direct disqualification even before the
- If the bot is controlled wirelessly, the bot must at least have a four frequency remote control circuit or two dual control
circuits which may be interchanged before the start of the race to avoid frequency interference with other teams. The case
of any interference in the wireless systems will not be considered for rematch or results.
- Remote control systems from toys might be used. Remote control systems available in the market may also be used.
Battery and Power :
- The machine can be powered electrically only. Batteries must be sealed, immobilized electrolyte types (such as Li-ion, NiCd,
NiMH or dry cells).
- Working voltages must not exceed 24V DC (mean voltage) at any point of time.
- All power connections must be of an adequate grade and adequately insulated. Cables must be routed to minimize the chances
of being cut.
- All efforts must be made to protect battery terminals from a direct short and causing a battery fire, failure to do so will
cause direct disqualification.
- Battery Eliminators are allowed and power source would be available at the venue for the eliminators. Motors: The robot should
move as fast as possible around the arena with the help of motors.
- DC motors and stepper motors (12V-24V) can be used as per the design of bots.
