GEOBOTICS

THE WORLD HAS CHANGED

Almost every task is automated and robots make up the workforce. Now, due to an accident in the mine fields, experts are considering the application of robots to do the mining. You are a group of elite engineers tasked to test prototypes for the same. The job, is to carry explosives from the store room, collect them and then create controlled explosions at the specified area. The future of mines, is in your hands now.

TASK

Make a robot with boxes to store bearings and an arm containing an electromagnetic end end effector (i.e. attaching an electromagnet to the bot arm) and then to traverse a challenging arena, while collecting ball bearings from the specific places and store them on the bot. Drop the bearings at the specified location.

BOT DIMENSIONS

1) 25×25×30 cm (L×B×H) WITH MAX. 10% TOLERANCE (AT THE START OF THE RUN). HOWEVER,BOT DIMENSIONS MAY CHANGE DURING THE COURSE OF THE RUN.
2) WIRED OR WIRELESS. 
3) MAX POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE ALLOWED IS 24 V.
4) LEGO KITS ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

1) MAXIMUM MEMBERS PER TEAM IS FIVE.
2) PARTICIPANTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE PART OF MORE THAN ONE TEAM.
3) STANDARD SUPPLY OF 220 V, 50 Hz WILL BE AVAILABLE. (TEAMS CAN ARRANGE) FOR THEIR OWN SUPPLY IF THEY WANT OR REQUIRED.
4) MAXIMUM TIME-OUTS ALLOWED IS TWO.
5) RESTART IS ALLOWED TWICE WITH NEGATIVE POINTS
6) BONUS TASK WILL BE DECLARED ON SPOT (WON'T AFFECT YOUR BOT CONSTRUCTION)
7) PICKING UP DROPPING THREE BEARINGS IS COMPULSORY.
8) OTHER TWO WILL FETCH YOU BONUS POINTS.
9) BONUS CAN BE ATTEMTED ONLY AFTER SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE COMPULSORY TASK.
10) ENTERING THE BONUS AREA OTHERWISE WILL INCUR PENALTY
11) DAMAGE TO THE ARENA WILL LEAD TO DISQUALIFICATION.
12) DECISION OF TEAM ROBODARSHAN IS FINAL.
