General Rules:

  • All participants must carry their Event Entry Pass all time.
  • All participants must bring their own Robots.
  • Robot must have passed inspection prior to the competition.
  • Time will be counted from starting point to finish point. A robot is deemed to have crossed the line when the forward most wheel, track, or leg of the robot contacts or crosses over the line.
  • Robot can be powered up by using an on-board rechargeable battery or external DC power supply. Power supply should not exceed 12V in any case.
  • 12V Battery eliminators/Adapters will be provided at the event. It is the responsibility of the team to properly handle the wires when operating the bot with external power supply.
  • A maximum time of 3 minutes will be given for a robot to complete the track. A robot taking time more than 3 minutes will be disqualified.
  • Timekeeping: time shall be measured by an electronic gate system or by a judge with a stopwatch, based on the availability of equipment. In either case the recorded time shall be final.
  • Losing the Line: any robot that loses the line course must reacquire the line at the point where it was lost, or at any earlier (e.g. already traversed) point.
  • Skip Rule: A maximum of 3 skips are allowed, in which a participant can pick up the bot from where it loses the line and can keep it on the line not exceeding 10 cm from where the bot loses the line.
  • Manual touch other than used for skip is not allowed if robot is touched manually it will be counted as a skip.
