Below are detailed robot-related rules and regulations.

  • The robot dimensions are measured before each round. During the round itself, dimensions are not restricted.
  • The robot should not scratch, cut or in any way damage the arena or the obstacles. Any robot violating this condition will not be allowed to participate.
  • Participants are not allowed to assist, touch, or interfere with the robot. Violating this rule will lead to disqualification from the competition.
  • During autonomous rounds, the robots should finish the round themselves. Wired, wireless and radio communication is not allowed. Remote controls are not allowed except for the rounds where a remote is required. Violating this rule results in disqualification.
  • Pre-programmed robots are allowed.
  • If the robot flips over during any round and cannot manage to recover within 25 seconds, the round is terminated. Only the completed obstacles will be counted. In case of mechanical malfunctioning, the teams are allowed to fix the robot within the round time and restart from the beginning. Completed obstacles do not have to be repeated. A penalty of 50% is applied to the remaining part of the round.
  • Teams will have 15 minutes between rounds to modify or fix their robots. The robots must be handed to the judges for inspection before the end of the 15 minutes. Teams failing to follow this rule will be disqualified from that round.
  • In case of mechanical malfunctioning, the teams are allowed to fix the robot within the round time and restart from the beginning. Obstacles completed do not have to be repeated. A penalty of 50% deducted points will be applied for the remaining part of the round.
  • If two tires/wheels of the robot go out of the arena, the round will be over for that team. Only points for completed obstacles will be counted.
