    – Obstacle 2 – Blue: When the robot detects it, it should push the obstacle away.

  7. Obstacles are randomly placed on the straight, continuous line.
  8. A checkpoint will be placed half the way through the round. The position will vary. If the robot passes this checkpoint, it guarantees 5pts.

Points Distribution

  1. If the robot passes this checkpoint, it guarantees 5pts.
  2. If the robot pushes the blue obstacle, it guarantees 5pts.
  3. If the robot goes around the red obstacle, it guarantees 5pts even if it does not return to the track.
  4. If the robot manages to get back to the track and completes the line, it guarantees the last 5 pts.
