Here’s some pictures of the last Roboracing event.
== Competition Rules ==
1. Competition is divided into two groups: user controlled and autonomous.
2. Once the race begins the autonomous group may not touch by hand or remotely or interact with their robot unless required by the judges.
3. The user controlled group may only indirectly observe the race, this is by use of their robots camera/video interface.
4. A robot that has left a part on the track may not cross the finish line and will be disqualified.
5. Robots cannot jump, climb, drill or damage to the track wall.
6. A run-time here classed as from crossing the starting line, completing two laps by crossing the finish line on the second lap.
7. Once the race begins, the operator may not touch the robot, an interference penalty of 10 seconds will be added for each touch.
8. Robots are scored by their run-time and barrier decision-making by choosing the shortest distance; a collision penalty of 5 seconds will be added for each hit.
9. Final run-time is calculated as: (first lap) + (second lap) + (interference(s) x 10) + (collision(s) x 5) = (final run time) – (if penalties = 0 then -10 seconds)
10. Example: A robot runs two laps on the track with a time of four minutes, it does not collide with track wall or obstacles and no interference, the second lap of 1 minute 30 seconds, the second circle is the robots fastest lap. The final result is 4 minutes minus 10 seconds bonus = 3 minutes 50 seconds final run-time.
11. Prior to the official race, each robot is granted two laps of practice the judges will provide practice data to participants.
12. A reset by hand or by controller for the race will result in a 10 second touch penalty.
13. The judges at their discretion will use either manual timing device or automatic sensors at the start/finish line to record times.
14. The race will function in the venues natural lighting, temperature and humidity, the judges/organizers at their discretion can adjust this. If your robot needs a higher contrast please bring this up directly with the event organizers.
15. In the event that a robot is out of control or causes harm to the track the judges/event organizers reserve the right to stop the race and disqualify the robot.
16. Two robots will go head to head on the track at one time, times will be posted and tracked on a leader board, the top three robots with the lowest time will take first, second and third winning positions.
17. The first 4 teams with highest score will match again 2 by 2 on in the final run.
