Robot Challenges

Line Following Challenge

Our event goals: Fun while Learning, Sharing, and Teamwork….Winning is secondary.

Challenge Goal:  NEW 2017 – PRECISION, NOT QUANTITY, of BALL DELIVERY!!! An autonomous robot must follow a line to a tower, stop, deliver at least 1 ping pong ball, and return to home under 3 minutes. If time permits, the robot must then deliver a SET NUMBER of BALLS (DIFFERENT FOR EACH DIVISION). Once the team has delivered the required number of balls, the time is stopped, BUT a team can use all 3 minutes, if needed.

Open to:  Elementary School (ES), Middle School(MS), High School(HS), Big Kids(BK); 4 divisions

Rules & Scoring: Line Following Challenge 2017 Rules & Scoring

Materials/Requirements: (Track, Tower, Robot) 

NEW 2017

  • The tracks:
    • Elementary School division – No intersections, ~1.27 cm black line on white PAPER
    • Middle School division – One intersection, ~1.27 cm black line on white PAPER
    • High School + Big Kid division – Two intersections, ~0.76 cm black line on white PAPER
  • The tower:
    • All divisions use the same ~20 cm tall x ~10 cm wide x ~36 cm long tower with an open back for allowing balls to roll out during delivery
  • The robot: 
    • Any autonomous robot platforms are allowed provide total value does not exceed the $1500 USD
    • The robot has 3 minutes to complete their task.
  • The entire robot + payload system must be a volume of 65,030 cubic cm or LESS.
