Robotics Society of Southern California Contest Rules
Get Your Robots Ready!
This is a listing of robot contests held by the Robotics Society of Southern California throughout the year.
Robot contests are announced during our meetings every 2nd Saturday of the month. Contests are scheduled to allow enough time for members to build and test their robots in anticipation of the BIG DAY of the contest.
This is a very challenging contest. Depending on the capabilities of the competing robots, various rules can be omitted upon request of the competitors. The most basic "Mini Robomagellan" will be:
An orange traffic cone will be placed on a grassy area. Its GPS coordinates are recorded and given to the competitors before the contest. The competing robots all start from the same place. The winning robot will be the one finding the cone in the shortest amount of time.
The hall contest is designed to lead to a successful demonstration of home navigation for a mobile robot. To this end, the contest is geared around activities that would be expected of a robot within a home environment. The contest de-emphasizes speed as a goal and emphasizes sensors, navigation and intelligence.
