Research on mobile autonomous robot platforms is receiving an increasing share of attention, especially in the area of household domestic appliances. The problems and challenges faced during the development of these robots are many and varies thus often significantly different from the problems faced in both the large sized robot and humanoid forms. Compared to the legged robots, as these robots are fully autonomous, they brings many challenges in the areas of hardware design, communication, co-operation, intelligence and sensing. While in comparison to the humanoid leagues, they have the flexibility to employ non-human like sensing and motion systems. 

 This creates a much faster platform and this alone brings challenges in sensing, locating, and planning to the fore. It is our goal that the RoboSot challenge will be a dynamic challenge that continually shifts its goal from year to year to meet the problems and challenges that arise in this field. We also hope that competing teams will also find the challenges along this path both interesting and rewarding.

Challenge Structure

The RoboSot Challenge this year consist of 3 major challenges namely the Avoidance Challenge (Development), RoboSot Race Challenge (Development) and RoboSot Race Challenge (Application).

Robosot Avoidance Challenge (Development)

  • The avoidance challenge requires the teams to develop and exhibit capabilities in the area of identifying obstacles and path planning to reach the goal.
  • The challenge is performed in league format, with 2 teams competing to bring a specific colour ball to the respective goal area faster than the opponent robot to score points on each match. All participating teams will compete with every other teams in a game of 2 matches (first match and rematch).

Robosot Race Challenge

  • The Race challenge on the other hand requires the teams to develop and exhibit capabilities in identifying objects and transferring it the specific location repeatedly.
  • This is a small-sized soccer robot challenge for wheeled platform. After the game starts, the robot must search for the colour ball in the field and push the ball into the corresponding colour area to gain scores. The winner of the challenge is the team with the highest cumulative of the score.

Robosot Race Challenge (Development)

  • The development group needs to design the robot from scratch.

Robosot Race Challenge (Application)

  • The application group uses the TurtleBot 3 Burger manufactured by ROBOTIS company or Bveeta Mini manufactured by Bizbot Technology to compete.

The team.
