Robo Soccer

Problem Statement

With the increasing terrorist attacks and alarming situation to save our soldiers something that can save lives using costly machines instead to priceless human lives would be a better option.

"A bot that helps in keeping the ball in its court would be much better i.e. a bot that is wireless and on the instructions can destroy the places or bunkers of terrorists by planting the destroying material wherever required."

Description

The event is based on construction of a bot (wired/wireless) that would work as a football player and put the ball to the goal defecting the opponent with minimum number of hits to the other bot and arena and least use of weapons that cause damage to others.

Its industrial application is still limited but can be used as a robo to replace humans for planting bombs, etc. at a dangerous area in military applications also they are mainly used to promote robotics in the country and further make robots smart enough to work in different areas.

Robo-soccer is a specialized robotics event where bots (moving on wheels with electric supply) are used to play soccer. This event is inspired by FIFA. Robo-soccer must have a U- shaped or a V-shaped panel/ projection with the sole purpose of pushing or dragging the ball to score and defend goals.

Advantages

  • Security would be increased if used in military applications.
  • Promote the basic idea of robotics that can further lead to huge developments.
  • It can also reduce the risk of losing lives by soldiers in case if implemented correctly and accurately.

Bot Specifications

  • Robo can be wired or wireles.
  • Your robo must fit within a size no more than 300mm×300mm×300mm(L×B×H).
  • The Max. Weight limit of robot including all the accessories and equipment(Batteries) is 5kgs.
  • In case of wireless robot weight of power source must be included.
  • Bring your own AC to DC converter as college will provide 220Volt AC supply only.
  • Maximum DC source voltage allowed for event should not more then 12V.
  • The Robo's are not allowed to use any movable parts such as grippers or actuations indeed harm the opponents robo soccer.
