RoboSot Race

Research on mobile robot platforms is receiving an increasing share of attention, especially in the area of household domestic appliances. The problems and challenges facing the development of these platforms are many, varied and often significantly different from the problems faced in both the smaller sized and humanoid leagues.

Compared to the smaller sized leagues, these robots are fully autonomous and this brings many challenges in the areas of hardware design, communication, co-operation, intelligence, and sense. 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 competition will be a dynamic competition that continually shifts its goalposts 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.

In RoboSot Race Challenge, the robot needs to find the ball and obstacle automatically with Camera and LiDar. Meanwhile, avoiding the obstacle and taking the ball to the specified area.

This race is performed by a single wheeled robot in the half of a soccer field. Robot's objective in the RoboSot Race is to find the balls with specified colors and push them into the specific areas with the same color in the goal area. Balls are randomly placed in the field. There are also some obstacles randomly placed among the balls. The robot should avoid obstacles to catch the ball with specified color using Camera and LiDar and then push the ball into the area with the same color. 

Participants can only use camera(s) on their robot. No external cameras are allowed around or on top of the field. No processing stand or remote control is allowed in this race. The robots must be fully autonomous. TurtleBot 3 or other commercial platforms can be used for this race. Teams that design their own robots will get positive points. More details are mentioned in the rules.
