urriellu.net => Events => Microbotics championship at the University of Oviedo. Summer 2007

This is the robotics championship organized by the University of Oviedo on summer 2007 as part of a summer course for engineering students. We assembled a prebuilt robot and we developed its program/firmware in C language. You can see all the information and source code of my robot: Tustra.

Championship rules

championship rules
  • Target: Leave the playground by a door painted on the floor
  • Playground: Black circle, 80cm (31.5") diameter, surrounded by a 5cm (1.96") line
  • Door edges are 3cm (1.18") thick lines placed at 25cm (9.84") one from each other. The robot should stop when hitting one of the vertical cylinders placed in front of the door.
  • Getting out by the edges is valid but less valuable than crossing the door straightly
  • Main mode -> single-elimination tournament:
    • Two contestants will place their robots at a random place. The round ends when one of them leaves the playground by the door
    • If after three minutes none of the robots were able to leave the playground the round will be null
    • If a robot leaves by the edges, the other one will have available the whole round time (3 minutes) for leaving by the door, in that case being the winner
    • If a robot leaves by the door but is not capable of detecting the stop vertical cylinders, the other one will be able to try it and win
    • By this way one robot at a time will be eliminated until there is just one standing robot, which will be the winner of the competition

                  We found some problems with reflective sensors, maybe because there was too much ambient light and they weren't isolated, so tustra was pushed into the playground a bunch of times.
