Use the following link: http://robochallenge.ro/en/summer/register

Robochallenge Summer School started from our desire to be closer to our contestants, to offer them the support and guidance needed in order for them to build a competitive robot.

The trainees receive mechanics, electronics and programming classes, but also, the fact we think it is the most important: experience exchange with former contestants and trainees.

We set up a laboratory, equipped with necessary means for testing and developing robots: measuring devices, tools for PCB making and necessary design software. Optimum functionality of robots can be tested on fields similar to the ones used in the official competition, therefore sensors and robot parameters can be calibrated.

 At its fifth edition, Robochallenge Summer School will take place during 12th of July-15th of September, where we promise to offer our support , advice and useful practical examples for developing a competitive robot. The classes and laboratories will be held every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, after 6:00 p.m. , and all the details will be announced at our first meeting.

 If you consider words as robots, programming, electronics or mechanics are true mysteries or sound very familiar, we are waiting for you to reveal them together! Let’s build this summer the robot you will be competing with at the next Robochallenge edition!

Are you ready to participate in the greatest robotics competition in Romania? We invite you between 28th - 30th October in Bucharest at the International Robotics Competition, Robochallenge Romania 2016.
 
The greatest robotics competition in Romania is organized by the Electronics Students League - Liga Studentilor Electronisti and ETTI Robochallenge, with the support of the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology - Facultatea de Electronică, Telecomunicații și Tehnologia Informației, University “Politehnica” of Bucharest - Universitatea Politehnica din București.

For Line follower and Line follower Enhanced we change the time limit.

1.3. Time Limit
A maximum of 3 minutes is allowed for a robot to complete the course. A robot has unlimited attempts to finish the course in a maximum interval of time announce by the organizers before the challenge starts. The minimum interval of time will be 3 hours.

For Mega Sumo, Mini Sumo and Micro Sumo we change the robot placement at start.

4.1. Robot Placing
Upon the judge's instructions, the two teams approach the ring to place their robots on the ring. A cross in the middle divides the sumo ring into 4 quadrants. Robots always have to be placed in 2 opposing quadrants. The robots have to be placed at the border within the assigned quadrant. The robot has to cover the white border at least partially. The judge will remove the cross after positioning of the robots. After placing, the robots may not be moved anymore.

Don't forget for Mega Sumo, Mini Sumo, Micro Sumo and Maze the robots must be equipped with the Start Stop module.
