D&D's Awesome Battle of the Bots

Mini Challenge # 1
Wall Following


Equipment Needed:

Goal:
Make your way through the battlefield, following the wall and remaining within the outer boundaries. Complete the challenge within the 22cm and 30cm boundaries to receive points. Stay inside these boundaries while also avoiding running into the wall. Travel around the wall twice to receive bonus points.


Parameters:

  • Your team’s Bot will be placed at the start of the battlefield and must follow the entire wall.

  • The robot must not run into the wall at any point or the attempt is considered complete and no more points are awarded.

  • There are two boundaries on this battlefield at 22cm and 30cm. The battlefield is broken into four sections. If your robot remains inside the 22cm boundary for an entire section, the maximum points will be awarded. If your robot touches the 22cm boundary at any point in a section, but stays within the 30cm boundary, points will be awarded accordingly. If your robot does not stay within either of the boundaries, no points will be awarded for that section.

  • If any part of the robot in contact with the ground or supporting the robot (wheels, etc.) makes contact with the boundary line, this will be considered crossing the boundary. Wires, sensors and other parts of the robot may cross the boundary as long as they are not in contact with the ground.

Points:

  1. 1st Section

  • 10 points for completion inside 22cm boundary

  • 5 points for completion inside 30cm boundary

     

  1. 2nd Section

  • 20 points for completion inside 22cm boundary
