The land is simply too dangerous for humans to reach the victims. Your team has been given a difficult task. The robot must be able to carry out the rescue mission in a fully autonomous mode with no human assistance. The robot must be durable and intelligent enough to navigate through treacherous terrain with hills, uneven land and rubble without getting stuck. When the robot finally finds the victims, it has to gently and carefully transport the victims to the safe evacuation point where humans can take over the rescue. After the victim rescue, the robot should be able to find its way out of the dangerous area.

Time and technical skills are the essential! Come prepared to be the most successful rescue team.


An autonomous robot should follow a black line while overcoming different problems in a modular Field formed by tiles with different patterns. The floor is white in color and the tiles are on different levels connected with ramps.

Teams are not allowed to give their robot any advance information about the field as the robot is supposed to recognize the field by itself. The robot earns points as follows:

  • 15 points for following the correct path on a tile at an intersection or a dead end.
  • 10 points for overcoming an obstacle (bricks, blocks, weights and other large, heavy items). A robot is expected to navigate the various obstacles.
  • 10 points for reacquiring the line after a gap.
  • 5 points for negotiating a speed bump or navigating through a ramp.


If the robot gets stuck in the field, it can be restarted at the last visited checkpoint. The robot will earn points when it reaches new checkpoints. At the end of the line there will be a rectangular room with walls (the evacuation zone). The entrance to the room will be marked with a strip of reflective silver tape on the floor.

Once inside the evacuation zone, the robot should locate and transport as many live victims (reflective silver balls of 4-5 cm diameter that are electrically conductive) or dead victims (black balls of 4-5 cm diameter that are not electrically conductive) as possible to an evacuation point in one of the corners of the room, the robot should distinguish between live and dead victims and save live victims first. The robot can earn between 5 to 40 points for each victim depending of the difficulty level and order of rescue. The robot may face obstacles/speed bumps/debris in the evacuation zone. The robot will not score points by negotiating these difficulties.


  1. Field
  • Description
  • The field is made up of modular tiles, which can be used to make an endless number of different courses for the robots to traverse.
  • The field will consist of 30 cm x 30 cm tiles, with different patterns. The final selection of tiles and their arrangement will not be revealed until the day of the competition. Competition tiles may be mounted on a hard-backing material of any thickness.
  • There will be a minimum of 8 tiles in a competition field.
  • There are different tile designs (examples can be found under rule “1.3 Line”).


  • Floor
  • The floor is white in color. The floor may be either smooth or textured (like linoleum or carpet) and may have steps of up to 3 mm height in between tiles. Due to the nature of the tiles, there may be a step and/or gap in the construction of the field. These are not intentional and will be minimized as much as possible by the organizers.
  • Competitors should be aware that tiles may be mounted on thick backing or raised off the ground, which may make it difficult to get back on a tile where the robot comes off the course. No provision will be made to assist robots that drive off of a tile to get back onto the tile.
  • Tiles will be used as ramps to allow the robots to “climb” up to and down from different levels. Ramps will not exceed an incline of 25 degrees from the horizontal.
  • Robots must be designed so that they can navigate under tiles that form bridges over other tiles. The minimum height (space between the floor and the ceiling) will be 25 cm


  • Line
  • The black line, 1-2 cm wide, may be made with standard electrical insulating tape or printed onto paper or other materials. The black line forms a path on the floor. (The grid lines indicated in the drawings are for reference only and competitors can expect tiles to be duplicated, added and/ or omitted.)
  • Straight sections of the black line may have gaps with at least 5 cm of straight line before each gap as measured from the shortest portion of the straight portion of the line. The length of a gap will be no more than 20 cm.
  • The arrangement of the tiles and paths may vary between rounds.

The line will be 10 cm away from any edge of the field.
