Challenge: CanDo Advanced

Printer-friendly version

This is much the same as the Basic CanDo challenge except for one nasty twist.

The field consists of a 36” diameter white circle with a black border. Inside this circle are placed five “cans”. Your robot must move at least three of these cans back into the green start box within three minutes.

The field looks something like this:

Rules and Procedures: 
  1. Robots must start completely inside the Start Box. None of their parts can extend out past the start box until “Run” is pressed.
  2. Robots must push the cans back to the green start box.
  3. A can is counted out the moment it is completely past the inner green line of the start box. It must be standing upright when released by the robot.
  4. Touching or signaling a robot during a round disqualifies it from finishing the rest of the round. Cans already outside the circle are counted.
  5. Robots may use the area just outside the ring for turning only
  6. Each round is three minutes long
  7. If a robot is stuck outside the boundary circle for more than 15 seconds, the round is over and the cans are counted
