Cybertech 2017

Build your robot and come to the competition!

Introduction


You can download the presentation of the information session of Cybertech 2017 here

Cybertech is an anual robot competition which is organized by the student's association Reset, with the full Departamento de Automática, Ingeniería Electrónica e Informática Industrial support. Thanks to the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Industriales of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.

Cybertech 2017 will take place between April 25th and 28th in the ETSII's sports arena.

This competition has three categories: Classic, Sumo and Cybertech++ .

In the Classic Category there are two kinds of challenges: maze and linefollower.

In the maze, the goal for the robots is to find the way out from a maze autonomously.

In the linefollower, the robots have to follow a circuit painted on the floor.

The challenge increases as the competition goes on, with more and more complicated mazes and obstacles...

In Sumo, the robots fight each other trying to immobilize the opponent or take it out of the ring.

In the Cybertech++ Category, the final goal is to come up with a multitask robot that competes in different modalities (sprinter, maze, mapping...) to demonstrate your knowledge in robotics. There won't be any workshops, your work won't be guided by Reset.

Checkpoints


First checkpoint

February 3rd

This first checkpoint is to check if the robot can move autonomously, controlling its motors from the driver. It will turn in both directions.

Second checkpoint

February 24th

In this checkpoint it will be shown that the robot detects (in whichever way each team decides) a black line on a white background.

Third checkpoint

March 10th

The third checkpoint will be passed if the robot detects walls, obstacles or measures distance, again letting each team decide how to show it.
