The total weight of each robot, including Racks, battery, controller, cables and any
other equipment that the team brings for use in the game must not exceed 25kg. Can you explain the exact meaning of this weight constraint? PLEASE.
The sentence is self-explanatory. Most of the times, equipment required for assembly of robot is not included in 25kg limit. Similarly, weight of compressor, spare batteries is usually not included in the 25kg limit. But, please wait for the official FAQs to be released by Robocon Vietnam and Robocon India.
It has been clearly mentioned in the rulebook, article 7.5.
“The robot (including the controller and cable) must fit into the Start Zone (1000mm x 1000mm x 1000mm). Throughout the game, the robot together with any rack that will be attached to the robot after shuttlecocks loading shall not exceed regulated 1500mm
length x 1500mm width x 1800mm height. “
While keeping the used shuttlecock rack,can the rack be kept outside the loading zone?? If No, is it valid that some part of the rack touches the loading zone(yellow) and some part exceeds loading zone(falls away in the green region) ??
