The Advanced Robotics Challenge (ARC) games are designed to test older and more experienced student’s engineering and programming skills to the limit. ARC started with a Bowling challenge in 2013 and 2014. In 2015 and 2016 we ran the Tetrastack challenge. The game for 2019 and 2020 is the SMARTGreenhouse challenge.
In the future WRO will focus on the K-12 group. The result of this is that the ARC category will be discontinued. The 2020 season will be the last season we run ARC competitions.
Advanced Robotics Challenge characteristics:
- One age group: 17-25 years old.
- Hardware: The robot can be built using any type of hardware kits and any material. Teams can use 3d printed elements, elements prepared with a CNC machine, elements cut from acryl/wood/metal or any elements from any material. There are no restrictions about the use and brand of sensors, batteries or electrical motors and servos.
- Controllers: The controller used for the robot can be either Single board computer or Single board microcontroller with no restriction on brand.
- Software: Control software can be written in any programming language.
- Maximum robot size: 34,5 x 34,5 x 34,5 cm.
- Team: A team consists of 1 coach and 2 or 3 team members.
