Robot Challenge 2000

The Brisbane Robotics SIG is proud to bring you the Robot Challenge.

The challenge WAS to be held at Griffith University Nathan Campus, on the 25th of November 2000 (just after uni exams).

However NOW the competition will be held at the Queensland Sciencentre located at 110 George St, Brisbane.

You must register your entry prior to the competition by sending an email to Aaron Dwyer.

As an incentive of Queensland Sciencentre, those that mention the Robot Competition at reception on entry will be given a 50% discount on entry fees.

Those that are competiting or have a club pass will gain free entry.

You can check out all that the Sciencentre has to offer before and after the competition.

There will be trophies for the first and second robots in each competition, and a medallion of participation plus certificate for each entrant.

* Stock Car Derby

Four autonomous race cars at a time compete against each other for speed! Not only does each car have to give its best, it has to look out for the other competitors or else risk a pileup.

* Sumo Wrestling

Based on real Sumo Wrestling rules, your autonomous robot is required to locate and push, flip, roll, shove, throw, hurl, or otherwise remove the opposing robot from a 1.5m ring in the shortest period of time. Originally initiated in Japan, Sumo Wrestling competitions have spread to robotics competions all around the world.
