COMPETITION CATEGORIES

ROBOCUPJUNIOR COSPACE RESCUE CHALLENGE

In CoSpace Rescue, teams are required to develop and program appropriate strategies for both real and virtual autonomous robots to navigate through the real and virtual worlds and collect objects, while competing with another team’s robot that is searching and collecting objects in the same real and virtual worlds.
Challenge Rule

ROBOCUPJUNIOR COSPACE DANCE CHALLENGE

CoSpace Dance means one or more real robots, virtual robots, human come together to present a 1 – 2 minutes stage performance (theatre show or dance) in a creative designed real and virtual co-existing world.
The CoSpace Dance challenge is intended to be very open-ended. You should be creative, innovative and make full use of robotics technology and interactive digital media to create the performance.
Challenge Rule

ROBOCODING CHALLENGE

The RoboCoding Challenge focuses on programming and computational thinking using fully autonomous robots. Teams are required to program the virtual RoboCar and compete with another team to race in the virtual environment.
Challenge Rule

ROBOMAKER CHALLENG

The RoboMaker Challenge focuses on Robot Design and Making. Teams are required to design and build a real robot car. Teams will be assessed in creative design, presentation and benchmarking race challenge.
Challenge Rule

COSPACE GRAND PRIX CHALLENGE

RoboCoding and RoboMaker teams can jointly form a SuperTeam. Each SuperTeam will have 2 robot cars – one virtual and one real. The real robot needs to complete the route in the real world and then teleport to the virtual world to complete the course. SuperTeams have to develop appropriate strategies for both real and virtual autonomous robots to race in their respective worlds while competing with another team’s robot.
