CoSpace and RoboMaker 2018
Jointly organized by the Robotics & Maker Academy (RMA) and the RoboCup Singapore Regional committee, the 6th Singapore National CoSpace and RoboMaker Challenges will provide opportunities for primary, secondary, and tertiary students to learn robot making, coding and AI from basic line tracing to industrial robotic applications in a conducive environment with hands-on activities.
The Singapore National CoSpace and RoboMaker Challenges will include the full set of the RoboCup Asia Pacific CoSpace Challenges. A training workshop will be provided for everyone attending the event.
Participants first learn to build and code robots in training workshops, and subsequently use these robots in the CoSpace Grand Prix, CoSpace Rescue and CoSpace Logistics Challenge. In doing so, participants are able to acquire the necessary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and computational thinking skills to gain a better understanding in coding and robotics – skill sets that are necessary to enable Singapore to gear up as the world’s first Smart Nation.
The National CoSpace and RoboMaker Challenges also serve as the warming up competition for teams to participate in the 2nd RoboCup Asia Pacific Championship in Kish Island, on 5 – 10 Dec 2018.

The challenges are open to all students with or without experience in robotics and coding. All participants are eligible to attend a half-a-day training workshop. The details are as follows:
All teams participating in the CoSpace Grand Prix need to have the CsBot-M1 for the Challenge. Teams are required to bring the CsBot-M1 for training if you already have the robot.
The VRBOT-D1 is required for CoSpace Rescue, U19 (secondary) category. Teams are required to bring the VRBOT-D1 for training if you already have the robot.
CoSpace Grand Prix Challenge
In the CoSpace Grand Prix Challenge, teams are required to make a robot, code a robot, and finally take part in the Robot Race in the real-virtual co-existing space. The robot race begins in the real world. It will notify its virtual team robot after it reaches the teleportation terminal. The virtual robot will continue the race in the virtual world to complete the course. Teams are required to develop appropriate strategies for both real and virtual autonomous robot.

CoSpace Rescue Challenge
In RCAP CoSpace Rescue challenge, teams are required to use a real robot, develop and program appropriate strategies for both real and virtual autonomous robots to navigate through the real and virtual worlds to search and rescue victims, while competing with another team’s robot executing the same mission in the same real and virtual worlds. Selection and implementation of suitable AI strategy is very important in the RCAP CoSpace Rescue challenge.
