Challenge Objects

12 Ping-Pong balls are allowed to be loaded onto the robot by participants before the robot starts.

The robot must start in the large green area.Challenge Overview

At the start of each round (post-quarantine), 9 colored cubes (3 blue cubes, 2 green cubes, 2 yellow cubes and 2 red cubes) will be randomly placed on the white squares. Challenge Overview

The robot's mission is to dive into the water and determine the number of pearls found in each of the three colored zones.Challenge Overview

The colored cubes must be pushed into the small colored end zone below the white square where the block is found. Challenge Overview

0 Pearl

1 Pearl2 Pearls3 PearlsChallenge OverviewThe robot must determine the number of pearls that each cube represents by its color.

Each pearl found is represented by one Ping-Pong ball.

Challenge OverviewThe sum of the pearls found in a colored zone gives the total number of Ping-Pong balls the robot should deposit into the large colored area associated with that zone.Challenge Overview

To make sure the diver does not run out of air, the diver must touch the border of the large colored zones within every 30 seconds. If the diver runs out of air the attempt is immediately ended. Challenge Overview
