Hi… i’m sorry for being late, here they are my questions:
When can we have all the field specs for the videos?
And about the live demonstration, the field will be chosen by us or by the arbiters?
And if arbiters decides, when we will know the field specs?
The live demonstration will be only one or more?
Can you explain better how the winner will be chosen?
Is there any points system or will win the coolest robot in terms of features, performance and documentation?
1: We are currently working on finalising the field designs and they will be published very soon.
2 & 3: The final design for the live demonstration during the interview will be provided a few days ahead. But be prepared to do some minor changes to the field during the interview as we may ask you to test slightly different variations.
4: Corrrect, there will be only one live demonstration. It will take place directly after the live presentation. More infos on the schedule can be found on the Rescue Community website.
5 & 6: We will score each of the 4 parts of the competition according to the rubrics. For the documentation and the live presentation you can see the amount of points per category in the columns, e.g. according to the first row of the documentation rubric (Mechanical design and manufacturing) you will receive 3-4 points if you use a “Commercial kit with 2+ functional components from another manufacturer”. We will add the scores for each part of the competition and combine these scores into an overall score while weighting the individual parts of the competition. Additionally, there will be some extra awards for special aspects of the competition.
IMPORTANT UPDATE TO THE RUBRICS AND TEMPLATE FOR DOCUMENTATION
We added some more information regarding the weighting of the different parts of the competition at the top of the rubrics document.
The time limit per run (3 runs per field - 9 runs in total) for the video is now specified to be 4 min.
Also, and this is very important, we included a Software section in the documentation rubrics.
To make it easier for you to create the documentation we created a template. Please use this template and keep the formatting of the document. The final document is supposed to be between 5 to 10 pages long and should be converted into a pdf file before submitting.
To take part in the competition, you are not required to publically share your hardware design and code, but we would strongly encourage you to somehow share your knowledge with the RoboCupJunior community. This can be through your own website, a blog or even through this forum.
Since we wanted to reward the teams that make the effort to share their knowledge with the community, we added the sharing section to the rubric.
