Combine mechanical design and programming skills to create robots that are carefully optimized for weight distribution, traction, and pushing power. The goal is a head-to-head pushing match, where robots must use sophisticated control algorithms to navigate the arena, predict opponents' movements, and execute precise manoeuvres.
The objective is to push the opposing robot out of the arena without the use of weapons or flipping manoeuvres.
- Teams construct their own robots with 8kg weight with 5% tolerance and should fit dimension of 40cm x 40cm x 30cm.
- Use of weapons and flipping mechanism is strictly prohibited.
- The maximum allowed voltage is 12V.
- Every match will be knockouts.
- A match will comprise of 2 rounds within a total of 3 minutes, i.e. 1 minutes 30

- A point is awarded when a team legally forces the opposing bot outside the border of the ring or when the opposing bot touches the border of the ring on its own.
- A team secures 1 point when they win a round, the teams that wins 2 rounds or secures 2 points within the time limit will be announced as winners.
- The match goes into overtime if it ends in a tie.
- The first team to score in the extended match wins.
- Alternatively, judges may decide the winner by drawing lots or holding a rematch.
- If an extended match is called by the referee, it will only last for a maximum of 3 minutes.

not be included in the match time.

- The match will be restarted if conditions such as bots being entangled or orbiting each other with no perceivable progress for five seconds happens.
- The match will restart if both the bots touch the border of the ring at the same time.
