Build a wireless remote controlled BOAT which travels a specified race track in the least possible time.
1. Maximum dimensions of the BOAT at any point of time during the race
• Length: 80 cm
• Breadth: 35 cm
• There is no constraint on the height.
(Note: The above mentioned dimensions includes the rudder and propeller of the BOAT)
2. BOAT can be powered either by an IC engine or a DC electric motor. Use of any other kind of power source is strictly prohibited. BOAT must have only one of these power source for propulsion
3. If powered by an IC engine, the capacity (displacement volume) should not be more than 3.2cc.
4. If powered by electric motors, the potential difference across the motor terminals should not be more than 12volts DC.
5. In addition to the power sources for propulsion you may use dc motors or servo motors for rudder controller.
• You have to fabricate the hull and rudder mechanism yourself. It is advisable to use light weight materials for making the hull (E g. balsa wood, FRP, plastics etc)
• If any ready-made components are found as a part of the hull, the team will be disqualified.
• Propeller, rudder fins, remote control, servo motors and electronic circuits can be taken directly from other models.
• Electronic circuits and servo motors/ ic engine should be laminated properly so as to keep them off from damage by water.
7. The BOAT will be inspected by immersing in water before each round and if found unsafe or potentially contaminating the water, it will be immediately disqualified from the race.
1. Teams must submit the design of their BOAT explaining the working principle and list of components used. (Maximum 2 pages)
2. Teams must submit photo(s) of their BOAT along with the report.
3. The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 6th March, 2010. The teams have to mail the detailed abstract along with the photos and the team name(put the team name in the subject) to email@example.com.Failure to comply with this rule can directly lead to disqualification of the team.
Race track details will be uploaded later but will essentially contain a loop/ turn The event will be conducted in BITS Pool having dimensions 25m*10m*2m.
1. Best of two trials will be considered (least time taken to reach the finish line) for the teams to qualify for the second round.
2. The track will be free from obstacles.
3. The exact number of teams qualifying for the second round will be decided based on the number of participants.
4. If Participants are using an IC engine, they can start the engine and the BOAT will be placed in the water and released it when the signal is given.
5. There will be penalty for touching the boundary.
1. Teams qualifying round 1 will participate in this round.
2. Round 2 is meant to test the speed, steering skills of the boat through various obstacles on the track. Details of the track will be uploaded later.
1. Each team can have a maximum of 4 members.
2. A participant cannot be a member of more than one team participating in this event.
1. The BOAT must be manoeuvred by a wireless remote control, if any controls are used.
2. Participants are advised to design the BOAT to prevent any damage that could be caused to your BOAT when it hits the boundaries of the track.
3. If you have any doubts regarding the BOAT specifications or rules or if your BOAT uses different components or concepts, which the problem statement does not specify, please contact the organizers to confirm the validity of the same. Do not assume anything yourself.
4. Judges decision shall be final and binding to the participants at the any point of time.
5. The organizers reserve the right to change a part or whole of the specifications and rules mentioned above. Changes, if any, will be updated in the website.
