Design Race Course
VEX V5 Speedbot in the Robo Rally Challenge

Robo Rally Challenge

In this challenge, you need to drive your robot through your racecourse combined with another individual or team's course! To successfully complete the challenge, teams must also create a correctly scaled map of the new combined course using the dimensions and scales from both students or teams. Each team from the combined course will have a Driver that will navigate the robot through the course. The team with the Driver who completes the course the fastest, wins!

Challenge rules:

  • The robot must begin and end at the finish line.

  • Both teams will use the Drive Program on the Robot Brain.

  • As one team member drives the robot, others should ensure the robot is not hitting the sides of the course or losing control.

  • You may drive the robot through the racecourse one time as a practice round before time is recorded.

  • The dimensions of both courses must be in the same units and scale.

  • Each team must complete a new correctly scaled map, with measurements, based on the values of the combined racecourses.

  • Whichever team completes the same course in the shorter amount of time - wins!

  • Have fun!
