We are sorry about the wait; things have been really busy for us here in Calgary!

And now here’s what you’ve all been waiting for – the rules for the new Off-Roadbot Challenge!

This is a new addition to our annual event, and we invite everyone to take part. Taking place in the field beside the museum, competitors will have their robots navigate an outdoor obstacle course from one end of the field to the other.

Take note that your robot will have to be rugged enough to survive potentially wet and bumpy terrain, as well as navigate through tall grass without losing it’s bearings. This challenge is meant for autonomous ground-based robots that are either mechanically or battery powered.
