About W.R.O.
World Robot Olympiad is an international robotics competition that allows students to engage in a process of solving a problem using the platform for educational robotics Lego Mindstorm. Students learn to think creatively, work in teams to collaborate and use programming tools to build autonomous robots that perform tasks to solve problems posed by the jury at the beginning of each year.

W.R.O. brings together young people from all over the world to develop their creativity, design & problem solving skills through challenging & educational robot competitions and activities.

W.R.O. 2011 Mission Detail (High School, Regular Category)
The robot must move from the “Base” and sort items in the “Bin” into categories nominated by the team by placing items of similar characteristics into nominated ‘sorting bins’.
During each attempt, each team will have a maximum time of two minutes to successfully complete the mission.
Items to be sorted - Eight items (exhibiting six different attributes) will be provided for the standard regular game (There will be two pairs of identical items). These items could be sorted at a simple level into two categories and possibly six at a more complex level.
The items, to be sorted, are to be placed on the “squares” in the “bin” area on the playing field. One item will be placed on one square. The distribution of the items on the playing field will be determined by the judges and announced at the start of the competition. It will be the same for all matches in both rounds.
The teams must nominate the characteristics that will be used to determine the “sort” and which “sorting bin” the particular items will be placed. Pre-made cards noting various characteristics that could be used to sort the items will be available for the teams to place on the base of the sorting bins. Blank cards will be available for teams to write the sorting characteristics, if they wish to sort according to characteristics not included in the available cards.
If a team identifies that a bin will be used, but the robot places no items in it, it will not be considered in the calculation of the score i.e. A team nominates 4 bins but the robot uses only 3, the number of nominated criteria will be considered as 3.
Points are awarded according to the complexity of the sort (i.e. the more refined the sort the higher the points), accuracy (points will be deducted for items sorted into a bin that do not meet the nominated criteria) and the time taken. A scoring formula is provided to assist in the scoring.
The mission will be completed when: all items have been placed in the correct nominated “sorting bins”; the maximum mission time is reach; or the robot is touched (after it has started) by a team member or any other person.
A surprise rule change may be announced before commencing the build phase of the competition.

7th W.R.O. - Manila Philippines, November 2010

In the junior high school category 49 teams participated. The mission named «Tumbang Preso», refers to an outdoor game where players' goal is to hit a guarded container and transfer it to a safe location before they capture the garrison. Since the robot was required to open a door by pressing a series circuit with a specific combination. Then had to cross a gate within a given time, to overturn a box and carry a second box at the finish line in 2 minutes time. Both the combination and the positions of boxes generated at the time of the competition after the draw. Our team was able to perform its task with complete accuracy within 32 seconds. After using the criteria for waiver of the tie won the 13th place.
