• SAVIORS Of The INTER-GALACTIC REALM (Image Processing)


    The life sources of three neighboring planets Althrace, Agrazord and Metraxis have arrived on Earth and so have the ships from these three planets. However, they are unable to distinguishably locate them in the Earth’s environment. The three life sources form a Holy Triad such that members of the triad supported by one of its elements cannot survive in the vicinity of others, unless they are present in their respective cores.

    You are called by Avengers because you are one of the few people on Earth who can decode the energy signal of those sources in available short span of time, and thus locate them. So get ready to embark upon a journey to deliver the life sources to their respective ships. The hopes of members of the Triad rest upon you.





    Problem Statement

    1. Teams have to make a bot that works on the principle of image processing.

    2. The bot has to traverse a maze and reach a final destination. Bot which does that in minimum time will be the winner.

    Design and build an autonomous robot that can pick an object and pass various types of difficulties using an overhead camera.


    Robot specifications:

    The dimensions cannot exceed 25cm*25cm*25cm.

    There is no constraint on the weight of the bot.

    The bot can be both internally or externally powered.

    The data can be transmitted from computer to the robot via cables/wireless.

    The robotic equipment has to be fully autonomous. Participants are not permitted to enter any information into the equipment during a run. The human operator should not directly control the motion of their bot with a joystick or by keyboard commands under any circumstances.

    Only image processing is allowed to be used, no other type of sensors can be used by the participants.

    Lego kits are not allowed.

    Any software can be used for image processing. Participants will have to bring their own laptops with appropriate software installed.


    Pre-game setup

    1. The participants will get 40 minutes of setup time for calibration and testing prior to the competition and according to a schedule that will be made available at the start of the event.

    2. In the setup time, participants can boot their computer and have the program ready for execution. Pre-game setup.


    Game Procedure

    Qualifying Round:

    The bot has to distinguish between objects of different colors and pick them up.


    The bot has to pick one object at a time, traverse a maze and then deposit that object in its respective deposition zone. The bot has to relate the height of the tower preceding the deposition zone and the no. of letters in the name of the color (e.g. red is 3).This process has to be repeated three times for delivering the three sources to their respective ships to finish the game.






    1. Organizers will not be responsible for any minor scratches left by the previous machines on the arena.

    2. Any team that is not ready at the time specified will be removed from the competition automatically.

    3. Participants should not dismantle their robots before the completion of the whole competition as the machines might need to be verified by the organizers at a later stage to ensure that the participants have not violated any of the rules.

    4. Organizers’ decision shall be treated as final and binding on all.

    5. The organizers reserve the right to change any or all of the above rules as they deem fit. Change in rules, if any, will be highlighted on the website and notified to the registered participants.

    6. Each team member should register on Quark website.



    1. In case a bot violates any of the specification criteria.

    2. If a bot damages the arena in any way.


    Team Specification

    A team may consist of a maximum of 5 members. Students from different educational institutes can form a team.



    All students with a valid identity card of their respective educational institutes are eligible to participate.
