Futurite presents WRO training course for 2018

World Robot OlympiadTM (WRO) brings together young people from all over the world to develop their creativity, design and problem solving skills through challenging and educational robot competitions and activities. The international WRO final takes place once every year in November and teams qualify from national competitions to represent their countries.

REGULAR CATEGORY

This year students are expected to come up with innovative solutions using robotics technology to create Sustainabots: Robots for sustainability

ELEMENTARY WRO Training Course

Nearly 800 million people worldwide suffer from hunger. Still, about a third of the world’s food production is never eaten. It goes to waste. This year, the mission is to make a robot that can help reduce food waste. The task of the robot is to sort food products according to their looks and expiration dates and transport the sorted food to places that can make use of the food instead wasting it; i.e. dumping the non-sellable food to a landfill.

Game Description: The mission of the robot is to bring Scientists and Visitors from the Start Area to the Scientist and Visitor Areas (S&V’s). The robot must also move an endangered animal discovered in a S&V to the adjacent rainforest (the green Endangered Species Areas) or to the adjacent ocean (the blue Endangered Species Areas). The mission is completed when the robot is within the Finish Area

JUNIOR WRO Training Course

With a growing population in the world, more and more food needs to be produced every year. One way to get an increased food production is to use technologies like robots, drones, and satellites to improve the usage of arable land. Satellites and drones can provide accurate data on the soil quality of the different areas of the arable land. This data can be used by robots (self-driving tractors) to plant different seedlings on the land depending on the soil quality. In this way, the seedlings are adapted to the growing environment, which will improve the growth of the seedlings. The mission of the robot is to gather data on the soil quality of the fields of different farms and use this data to plant different seedlings depending on the soil quality.

Game Description: The mission of the robot is to bring the carbon footprint of one company to zero. The carbon footprint of a company is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the industrial processes of the company. The robot must install solar panels and plant the right kind of trees in the different planting areas to counterbalance the emissions of the company

WRO FOOTBALL

One way to increase the amount of food available worldwide for the consumers is to improve the way food is distributed from the producers to the costumers. This means that the primary goal of food distribution is to make sure that the consumers get the kinds of foods they demand from the producers. The secondary goal is to make sure as little food as possible is wasted during transportation. The Senior Challenge is to make a robot that can bring different kinds of food to the right destinations by appropriate ships and a robot that can equip the ships with temperature controllers that keep the different kinds of perishable food on board the ships in the desired temperature range during transportation.

Game Description: WRO Football aims, where possible, to reflect the game of human soccer. Teams of two on two autonomous robots chase an infra-red transmitting ball around a WRO size table top field with the aim to kick more goals than the opposition. Aims Robotics is a wonderful platform for learning 21st century skills. Solving robotic challenges builds innovation, creativity and problem solving skills in students, and because robotics cross multiple curriculum subjects, students must learn and apply their knowledge in science, engineering, math, and computer programming. The most rewarding part of designing robots is that students have fun, work together as a team, and learning occurs as naturally as breathing air.
