WRO® Robot Virtual Games® 2021

WELCOME TO THE BEST VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE IN THE WORLD!

Robot Virtual Games® is pleased to announce that due to the success of our last year event the WRO international committee has decided to enable our tournament again in the 2021 season.

The competition uses the Virtual Robotics Toolkit® simulator and is hosted on the new e-Sports platform www.robotvirtualgames.com (RVG) – developed by the WRO® National Organizer in Panama, Panama STEM.

Participants up to the age of 19 are invited and will be able to compete. It is not a requirement that participants have been previously participating in WRO®. Anyone can join. This way we hope to inspire many new WRO® teams!

This year we will have national tournaments, which will be held by the National Organizer of each country.

Here you can find general information about the tournament, but for more information it is important that you contact your National Organizer.

If you don't know how to contact them you can write to us at [email protected] and we will help you.

FORMAT OF THE COMPETITION

There will be three newly designed VRT Mat Challenges.

On each WRO Age Group, there will be two challenges with the same Mat. One will be a Beginners Challenge and another will be an Advanced Challenge. The Advanced Challenge will be more complex and the teams can import their own robot.

You can only participate in one of the two challenges per Age Group. That means that you must choose between Beginners Challenge and Advanced Challenge.

These are the mats for this year WRO® Robot Virtual Games 2021®

ENERGY AT HOME- WRO® ELEMENTARY CATEGORY

AGE GROUP: UP TO 12 YEARS OLD

The robot helps to modernize a house. The robot will replace old lamps with new energy saving lamps. The robot also needs to mount solar cells on the roof and needs to install intelligent smart home devices.

This work will help to reduce the energy demand of the house and to make the best use of renewable energy.

PARK & CHARGE – WRO® CATEGORY JUNIOR

AGE GROUP: 13 TO 15 YEARS OLD

The robot needs to pick up vehicles at the entrance of the parking garage and bring them to the correct parking space, depending on the type of vehicle. After that, the robot needs to distribute batteries for charging hybrid and electric vehicles.

We get inspired by mobile charging batteries or parking garage robots by watching the following videos:

POWER MIX– WRO® SENIOR CATEGORY

AGE GROUP: 16 TO 19 YEARS OLD

The robot task is to supply houses with renewable energy sources according to their needs. Depending on weather conditions, one of the energy sources is available in surplus and can also be used to supply the houses. Energy that is currently not needed for supply should be stored in a battery
