So entry for today is about MUROC, stand for Malaysia University Robot Competition. Basically this robot competition is a lightweight category (based on my opinion). In this competition, the have 3 types of games...
1)Fire Fighting Robot -
Fire Fighting Robot is a game based on fire fighter rescue mission (consists of victim rescue and fire extinguish activities). The Fire Fighting Robot will be required to search around the house (field) victims and rescue as much as possible, while extinguishing fire in three minutes. This exercise is completed when the robot returns to the starting zone (RESCUE). Two teams (red and blue) will fight in each round (Muroc2011.blogspot.com,2011)
2)Rope Climbing Robot -
Rope Climbing Robot is a game based on the military physical training. The Rope Climbing Robot is required to climb a 4.5 meter (177”) rope in three minutes. This exercise is completed when the robot touched the dedicated round plate (CLIMB) at the end of the rope. Two teams (red and blue) will fight in each round (Muroc2011.blogspot.com,2011).
3)Paint Ball Robot -
Paintball Robot is inspired from the paintball game and has the same basic rule. The game will be ended when the robots can bring back the opponent competition flag to the starting zone (ACCOMPLISH). Two teams (red and blue) will fight in each round for five minutes. Each team is represented by 3 operators responsible in controlling the robot via remote control, 3 pit crews responsible for setting up of the robots and an instructor (Muroc2011.blogspot.com,2011).
Our faculty,FKP has chosen the Fire fighting robot, and the team consist of 2 year 3 and 5 year 1 degree student. Actually this competition is just like a beginning for the year 1 student. To collect knowledge, to experience hardship and also to make them feel that making robot is fun and satisfying (i hope the get it, or else we will not see them anymore in next robot competition)
Finally, like to wish this team...gudluck and all the best...and very2 sorry that i can not go along....
