Stage-1 Submission

Template for DD-ROBOCON 2023 Solution Idea

As a part of Stage I, all teams need to submit the following online (Google Form) by the deadline specified on the website:

  1. “Solution Ideas (Form 1)” in the following format.
  2. A PDF file titled “Design Details Document team name” with a maximum of 5 pages (with times roman normal font size 12) to expand their points/claims given in the Solution Ideas (Form 1). The Images should be clear and readable.
  3. A link to the repository with the CAD models of the robots in STEP and STL format must be provided. If the files are uploaded on a cloud-based drive, no passwords/special permissions should be enabled. In such a case where passwords/special permissions are enabled on the drive link, the files won’t be evaluated.

The CAD models and PDF file link should be filled in form 1.

No changes in the CAD models will be allowed after the deadline.

  3. Type of actuators integrated  - (1 Point)
  4. Type of sensors integrated - (1 Point)
  5. Ring picking Mechanism - (1 Point)
  6. Brief description of Ring throwing Mechanism (RR) - (3 Points)
II. Design of Elephant Robot (ER) - (9 points)
  1. Overall dimensions (in mm) and estimated weight (in Kgs) - (1 Point)
  2. Type of Drive (differential, free wheel etc.) - (2 Points)
  3. Type of actuators integrated  - (1 Point)
  4. Type of sensors integrated  - (1 Point)
  5. Picking up the Ring from ground. (ER) - (2 Points)
    1. Ring throwing mechanism (ER) and 
    2. Ring passing mechanism (ER) (if included) - (2 Points)
III. Jumping mechanism (if included) of RR and if not included then team will be evaluated (2 Points) based on previous 18 points
  1. Brief description of the Jumping mechanism of RR - (2 Points)

Evaluation Criteria

  1. The Solution Ideas (Form 1) is worth a maximum of 20 points.
  2. The Design Document should detail the ideas proposed in the Solution Ideas form. It should be a technical document that describes proposed mechanism for achieving the different tasks. The document should also include relevant calculations/justifications for the proposed mechanism and demonstrate a clear understanding of the task’s objectives. Design Document, along with the CAD models of the proposed mechanism, is worth a maximum of 80 points. The individual sections will be evaluated as follows:

Points breakup for Design Document and CAD Models :

Task Mechanism CAD Calculations/ Justifications
Ring Picking, Receiving from ER and throwing (RR) 5 5 5
Ring picking, throwing and passing Mechanism (ER) 5 15 5
Jumping to Angkor Centre Area (RR) 5 5 5
Ring throwing Mechanism to Centre Pole (RR or ER) 5 15 5


  1. For the shortlisted teams after Stage I, 1/3rd weightage of Stage I score and 2/3rd weightage of Stage II score will be used to select the teams for the final competition to be held at IIT Delhi.


  1. If a team feels that some of the tasks not needed and their corresponding mechanism is not required then, explain it clearly in design document and make CAD design accordingly. In this case marks for mechanisms, which are not included, will be given based on average marks obtained by that team in other mechanisms.
  2. If a team feels that they can do all tasks with one robot only by following the rules. Then evaluation will be from 50 marks, and it will be doubled to make it out of 100.
