Flags from the countries of all teams who've competed at RoboGames/ROBOlympics.

RoboGames Event Schedule and Rules

The 11th annual games were held Fri-Sun, Apr 3-5, 2015. First, second, and third places finishers in all categories receive medals (gold, silver, or bronze respectively).

Robots that don't fit into a specific category can enter "Best of Show" which can be any kind of robot doing anything. Junior League events are specifically set-up for robot builders under 18. "Entry Fees" are the cost to compete, not the cost for an audience ticket. Entry Fees include a limited number of team members (generally 1 person per robot.) Registration does not come with an unlimited number of crew passes, nor does it automatically guarantee admission. All registrations subject to passing individual safety and qualification standards.

Previous year's results: 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004. Check out videos from previous events or view photos here.

Notes:

  • Check rules for specifics on each entry class.
  • Control methods (R/C or autonomous) are as listed in the rule sets for each competition. In cases where there is both an R/C and autonomous event in the same class, they are separate events - one for R/C and one for autonomous.
