Your Challenge

Developments in robotic technology are a major advancement in human scientific endeavors, bringing together breakthroughs in multiple fields of engineering and fundamental science.


Daily life is increasingly dependent on robotics, from simple sensor-based devices to robots exhibiting advanced Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning capabilities. The nations of the GCC are adopting and playing significant roles in these exciting developments; the GCC is a now a large technological hub where software and hardware companies showcase their latest products to be absorbed into manufacturing and service sectors as well as civic  life. The competition arena is built to represent the famous landmarks of the six countries and current events.


In this simulating environment, the participants will compete for the winning title and award of the GCC Robotics Challenge.


The challenge consists of 6 rounds.


          •     Participants must go through all 6 rounds consecutively.

          •     The score will be awarded separately for each round.

          •     Two hour time window will be allocated for all participants to build, program and test their robots before officially starting the competition.

          •     Hybrid Programmed and remote controlled robots should be used to complete the tasks.

          •     The winners from each state will be representing their countries in the final.



1.     For the remote-controlled stage, the robot must be able to:


          a.     Move a handle vertically upwards.

          b.     Push a button.

          c.     Carry and move light objects.

          d.     Drive through different types of terrains.



2.     For the programmed/autonomous stage, the robot must be able to:


          a.     Follow a line.

          b.     Move around obstacles.

          c.     Go through a dark tunnel with no line in it.

          d.     Detect Colors

          e.     Push a button.
