Participation in this activity is an end – to – end competitive experience from concept design of a system of robots programmed to perform according to rules of the game played on a high precision technical Contest Area and to score a victory beating the competitors; all this according to a Theme declared by the Host Country. International Robocons are mainly sponsored by Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) which includes Doordarshan (Prasarbharati) of India as a member which has been organizing all activities in India for last Nine years with collaboration with MIT Group of Institutions Pune, India.

The next year’s ABU Robocon will be held in 2016 Bangkok.

The contest theme is – “Chai-Yo : Clean Energy Recharging the World”.

At present, we utilize energies for several purposes in daily lives. The sources of all energies are from nature. Human extract or synthesize these energies from nature. Among all the energies, fossil energy is among the cheapest and easily available. In the past, we misunderstood that fossil energy had unlimited amount and superfluously consumed them. Our energy-consuming habit from the past has affected us a lot this day.

The sources of fossil energy are harder to explore. The existing fossil energy will last not too long. In order to solve this problem, we have to efficiently utilize the existing energy and at the same time explore and utilize alternative sustainable energy which should be clean and renewable in order to compensate the energy from fossil.

Based on the reasons above, the game of ABU Robocon 2016 is designed in order to create the awareness of efficient energy consumption and clean and renewable energy utilization. Each team has to build two robots; Eco Robot and Hybrid Robot. Eco Robot doesn’t have an actuator to drive. It receives the driving energy from Hybrid Robot.

Eco Robot has to use only one steering actuator to control its direction, to track the path containing Slopes and Hills, River, and Down Hill. Besides providing driving energy to Eco Robot, Hybrid Robot has to take Wind Turbine Propeller from Eco Robot and climb up Wind Turbine Pole in order to assemble Wind Turbine.
