The creators also given free choice of ways to control the robot. Competitions were held in three categories.
Robots were required to undergo two-meter distance of no more than 5 minutes. The second category – to “shoot” and knock down plastic cups, which are candy TIROL-CHOCO. Third – carrying heavy loads, ie candy, who uploaded the participants in the competition another robot.
