    WRO® RoboMission (Regular) FAQ

    Question Answer
    WRO® RoboMission (Regular) – Playfield/Run
    1. What is the colour of the side panels of the board that holds the playfield? It is not confirmed at this point, but they are typically of a single colour. Color of these should not matter (they are there to prevent robots from falling off and getting damaged).
    2. The ladybug is to be moved away from its position. Can the ladybug be shifted to the robot start point at end of the mission? Does this consider valid and award points? Technically, yes. Following the rules, as long as ladybug is completely outside route area (black, white, green areas) and standing, 5 points will be awarded. Please note ladybug must be on the play field (no points if ladybug is picked up and remains on robot). 
    3. How tall will the wall of the playfield be? In General Rules, the minimum height is 5 cm.
    4. For the secondary category, how the water will be required to put out the fire? Placing a water object in the correct room (room with fire object) accomplishes the task (max. 1 water object per room) See page 11-12 Secondary Category Game Rules.
    5. What is the time allowed to work on surprise rule? When/if will they be introduced during prelim/finals? What is the format? Surprise rules introduced at beginning of each game day. Participants will have approximately 2hrs to work on it.
    6. How many teams will be sharing a single playfield on the day of competition? Depends on number of registered teams in total.
    7. For junior/secondary category, when will the starting base be released? Is it possible for it to be changed during the day? This is referring to Secondary category randomization of start area. Will be informed at start of day. Please also note that for this category, start and end areas are different – see page 10 of Game Rules for Secondary.
    8. How many runs will each team get for qualifying round? How many trial runs will each team get? General Rules, Section 8 & 9. A number of practice runs, followed by actual robot run. Note that each robot run is 2 mins.
    Practice runs is constrained by practice time given, which is in the region of 10-15 mins per team.
    9. Is the Service Point model glued to the playing mat? No. Note that service point (primary category) base needs to remain entirely within grey area. Page 8, Primary Game Rules.
    10. Can the team’s coach/mentor be with the teams during the time to work on surprise rule? No. Randomization and surprise rules are meant to test participants’ ability to adapt, and to gauge to what extent they have understood and learnt the principles of their robots’ operations. Gen Rules, page 12.
    11. Is Spike Prime core set enough for the competition? Robot abilities will be limited but it is up to the team.
    12. Do teams need to dismantle their robots during the Grand Finals robot game? No.
    13. Where can we download or purchase the playfield mat? You may purchase the playfield mat via the distributors.
    For downloading of the mat, you can refer to WRO website
    2022 Season - WRO Association (wro-association.org)
    Under: GAME FIELD
    WRO® RoboMission (Regular) – Robot
    1. Can we use nxt sensors? Yes. Gen Rules page 9 allows.
    2. Can we rebuild our robot after the presentation if we decide to make another design for the robot before the robot run? Yes. The design and engineering process is reiterative!
    3. Will it be legal for us to bring extra materials to be placed on our robots for the run? Depends on what participant means by “extra materials”. Only materials stated in General Rules allowed.
    4. Can you confirm that hitechnic sensors is allowed (with ev3), as mentioned in the international rule? Gen Rules page 9: HiTechnic color sensors are allowed.
    5. Are cloning robots allowed? Not allowed. See RoboMission challenge booklet point 3: Responsibilities and team’s own work.
    6. Is there any limitation for motor? Gen Rules page 9: number of motors or sensors not limited.
    7. Can robot inventor 51515 be used? NRC website says yes Yes. Item #51515 is the Lego Mindstorms Robot Inventor. Gen Rules page 9 table allows.
    8. Is there a limit to how much cameras I could build for the robot? No.
    9. Can Lego Spike be used to build the robot? No. Participant probably asking about Spike Essential: not allowed as not in list, page 9, Gen Rules.
    10. Can I build a robot which has 2 or more Lego Brains? No. Gen Rules page 9. Only 1 controller.

    2. Will there be a playfield in the presentation venue? Yes.
    3. Do we need to show codes in presentation? Gen Rules page 16: Scoring for Presentation: under Programming, if participants are able to show that they have fulfilled the criteria, points will be awarded accordingly.
    4. Do we need to have a physical 3D robot for the presentation, or can it be 2D? Participant’s choice. Again, as it is on-site competition, having actual robot (instead of “2D” graphic of robot, we presume?) helps judges’ scoring.
    5. Will other participants be there to view our presentation live in the presentation room? No.
    6. Is it fixed slot for presentation? Yes, schedule will be drawn up.
    7. Can teams remove their masks during presentation? No (although rules will adhere to local measures and hence subject to any updates)
    8. Is the presentation round also at Science Centre? Yes.
    9. Apart from showcasing their physical robot for robot game, is the team expected to present on their robot game strategy, robot design, build and coding process? Yes. The processes are important for judges to gauge participants’ learning journey. It also helps to demonstrate originality of work i.e., not just a solution given by mentor.  
    10. How will the presentations be conducted? Judges go from table to table for each team? Presentations are conducted in rooms, with judges and students in the room. Screens and VGA/ HDMI cables will be provided for presentation projections.
    11. Under the Presentation of the robotic solution, is it referring to:
    a. the robotic solution to the garden problem the team is presenting on?  OR
    b. the development process of robot designing, building, and coding their robot for robot game? 
    Both. Participants should showcase both their developmental processes as well as the solution. For example, they could even show how certain versions have failed, and how they eventually decided on the particular solution they’re presenting.
