This event is a sheer test of power and ability to hold ground that a robot must deliver to survive. Higher momentum is definitely a plus. This one is for the ‘man’ rather than the ‘machine’ and tests the controller’s mastery over thecontrols while the robots go head to head to put the opponent out of the ring.
This event aims to explore your creativity against another robots in a field of combat where brute strength & cat-like reflexes hold key to success.

Second : Rs. 4000
Third : Rs. 2000

4. McKennas' GOLD - Automatic (Robocon style)
Test of Precision and speed for only who can make their robots self guided without human. A legend says that a great Indian treasure is supposedly hidden in the desert. Whoever has gone to fetch it hasn’t returned. If you have it in you be the adventurous Cow boy in the unruly terrain of the Red Indians.
Save 2 people (smaller blocks) stranded in the desert and reach for the GOLD. Contestants should be made aware about the requirements before coming for the event.
First : Rs. 5000
Second : Rs. 3000
Third : Rs. 2000

This Event(Mckennas' Gold) is quite similar to robocon and is equally challenging, and it involves similar conditions like 3cm wide while line, non-black field. only exception is that the objects and robots involved are much smaller .
