Robots Against COVID-19 Student contest rules by Rozum Robotics

Description

Rozum Robotics has announced contest among university and college students on how a robotic arm (or its components — servo motors) can help humanity in the face of global epidemics.

This contest is a real chance to change the world and improve people's quality of life.

Prizes

The main winner will receive a prize of $1,000 and an opportunity to become an external expert at the stage of implementation of the proposed concept. If the application is submitted by a group of contestants, the prize fund will be released to the group and distributed at the discretion of the participants.

Requirements for the concept

Ideas are submitted in the form of a detailed concept product description based on PULSE robotic arm or its component, RDrive servomotor. The conceptual solution must solve one of the problems (or two at once):

  • Safety and/or health of people during global epidemics;
  • Safety and/or health of doctors during global epidemics.

Description of the concept is submitted in English or Russian.

Requirements for candidates

Single contestants as well as groups of contestants from any country may participate. At the time of application, the contestant (or contestants) must be a college or university student.

Application

The application must consist of a detailed text description of the solution based on PULSE robotic arm or RDrive servo motor.

The application must also include:

  • name and surname of the author(s);
  • email;
  • mobile phone;
  • the city and country of the contestant (or contestants).

All information provided by the author when submitting the application may be updated by contacting the e-mail address: contest@rozum.com (but not later than 5 days before the application deadline).

The same contestant (or a group of contestants) may submit several applications with different ideas.

Evaluation criteria

  • Degree of concept details elaboration. We expect the concept to be clearly outlined. The benefits must be clear and obvious.
  • Technical feasibility of the project. The proposed solution must be feasible using PULSE robotic arm or RDrive servomotor.

Additional visualization of the concept. We welcome (but do not require) the most detailed presentation of the concept by any means available (as a supplement to the text description): drawings, diagrams, video, prototypes, sketches, etc.
