Registration and conditions of participation

You can register for RoboRAVE Germany  online

Register for RoboRAVE workshops and courses on the respective pages in the phaenovum course list.

No, only teams of at least 2 but no more than 4 members can compete.

Attend one of the courses offered by phaenovum to meet a few kindred spirits.

Contact your school to find out if it has an IT or robotics club or whether there are any teachers who are actively involved in this area. That would also be a good place to ask whether anybody might be interested in joining you (and others) to compete in RoboRAVE Germany.

This does not apply to the online competition RoboRAVE Cyberspace.

We’re always busy planning new workshops and courses, even during the current school year. We recommend subscribing to the phaenovum newsletter to get all the latest information about new courses being offered.

Contact your school to find out if it has an IT or robotics club or whether there are any teachers who are actively involved in this area. Teachers are generally thrilled about having enthusiastic pupils and will help promote their efforts.

The RoboRAVE Germany robotic competition is organised by phaenovum. phaenovum offers workshops and courses to assist potential RoboRAVE Germany competitors.

Participation in the workshops or courses probably won’t be quite enough to prepare you for the RoboRAVE competition. Teams (together with their coaches) will have to prepare for the competition on their own.

No, attendance at the courses is not a prerequisite for participating in the competition.

The robot also has to be built by the participants. However a very simple robot with a differential drive, which is the basic model described in the standard kits, is ideal for the a-MAZE-ing and Jousting Challenges.

Phaenovum has LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3 robots as well as Makeblock mBot robots. These are reserved for the courses, however. You will need your own robot (kit) to compete in RoboRAVE.

No. You will need your own robot (kit) to compete in RoboRAVE.

Generally speaking, yes they will be. However if you’re preparing to compete in RoboRAVE Germany, we also recommend bringing your own robot. For more information, please refer to the course description or ask the teacher of the course.

Open platform means that any robot (kit) is permitted, regardless of the manufacturer, up to a total retail value of EUR 1,500. This is something we’d like to stress because many robotic competitions are promoted by the manufacturers themselves and limited to their own models. We’re independent!

Contact your school to find out if it has an IT or robotics club or whether there are any teachers who are actively involved in this area. Many schools have already purchased robot kits and the teachers are happy if they’re finally being put to use (again).

There are only coaches at RoboRAVE International. Those are adults who support one or more teams (as a trainer/coach). However they, themselves, are not members of the team. Every team at RoboRAVE International has to have an adult coach. We want to eliminate this restriction at RoboRAVE Germany. That means we want to make it possible for youths to form a team without an adult coach. As the organisers of RoboRAVE Germany, however, we still need one contact per team. This contact is the team manager. Nevertheless, we’re still thrilled about every adult who coaches a team!

The basic rule is: RoboRAVE is all about having fun and learning - and learning that learning is fun! Winning is secondary!

Your team has to be able to score points on their own at the competition. That means they will be on their own on the playing field. Of course as their coach, you can help your team prepare and assist them between scored rounds.

Select the right challenge for your team. For beginners, we recommend “Jousting” and “a-MAZE-ing”.

Every team gets its own account. This account is later important for the submission of programs. But even before the competition the account offers numerous possibilities, e.g. saving programs. To get an account a registration of a team by a manager is necessary. This takes place under my.roborave.de/registration.php

The access data is displayed to the manager in the manager portal at my.roborave.de in the sidebar under the menu item Team Name - RoboRAVE Cyberspace.

Every team can submit solutions from the 1st day of the competition. These solutions will then be evaluated promptly, so that feedback can be given before the final submission.

In principle, there is no limit to the total number of submissions. However, in order to ensure a timely response, only one solution per challenge and division may be submitted per hour.


If you are logged into OpenRoberta with your team's account, a new icon (cloud icon) will appear in the menu bar at the top of the page. By clicking on "Submit Solution" a new window will open where you can enter your challenge and division and your solution will be marked for evaluation.

In the manager portal at my.roborave.de you can find an overview of all submitted programs in the sidebar under the menu item Teamname - Submitted Programs. In the column Rating you can see the rating status. If there is already an evaluation, click on the entry to see more information.

Please contact us as soon as possible by e-mail to wettbewerb@roborave.de with your team name.

Some sensors are not usable in the simulation and a corresponding warning appears. They are intended to be used on a real robot. Therefore, these sensors are not usable for RoboRAVE Cyberspace.

Only the infrared sensor does not generate a warning , does not work and slows down the simulation. Please use the ultrasonic sensor instead.

In the Rainbow Challenge HS the two colours orange and violet are recognised as grey. This is because they are not included in the predefined colours of Open Roberta Lab. But the problem can be solved by using RGB values.

To do this, you have to go to the "Experts" section of Open Roberta Lab. You can access this by clicking on the two with the asterisk at the top of the programming area.

 

When you are in the expert area, some more programming block sections appear, including the "Lists" section.

 

 

 In the list block you can then specify the RGB value, the first number with the red value, the second number with the green value and the third with the blue value. All colour values for the paths of the Rainbow Challenge HS can be found in the rules.

To compare the value with the detected value, under "Sensors" you have to select the block "give colour colour sensor port x" and set colour to RGB.

 

 

With the logic block "=" you can then compare the two values.
