    Istrobot 2017

    Announcing 17th annual international robotic contest Istrobot! We will meet on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 as usually at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the Slovak University of Technology (STU) in Bratislava.

    Flying Challenge 2017

    As we previously announced, this category was significantly changed. An evaluation is based on points which gives more chances to the autonomous devices. That was also reason to change the obstacles. They are now more visible and much easier to detect. In addition to already allowed own navigational markers there are our, defined markings. Last, but not least, there is also a random element in the path, so the fixed, pre-programmed drone will not succeed.


    You can download poster in both Slovak and English mutations or graphics to be used on your web.


    To design and development of your robot, we offer you the licence for newest version of the MATLAB plus Simulink software with few additional toolboxes. Also you can use the hardware support for NXT, EV3, Arduino, BeagleBoard and Raspberry Pi platforms. Licence is valid for one year and all registered participants are allowed to use it.

    Categories and rules

    Robots will compete in following categories:



    The task is to construct an autonomous robot that will complete the racing track and negotiate all its pitfalls. It contains several obstacles - for example a bridge, tunnel to pass through and a brick to be avoided..



    The task is to construct a robot that can autonomously solve a maze and achieve the goal in the shortest time. When the robot tracks the right hand wall it will solve the maze, but not in the shortest possible time.


    Ketchup house

    In this category the task is to localize and sort ketchup cans in the storage. Two robots compete, winner is faster and more precise robot.



    In this category, competitors are encouraged to demonstrate their robotics creations which do not fit into other categories. The winner is appointed according to the jury judgment.


    Flying challenge

    The task is to build the flying machine which is able to float the specified track in the arena and brings the payload to the goal in the shortest time. For the first, pilot year of the contest it is allowed to use also the remote control for machines.


    Robot sprint

    In preparation. Soon...


    Common rules

    For each category also the common rules apply. They deals mainly with the safety issues and materials.
