3. Freestyle

Remark: The organizers tried to describe the tasks and assessments as good and fair as possible, but all teams should be aware of that we might need to modify the rules before or even during the contest! These ad hoc changes will always be decided by the jury members.


Teams are invited to let their real robot perform a freestyle operation at their home institution or in the virtual environments or on the events venue. The explanation as well as the performance shall be transmitted online via internet to the jury and the spectators. The team has to explain the idea and the machine. Comments during the robot’s performance are also welcome.

Creativity and fun are required for this task as well as an application-oriented performance. The freestyle task should be related to an agricultural application. Teams will have a time limit of five minutes for the presentation including the robot’s performance.


The jury will assess by points P the

  • P1 : agronomic idea (originality)
  • P2 : technical complexity
  • P3 : robot performance

Points P will be given from 0 (insufficient) to 10 (excellent) for each criterion (P1, P2 and P3). The total points will be calculated using the following formula:

Pfinal points = P1 + P2 + 2 P3            (double weighing on performance)
