Putting it together

For testing and initial competition purposes, the arena should be set up as individual lanes.


For a maze, the arena can be configured into a maze that can be navigated in sequence. The following is an example. Note that this includes the “ant farm” stack on the left, where robots must survive a drop from one level to the next. arena-oblique-small

The arena is supported by 50 x 100 mm cross section timber. It is recommended that for this configuration, the wall sections that are left over be screwed over the joins between the arena pallets for rigidity.

The following quantity of timber is recommended.

  • 8x 50 x 100 x 1,200 mm timber.
  • 16x 50 x 100 x 600 mm timber.
