  • Accomodation
    We don't provide any accomodation not the reservation for participants. We can recommend following accomodation for reasonable price. It has got sufficient capacity and it can be easily reached from the contest place also by public transport (bus No. 32).

  • Curtain measurement
    Measurement with both ultrasonic and infrared sensors showed no significant difference between the curtain and solid wall (sensors used -- Parallax PING ))) and Sharp GP 2Y0A21):

  • 26. 4. Istrobot  2014
    15th annual international robotic contest Istrobot will be again at the Slovak Univerity of Technology in Bratislava on April 26th.
    Registration is open!

  • Linefollower
    This year we change the linefollower contest. First important change is that robot has to return home from the end of the track. Second important change is an introduction of the three-level difficulty system: based on the place where the robot will decide to return home, the robot will be awarded in one of the three levels. We also introduce new obstacles and the track will change slightly between runs. What we want to see are really autonomous robots and not precisely tuned mechanisms for the specific track.

  • Ketchup house
    In the category Ketchup House you will encounter more cans. Robots can fight for 5 cans which will be completed during the match to the total number of 12.




    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.

    Volna jazda


    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.

    Common rules

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