2017 GAME - Crossfire

  •  Crossfire Theme: Over the years, BEST Inc. has ventured into a wide variety of industries: From underground mining to space exploration - and everything in-between. Throughout its diverse pursuits, BEST has kept safety the number one priority. In line with this, BEST has announced an organization-wide Fire Safety Initiative. Mostly the initiative involves fire prevention through new and improved safety policies, but BEST has also started a Research and Development program to explore robot intervention in industrial fire emergencies. Your company is invited to submit a robot prototype to be evaluated alongside other prototypes in a state-of-the-art Industrial Fire Simulator. Besides their performance in the simulations, companies will be evaluated based on the quality of their project documentation, sales presentation, company exhibit, and even their company culture and business ethics. Robots will not be able to touch the fire directly - in order to extinguish it, they need to launch simulated water from a distance. The highest priority is rescuing the test manikin from inside. Just like in a real rescue, every second counts; robots will receive more points if they complete the rescue in less time. Design and build a prototype robot to rescue a fire test manikin, contain the dangerous chemicals, and extinguish the flames during a three-minute match. A robot can score points by doing the following: (a) Rescuing the Manikin (b) Containing the Chemical Drums (c) Extinguishing the Flames
