The FCRFFC is a regional challenge modeled after the Trinity College Fire Fighting Home Robot Contest. It will take place at the Discovery Science Center in Fort Collins, CO (see map).
Each contestant builds a small robot to navigate a model house, like that shown at right. We'll be running two events:
For details, see the FCRFFC rules and score sheet. Also see our flyer.
Registration for the FRCFFC is now open. If you have questions or comments, please contact Joe Strout.
The FCRFFC is sponsored by the Front Range Robotics Club. We love building robots, and we're eager to help anybody who wants to give it a try.
The FCRFFC is scheduled for Saturday, March 8, 2008 from 11AM - 2PM. Participants should be there no later than 10:45. Non-participant audience members are more than welcome to come and go at any time during the event.
FCRFFC registration is now open! There is no cost to register; just fill out this form to let me know if you plan to attend. All participants must register at least 24 hours before the event, but sooner is better -- you can always contact me if you need to cancel or amend your registration info.
A list of registered participants is available.
We'll be collecting here a number of helpful links for robot builders.
