Mission Impossible

Mission Impossible (U19/U14)

The main goal of the mission impossible event is to provide a competition emphasizing creativity, imagination, and on the spot problem-solving skills. Teams are allowed to use a limited set of materials to construct and program a robot to solve a particular problem, such as overcoming a wall or collecting treasures on a playing field.

Introduction

The goal of this competition is to provide an event that requires students to use their imagination and creativity to solve various problems using commonly available items such as popsicles and rubber bands and simple tools such as scissors and hammers. The students are not allowed to use any other items or tools. This levels the playing field since teams with more expensive hardware do not have an automatic advantage. The game is inspired by the exploits of MacGyver (a popular American TV series in the 80s) and the Junkyard Wars reality TV shows.

Welcome to the Federation of International Robot-Sport Association

Robot soccer can be portrayed as a competition of advanced robot technology within a confined space. It offers a challenging arena to the young generation and researchers working with autonomous mobile robotic systems. It is hoped that FIRA’s flagship event, called the FIRA Robot World Cup (or the FIRA Cup in short), which started in 1996, together with many other FIRA events, will help generate interests in robotics in the young minds.

Through these events, FIRA hopes to help them better understand and appreciate, with interests, the scientific concepts and technological developments involved. FIRA believes that some of these interests will fuel scientific and engineering skills that ultimately develop into research outcomes to serve mankind in a variety of ways.

Ever since its establishment, FIRA has had venues for its annual FIRA Cup in Australia, Brazil, China, France and Korea. Making progress over successive years since 1996, FIRA Cup has now attained world recognition as a robot festival.
