There’s still time to enter!
Although the June 13th registration deadline has passed, there are still
a few spots open for serious teams to enter this revolutionary robotic
event! Don’t let this opportunity pass you by — sign up to participate in
SERVO Magazine’s powered exoskeleton competition! Choose from
three different challenges.
Weightlifting. Ascend stairs in your suit to the lifting
platform and lift a load of from 100 to 1,000 lbs* from a
squatting position to a height of at least 24 inches*, return
the load to the ground in a controlled manner, and
descend the stairs. Stair-climbing may be unpowered. The
winner is the competitor who lifts the most weight.
Dexterity. Stack nine concrete cylinders weighing about
70 pounds each in a 4-3-2 vertical arrangement, but don't
knock them over as the pyramid grows! The winner is the
competitor who arranges the cylinders in the shortest
Walking Race. Walk the 100 foot* long U-shaped
challenge course, stepping over a small obstacle at the
half-way point. The shortest time wins, with a time bonus
being granted based on any auxillary load carried. Walking
must be powered.
