Important Rule Updates!

Teams must read the complete rules to ensure they fully understand the rule changes we have made. This page is simply a summary of changes. Questions regarding Lego challenges should be emailed to orclego@gmail.com and Arduino challenges to orcarduino@gmail.com.

Green Arm Challenge

  • Once no bins are left to be sorted, teams must ensure their robotic arm stops.

General Lego Rules

  • Judges must be able to check the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi status of your robot at any time

Carleton University Sumo

  • Teams can only switch programs between matches (i.e. they must use the same program for all bouts of a match)
  • There are no angle restrictions for movement following the initial 3-second delay

Drag Race

  • Interference can now occur anytime beyond the start line

da Vinci

  • Guides can only be placed on the edge of the canvas
  • Robots that die in the middle of canvas must restart from the designated edge

Mini-Golf

  • Any remote wireless device will be permitted
  • Rules surrounding the changing of the team member in control of the robot, scoring when the ball gets stuck, and when time stops have been clarified
  • Breaking of the middle wall in the middle will result in disqualification
  • There is now a 5-minute time limit


  • Our Vision

      The IEEE Ottawa Robotics Competition aims to expose grade 5 to 12 students to STEM fields through a multidimensional approach.
