  • SeaPerch Kits in Regional

    Have the participated teams in regional to use the Seaperch ROV kits or they can develop their own one?

  • #2
    Nourhan Teams may use the standard kit ROV or design and create their own unique ROV provided they adhere to the posted design rules.
    Please see 2020 Competition Classes and Design Rules Matrix at https://www.seaperch.org/2020challenge
    You should also check with your local competition coordinator for rules that may differ from the rules for the International SeaPerch Challenge.

      Thanks for clarification!

      In this item in the design rule "budget, the modification is less or more than 25$ according to the class", I wonder if the team creates his own ROV the limitation on the budget in the international what will be ?!
      If I think right, it may be total cost of SeaPerch kit + the cost of modification limit?

        Nourhan All rules posted on the website are for the International Challenge.
        Te budget applies to anything you use that is not part of the SeaPerch kit. If you make your own frame then you must include the total cost of your frame.

          Hello,

          I wonder if the seaperch motors are mandatory to be used in the ROV or it is okay to use any thruster types?!

              The stock SeaPerch motors must be used in the regional competition or in the international only?
              In addition, can the teams use the (Jameco Electronics 232022) from any stock or they must buy it from SeaPerch stock?

                Nourhan The Jameco Electronics 232022 motors are the only motors allowed in the International Challenge. You should check with the regional competition where you plan to compete.
                Teams may purchase the motors from other sources.

                    Nourhan What are you referring to by a Relay? Solid-state relays are not allowed in the Stock Classes. Any simple On/Off switches, i.e. toggle, pushbutton, rocker, etc. are allowed.

                      I refer to the electromagnetic relays! and using microcontroller and motors drivers are allowed?
                      Also what about using pneumatic system in gripper if the team uses it?

                        Nourhan Microcontrollers are allowed in Open Class only. Pneumatic systems are allowed in all classes but stock classes have a budget limit.
                        Please review the 2020 Competition Classes and Design Rules Matrix https://www.seaperch.org/action/docu...ocument_id=771

                              Nourhan Yes, in Open Class only. It has to run off battery power. "Teams may not bring anything to the pool deck that requires 110-volt power." https://www.seaperch.org/2020PoolRules
