    hi,
    If you have specific Rules about the competition Robot, WHY do you keep asking for general motor information.??

    Its a 24V 10Amp motor at my best guess, BTW a maximum weight 25Kg is plenty for a 200Watt motor and housing.

    Hi again,
    I think i don't asked about general motor and the wt. of robot should not exceed 25kg not motor.

    This is the only referance I have seen as to the manual operater riding the robot.
    "3.1 Manual Robot’s operator rides on Manual Robot before the game starts."
    So other than the game start the operator does not need to be on the robot.
    I fact in the videos for years past the operators walk behind the robot.
    Can you clarify the rule of the operater riding the robot?

    I mean to say that the person should be removed and robot should be operated by remote control.

    hi,
    The demo video that Rittesh posted shows for part of the competition it has to carry the guy who is controlling it, the remainder of the demo shows remote control

    Yes and the rules are unclear as to the rider. If the robot only has to be ridden at the start and then the rider gets off then the robot does to need to be so strong. If the ridder is going to stay on the hole time, than the robot will need to be much stronger.

    Is someone going to ride on your manual robot or not? Will thay be on it the hole time? Or just at the start? If you can explain what you want to do then maybe we can help you.

    I have already post the you tube video which tell all the step and theme of the play....
    I think the rider has to move manual robot for few minutes without stepping feet to the stage...

    You need to find two motors as big as you can and gear them down to a few hundred RPMs. 24 volt may be best, but you can get by with 12 volt motors.
    All the power will be in the gearing.

    With gears. Small ones towards the motors and larger ones towards the wheels. That gives you mechanical advantage.
