Robots moved on the platform along the lines, avoiding obstacles and following arrows trying hard to reach the final goal. By the end of round one, only 15 robots managed to perform to successfully lead their teams to the final round.
Round two for the undergraduate category was held on the 14th of September, 2011. The most successful 15 robots were again brought on to stage with their teams.

Each team were given three trials. All robots that made their way to round two were all very efficient. The teams whose robots’ proved to be the best among the best performing robots, emerged winners of round two – the undergraduate category of Robofest 2012.
