WRO platform policy
World Robot Olympiad operates with a single platform policy. This means that WRO only allows use of the LEGO MINDSTORMS robotics platform for WRO Regular Category (Elementary, Junior, Senior), and WRO GENII Football, and this policy is in place to ensure equal opportunities for all participants. Teams competing in Regular Senior Category have free choice of software they use, all other teams have to use the official LEGO MINDSTORMS Software.
All WRO competitions aim to challenge the participants to use their creativity to construct and program autonomous robots. And for this purpose WRO believes the LEGO MINDSTORMS platform is the most appropriate.
Platform specifications for all competition categories can be found in detail in the WRO General Rules document that is continually updated and is available for download here.
