Certified Robots


Even beginners can purchase a robot and immediately participate in tournaments!


ROBO-ONE holds the ROBO-ONE Light tournament that allows commercially available robots certified by the ROBO-ONE Committee (certified robots) to participate as long as they are not modified. This makes it easy for even beginners to participate in the tournament.

Self-built and modified robots must weigh 1 kg or less and meet other strict conditions.
This allows commercially available robots to compete on a level or better playing field with self-built robots controlled by experienced operators.

Program Objectives


With the technologies and techniques of participants in ROBO-ONE tournaments getting better on a near daily basis, the barrier for beginners has gotten high. The ROBO-ONE Light tournament has introduced the certified robot program and is held to provide the opportunity for beginners to battle it out with seasoned operators on a level playing field. It is intended to encourage beginners to build their own robots and further vitalize the market.

ROBO-ONE Light is a tournament that makes it easy for even beginners to participate because it gives commercially available robots registered under the certified robot program a handicap against modified and self-built robots. Commercially available robots registered under the certified robot program do not need to conform with regulations on weight, sole size, arm length, center of gravity position, etc., as long as they are not modified. Self-built robots, however, must weigh no more than 1 kg and meet the rest of the “Robot Regulations” for sole size, arm length, center of gravity position, etc. stated in official competition rules for ROBO-ONE tournaments.

How to Register Certified Robots (for Manufacturers)


Manufacturers who would like to register the robots they sell commercially as certified robots must first join the Biped Robot Association.
Details are available on the Association’s website.
