    In ROBOTIX 2011, RoboCop was the event which was designed to test the robot's ability on how it's able to identify the criminals from civilians.In Pirate Bay, robots do have multiple arms and propellers to dig through sand and pebbles. And Fugitive event where wireless communication was used to process the bots.
