What are the BattleBots rules?

During a match, two robots do their best to destroy or disable each other in any way, shape or form to do so.

The match begins with a series of lights that flash from yellow to green.

Each match between the robots takes three minutes.

If a robot cannot move for ten seconds, because it is too badly damaged or it is stuck, it is declared knocked out.

The winner is then decided when a robot gets damaged in the process.

It was filmed across the course of two weeks, with its original air date of May 2020 being pushed back to December 2020, due to the pandemic.

The BattleBox is a 48′ x 48′ square arena designed to protect the drivers, officials, and audience from flying debris and charging bots.

Originally designed by Pete Lampertson, it has a steel floor and steel-framed walls and roof panelled with bulletproof polycarbonate plastic.

The teams bring their robots in through doorways, which are sealed after everyone has left the arena.

The drivers control their machines from outside the sealed arena.
