This thesis discussed the mobile land robots for the robotic competitions. The topics discussed in this thesis are robotic systems, mobile land robots, robot competitions, and example of robot designs. Question-answer sections are added to help understand the requirements to build the robot. Examples include three different teams who participated in different robotic competitions to provide a context for robotic competitions. The thesis was divided into the five chapters. The first and second chapters explained the different kind of robotics systems, and opportunities. The focus of the information was the mobile land robots, which was explained under the third chapter, mobile land robots. The aim of the thesis was to guide those who want to design, build, and compete in the mobile robot competition. As a result, the information from various resources been gathered and has been given a form of thesis to help individuals or group of individuals to guide them through the robotic competitions.
