  1. The track surface and course line may have unevenness.
  2. There will be certain obstacles in the race track which will try to slow down the robot.
  3. Arena will consist of a switch bridge, speed breakers, marble pit, slippery path (by grease), rotating ring disc, curve ramp down, seesaw etc.
