In the early 1760s, mankind entered an extremely important period in the course of scientific and technological development: First Industrial Revolution. With the emergence of the steam engine, machines started to replace humans while large factories started to replace individual hand workshops. The rapid growth of productivity stimulated demands for transportation, and correspondingly canals, hard pavements and even railways appeared. Meanwhile, the replacement of charcoal with coal reduced the cost of iron making, while the growth in iron and steel output made the construction of large-scale steel structures possible.

In the WER contest, robots designed by competing teams will impersonate miners, architects and workers of that age to carry out mining, road building, transportation, smelting, building and other tasks, or even help Watt to improve the steam engine, so as to propel human beings entry into the Industrial Age.
