Purpose

To detect and push opponent bots out of arena successfully. Built alongside talented partner.

How I built it

Built from scratch using 3D printed parts and custom PCBs, Programmed in PIC BASIC Pro. Kept design low profile and highly modular, by utilizing a friction fit board holding design and jumper wires to connect separated motherboard, motor and sensor PCB's.

Challenges I ran into

Due to the highly modular nature of the project, there ended up being some connection issues due to the lack of friction in jumper wire connections.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Ended up with a semi-functional sumo bot at the end of the course.

What's next for Sumo Bot

It will be a nice shelf showpiece.
