sumo bot

Postby patchido » Mon Apr 05, 2010 6:31 pm

well, basically i just wanted to have some feedback regarding sumobots i have to make one and i am trying to cover all aspects of it, and i believe i could gets some ideas from the lejos community

RULES:

3 mins per round, if robot is turned over it loses
if robot gets kicked out of round it loses
after the 3 mins are over, the robot nearest to the center wins

MY IDEAS:

gearbox(more power)
as many wheels as possible(traction)
anchors( some beams so i wont get turned over)
ultrasonic sensor( know if the objective is in front)
2 light sensors( one in front and another and in the back)
ramp in front( if possible i want this ramp to be moving backwards and thrusting forward for pushing)


:D thx

Well have a look at:

Maybe this can help you devise a strategy.

It'd really be great if you can get some video of the event -- I assume you'll have a competition.
