Sumo Bots

From Claremont MakerSpace

A Sumo contest involves two contestants who operate robots, that they have made themselves, by having the robots push their opponent out of the sumo ring (Dohyo) according to the game rules presented here. The individual contest continues until two Yuko points are scored by one of the contestants.

The overall contest is structured using a double elimination tournament format, where each robot must lose two matches to be eliminated from the tournament.

This page will contain links to the arduino code used in the CMS Sumo bot class and downloadable versions of the templates.

All of this is a riff on Jay Francis' 2020 Bot - Instructible.
