This little pusher will locate and knock its opponent right out of the ring while detecting the outside circle should an escape move be necessary.

The electronics consists of a surface-mounted BASIC Stamp® 2 module and infrared sensors to detect the opponent and the edge of the Sumo Ring. The hardware package includes the black anodized aluminum chassis and scoop, servo motors, wheels, 4AA power pack (batteries not included) mounting standoffs and screws. The documentation takes you from basic moves to one-on-one combat.

The general topics introduced in the SumoBot Manual are as follows:

  • Basic SumoBot locomotion under program control
  • Edge avoidance and opponent detection based on a variety of sensor inputs
  • Navigation opponent seeking using programmed artificial intelligence

Each topic is addressed in an introductory format designed to impart a conceptual understanding along with some hands-on experience.

Find more SumoBot activities in the Stamps in Class text Applied Robotics with the SumoBot , including friction analysis, self-calibrating sensors, memory optimization with multipurpose variables and a sensor flags register, and state-machine diagrams for sensor-based navigation. EEPROM data logging lets you record your robot's sensor and program states during a match, then display them afterward in the BASIC Stamp Editor's Debug Terminal - an excellent way to troubleshoot and analyze the performance of your program strategies.
