Micro sumo robots must fit within a 5 cm cube, and have a mass less than 100 grams.
This is my current micro sumo project. I was going for stealth, as the other micro sumo's I compete against mount their proximity sensors very high. Currently, the only downfall is that the batteries used arn't rechargable... I plan on my next desgin to use lithuim polymers.
Denzan weighs in at 99.6 grams, runs the motors at 12volts when oponent is spotted (6v when searching), and was a lot of fun to build!
Components and Parts:
1 'Megabitty' micro robot controller
2 'techmaxx 1A' gear motors
1 Line 'Megabitty' line sensor
1 Proximity 'Megabitty' proximity sensor
2 6v lithium pile batteries (12v total madness!)
