Comments and General Information:
This was my first 'non lego' robot. As you can tell, it ain't the prettiest of subjects, but I did learn a lot in the process. I wanted to try something different that what I saw in all the other begining sumo platforms, and make it bidirectional with no front or back. I succeeded in accomplishing that task, and it ran rather nicely. However, at the Robomaxx competition in 2002, I wanted to make some 'last minute' changes and ended up sabotaging the robot so that at most it could barely 'wiggle' when the first sumo match started. Oh well.

1 lynxmotion next step board 1 javelin micro controller 2 sonar modules 6 nicads 2 hi torque servos custom cut graphite base 4 hamamatsu photoreflectors (line detection) WAY to much extra wire
