Sumo Robot based on NXT
Not much to say. I love my LEGO Mindstorms.
First Attempt ver 3.0 started as a basic Parallax Sumobot. I modified it to take 6 NiMH battries and silicone tires. Because of the added traction, I added a wheelie bar so First Attempt 3.0 would not lift it's front plow. From there I added a 13 gauge steel plow to help bring the weight near the 500 gm limit. Next I added side looking IR to help detect opponents faster. The code is modified from the Parallax book "Applied Robotics with the SumoBot". This code is more advanced than the basic SumoBot code.
Lego NXT robot with advanced PID control, extra line sensors and big wheels. Oh, and it hasn't been built yet! It should be ready...just in time.
After thinking about this, I seem to remember someone else using this name. If you've used this name in the past and plan on re-entering that robot, let me know and I'll come up with another name.
Evil mini-sumos live in fear! Bat-sumo is here!
Bat-sumo is a Solorbotics Sumovore. It plays the theme to the movie Batman when it starts up (thanks to Hallmark and a transistor). The Solorbotics code has been sightly modified to accomodate turning on the music.
Parllax SumoBot e/w modified power PCB to get the best from NiMH batteries.
Treaded TableTop Bot with a little kick- Two spring-loaded darts will greet visitors at iHobby a a demonstration. Can also be used as a line follower.
I got addicted to robotics through LEGO(R) MINDSTORMS RIS, originally interested in the concept of moving LEGO. Later, I taught myself NQC (Not Quite C), a C-based programming language to suppliment (Replace) the weak programming environment included. For my 14th birthday, I recieved LEGO Mindstorms NXT much to my surprise. Since, I have discovered Chibots. Since my 1st meeting, I have been working with the Tabletop Advanced competition and Basic Line Following with mixed success.
