Team 08 - Sumo Bot A

Team Meeting Minutes

Sumo Robot Competition

Two robots compete in a head-to-head match following the basic system of traditional human sumo matches. Robots are allowed no weapons, and are not allowed to flip each other. The sole purpose is a pushing match between the two robots to force the other from the arena. In addition to the sumo robot competition our team will be designing a combat robot. A combat robot is allowed to possess weapons and destroy other robots.
