Robo sumo is a competition where two robots, known as sumo-bots, attempt to push each other out of an arena using sensors, clever programming, and innovative design. The sumo-bot that pushes the opponent out of the area is considered the winner.
Besides the usual LEGO challenge targeted for schools, this year an open category is being introduced for the general public. Any preferred technology can be used as long as the sumo-bots abide by the rules and regulations.
This challenge is played in tournament style whereby each battle consists of three rounds. The player who wins two games passes for the next phase of the tournament. For more info check the rules and regulations.
