Mini Sumo Robot with no Microcontroller

at 10:12 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, Toy Hacks


This mini sumo robot was developed without using a microcontroller. Using circuits as an alternative to a microcontroller makes its implementation cost efficient since there isn’t much to it. Watch the video to see the machine demonstrated against a stationary object (I guess actual robot testing is the next step). Best of all there is no programmer needed to make a change, just tweak the detection wings a bit and you are ready to test. If you are eager to find how it was made you can go through read about it here.

“Bottom panel’s height can be adjusted. This allows the skirt to be moved close to the floor, preventing opponents from wedging under 
-To save cost even the battery connectors were homemade. By taking apart two used 9-volt batteries, I was able to solder wires to the top pieces and use them as connectors
-Total price: 15$, way better then buying a kit

-Super sticky wheels are made using foam tape covered with exercise band material. The foam tape compresses to allow for more surface contact, and the band’s rubber sticks to the floor”.
