The AC Robotics Sumobots League, is a project in which beginners can learn and apply the fundamentals of engineering.
Team members pair up in small groups and design, manufacture, and program a sumobot starting from a simple idea and finishing with a complete product. Everything from the base design, to the electrical circuits, and even the software will be handled by each team member.
Inspired by real life Japanese Sumo wrestlers, sumobot matches will take place with two sumobots, and each robot will try to push the other one out of the ring.
These Sumobots are made with off the shelf parts, allowing for the skills and experienced gained here to be directly applicable to personal hobbyist type projects.
