Parallax Sumo-Bot Robot

   The Sumobot Robot by Parallax is a competition-ready robot designed within the Northwest Robot Mini-Sumo Tournament rules. It comes as a kit that takes you from building to programming your own sumo robot. And if you think one robot is interesting, wait until you see two of them battling for control Sumo-style.

  This little pusher will locate and knock its opponent right out of the ring while detecting the outside circle should an escape move be necessary. The electronics consists of a surface-mounted BASIC Stamp« 2 module and infrared sensors to detect your opponent and the edge of the Sumo Ring. The hardware package includes the black anodized aluminum chassis and scoop, servo motors, wheels, 4AA power pack (batteries not included) mounting standoffs and screws.
The included documentation takes you from basic moves to one-on-one combat. The general topics introduced in the SumoBot Manual are as follows:
  • Basic SumoBot locomotion under program control.
  • Edge avoidance and opponent detection based on a variety of sensor inputs.
  • Navigation opponent seeking using programmed artificial intelligence.
   The company also offers a complete Sumobot Competition Kit that includes two SumoBot kits, a sumo arena poster, and everything you need to build and host your own sumo style wrestling matches.
The Sumobot Competition Kit Contains:
  • Two SumoBot robots to assemble, with a development board with surface-mounted BASIC Stamp 2
  • Infrared sensors, LEDs, Piezo speakers, resistors, and pushbuttons
  • SumoBot Manual with assembly and testing instructions
  • Applied Robotics with the SumoBot Stamps in Class text
  • Parallax USB to Serial (RS-232) Adapter with Cable
  • Serial programming cable
  • Parallax CD
  • SumoBot Robot Competition Ring poster
  • Screwdriver

The Sumo-Bot is made by

Parallax Inc.


Here are a few videos of the SumoBot.
