The Appalachian SumoBot competition is returning this semester. Robotic 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. Your goal is to create a sumo-bot, that can push its opponent out of the arena before being pushed out of the arena by the competing sumo-bot. There are specific rules and regulations when entering either the LEGO category or the Open category, for the materials with which you can create your sumo-bot. Deadline for online registration is Tuesday, March 26th. The event itself takes places on Saturday, April 6th from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a lunch break.
