Robo-Sumo is a Sumo Robotics Workshop which is all about autonomous sumo wrestling robots. It is basically similar to the traditional wrestling between two opponents (robots) within a confined ring/arena. The robots will be engaged in combat until one is disabled or removed from the ring. A robot is considered to be removed from the ring when any of its wheel are over the edge, demonstrating its Edge Detector Algorithm. When placed in their starting position, the robots will not be facing each other. This will allow the robot to demonstrate its searching algorithm based on obstacle detection. The participating robots are designed & developed as multi-functionality robots using analog IR sensors. The IR sensor used here are basically reflectance sensor which are a type of active IR sensor. The pair consist of an IR transmitter (LED) & IR receiver (Photodiode). Both the sensors are arranged in such a way that that light from emitter LED bounces off an external object and is reflected back into photodiode. Amount of light reflected into the receiver depends upon the reflectivity of the surface. IR sensors are basically implemented for obstacle avoidance & edge detection purpose. The Workshop mainly focuses on conceptualization and designing of sumo robot which will help the students to meet their ever awaited wish on "How to build a Sumo Robot??".

The Workshop includes a detailed study structure, delivered & demonstrated live by our experts in the field of Robotics. Designing a Sumo robot is one of the most interesting implementation of robotics. It is a competition between two robots. The objective is to protect oneself and push the other opponent out of the arena. The robot that stays longer is declared as the winner.

We at ABLab Solutions would get you closer to the basic robotics domain right from the fundamentals to its implementation to successfully design & develop a sumo robot.
