Mini Sumo Robot Competition at San Diego State University

Philosophy

Our robot, Frank the Tank, was created with the vision of a high power mini sumobot through high torque and traction.

Torque-based design instead of speed and acceleration
Defensive and reactionary style
Four-wheeled implementation for maximum surface area, friction, and stability

Specs

25D mm Metal Gearmotors
H Bridge VNH5019 Motor Driver Carrier
Custom PCB layout
PIC32MX Series microcontroller
4 GP2Y0A21 IR Sharp Analog Distance Sensor
4 QTR-1A Reflectance Sensors
4 wheels

Sensors

The sensors we decided to go with are the QTR-1A Reflective Sensors. They have an analog output corresponding to the light reflected onto the sensor. This would allow Frank to distinguish the white line and react accordingly depending on the situation. We are using 4 sharp analog infrared sensors in order to detect the opponent's position.

Microcontroller

PIC32MX210F016B
10 ADC channels
