Today we held the Woolwich Central School preliminary SUMO competition. Six robots competed, each with its own bit of flair (both in programming and construction). I am proud of the hard work, problem solving and determination of each of the students who participated. The winner of today's competition took a unique approach, foregoing a long distance ultrasonic sensor for a stout lifting arm activated by a touch sensor. Basically, "Honeybadger" (a perfect name!) only went into beast mode when it was right on top of its opponent, with devastating effects.
Tomorrow night's district-wide competition promises to be a lot of fun!
Until then, enjoy this time lapse video of today's action.
