SumoBoy is a professional fight robot, made in accordance to international Mini Sumo robot competition rules and ready for real tournaments. It can be customized and programmed for changing tactics in arena. The Robot has an Arduino microcontroller as its brain, so it can be used for educational purposes in order to learn the basics of C and C++ languages. We are offering the Sumo Kit with an actual robot and set of electronic parts for education purposes. You can take the Arduino microcontroller from the robot, put it on prototyping board and start to program it, playing with LEDs, DC motors, and sensors.
SumoBoy was created by a team of robotics enthusiasts who are building robots and engaging in tournaments for more than 10 years. Our team has won all the major competitions all over the world (Europe, USA, Japan, etc.) and SumoBoy serves as a next big step in our dedication to make robot sumo competitions more popular and the robots – more available and affordable. We all are educated and qualified engineers, with many years of experience in electronics and robot technology.
The sumo robot battle takes place in a circular arena. Robots are operating autonomously. The objective of the robot is to push its opponent out of the ring.
By using sensors the robot seeks the opponent while avoiding the white line surrounding the arena.
SumoBoy uses one of the previously programmed battle strategies.
SumoBoy locates its opponent. It turns its ''blade'' against the opponent. The processor ''makes'' a decision.
High quality silicone wheels guarantee a perfect grip with the surface while low center of gravity keeps the robot on the ground.
Robot that has managed to push its opponent entirely out of the ring wins the match!
SumoBoy can be used also for educational purposes. We have made a special set, which helps to learn the basics of C and C++ languages of electronics and programming. It consists of the robot, mounting plates, engines, sensors, light diodes and other electronic parts that are necessary for the learning process. Therefore this set can be as well used in schools and electronics clubs.
Most of the robot parts are made by RobotNest team. Rest of them are being designed and outsourced strictly by our specifications.
Wheels, silicon tyres, armor plates, frontal blade, base plate and wheel discs are all made by our own hands
All in one box.
Everything you need for learning, programming, experimenting and ultimately taking part in the robot tournaments.
We have been building robots and coding for almost 10 years. During the last 5 years we have been working on the sumo robot technology. Together we spend loads of time trying to find and figure out ways to make our devices do new and exciting things.
We are peers, colleagues and friends. Together we spend loads of time trying to find and figure out ways how to make our devices do new and exciting things.
Being true friends, peers, and colleagues has allowed us to us to win all the biggest sumo robot tournaments all over the world, and ultimately create the SumoBoy!
