Seeking “Dominion in the Ring” in Annual Sumobot Competition
Each spring, the Villanova chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) holds a sumobot competition. Sumobots are Zumo 32U4 robots built by teams of one to five students. Kits come with an instruction manual on how to assemble them, but the user is permitted some creativity. Add-ons and changes can affect the sumobot’s weight, size, speed, strength, etc. The assembled robots are placed in a black ring with a white border and attempt to push competing robots out of the ring. The coding in the robot allows it to detect the white border to avoid driving off and to detect the other sumobot in the ring and face it.
Villanova Engineers are inspired to solve problems, think creatively, work collaboratively and innovate in every field.
