Welcome to the lightning-fast world of robot sumo, where two robots battle it out for mechanical supremacy. But, keep your eyes peeled—robots that take years to build can be decimated within mere seconds. Robot sumo has developed into a furiously competitive sport in Japan, with participants spending years building their autonomous machines. Just ask Takahiro Ito, a robot designer and builder who spends 360 days a year working on his craft. It's a demanding sport that requiring extreme dedication, all for a few seconds of glory.

Witness small but mighty sumo robots pull, shove, trip and smack each other out of a battle ring. If you haven’t seen robot sumo wrestling before, then you’re in for a treat. Trust me. Most robot versions of human sports are underwhelming, but as this video shows, the mechanical take on Japan’s national sport is very fast and very furious. And why? Because engineers aren’t trying to copy human performance. Instead, they concentrate on the qualities that robots excel at: namely lightning-fast decision-making and insane turns of speed. The main thing to know about robot sumo wrestling is that once a match starts, humans are out of the loop. Each bot acts entirely autonomously based on certain pre-programmed behaviors, and although there are a few rules to be observed, the main restraints are simply on size and weight. Within these limits, bots can try a number of different tactics to try and knock their opponent out of the ring. Most drive in different patterns, sometimes reacting to their opponent, sometimes not. The bot on the left, for example, is trying a common star pattern to out-flank its opponent, while the other robot is, uh, spinning round and round on the spot. See Japanese sumo robots clash in ruthless combat Robots are required to meet certain size and weight restrictions, but are otherwise allowed to implement various strategies and designs. Although most robots featured in the video feature a simplistic design and implement some kind of star-shaped pattern, other robots feature large, movable flaps and instead opt to quickly rush in a straight line or spin around in circles. Combatants are merely required to ring the opposing robot out in order to win, but some robots occasionally become dismantled or begin emitting smoke during the bouts. Robot-sumo, or pepe-sumo, is a sport in which two robots attempt to push each other out of a circle (in a similar fashion to the sport of sumo). The robots used in this competition are called sumobots. Robot-sumo The engineering challenges are for the robot to find its opponent (usually accomplished with infrared or ultra-sonic sensors) and to push it out of the flat arena. A robot should also avoid leaving the arena, usually by means of a sensor that detects the edge. The most common "weapon" used in a sumobot competition is an angled blade at the front of the robot, usually tilted at about a 45-degree angle towards the back of the robot. This blade has an adjustable height for different tactics. Robot-sumo is divided into classes, fought on progressively smaller arenas: Heavy-weight. Standard in the National Robotics Challenge. Robots may weigh up to 125 pounds (56.8 kg) and fit in a 2-foot cube (61 cm). Light-weight. Also standard in the National Robotics Challenge. Robots may weigh up to 50 pounds (22.7 kg) and fit in a 2-foot cube (61 cm). Standard class (sometimes named Mega-sumo) robots may mass up to 3 kg and fit inside a 20 cm by 20 cm box, any height. Mini-sumo. Up to 500 g mass, 10 cm by 10 cm, any height. Micro-sumo. Up to 100 g mass, must fit in a 5 cm cube. Nano-sumo. Must fit in a 2.5 cm cube. Femto-sumo. Must fit inside a 1 cm cube. There is also Lego Mindstorms NXT sumo robots, in which NXT robots compete. The robots usually have to fit in a one-foot cube. Classes are further divided into remote-controlled and autonomous robots. Also, there might be a tethered category (varies) Sumo robots are built from scratch, from kits or from Lego components, particularly the Lego Mindstorms sets. Some sumo bots are built with only wood and motors for more of a challenge. The usual size for the wood is 12" by 12". It makes it hard to construct a really large robot with this piece of wood. ロボット相撲

Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 sumo robots built to stay inside the ring and not get knocked over. Edited with powerdirector, but the videos were taken with an iPad Air. More Info: These robots have light sensors in front of the NXT bricks allowing them to detect when there is less of a light reflection on the black line, and then turning around. This is all possible with the Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 Set and a computer to write the simple drag-and-drop code in. The new EV3 Mindstorms set can also do this, although I have never used it.

TeacherGeek's Sumo Bot Vehicle Activity is the perfect way to encourage design and innovation. The flexibility of this system also provides the opportunity for creative competitions from the traditional sumo ring (arena) to collecting and delivering balls or blocks to elevated goals by integrating the TeacherGeek hydraulics into the vehicle design. The step by step guide provides just one example of a basic steerable vehicle that can be modified with additional TeacherGeek gears or pulleys for more speed and power. You can also add plows, lifts or whatever your design requires. This is by no means the only or the best design. You are encouraged to incorporate your own ideas and innovations. Design possibilities are limitless and the TeacherGeek system allows you to engineer and reengineer until your ultimate vehicle is complete. Products and documents can be found at www.teachergeek.com

Build and program two high-quality SumoBot® Robots designed to wrestle in the mini-sumo competition ring (#27404), included in the kit)! The electronics consists of a surface-mounted BASIC Stamp® 2 module and an array of infrared sensors to detect your opponent and the edge of the Sumo Ring. Additional components include piezospeakers, resistors, pushbuttons and LEDs to build custom breadboard circuits for program mode selection and sensor state feedback. The hardware package includes black anodized aluminum chassis and scoops, servo motors, wheels, 4AA power packs (batteries not included) mounting standoffs, and screws for two complete SumoBot robots. This kit comes with two printed texts. The SumoBot Manual has assembly instructions and test programs that take you from basic moves to one-on-one combat. Once you have your SumoBot robots up and running, give them a competitive edge and expand your skills by following the step-by-step activities in Applied Robotics with the SumoBot - an advanced text in our Stamps in Class series. Activities include friction analysis, self-calibrating sensors, memory optimization with multipurpose variables and a sensor flags register, and state-machine diagrams for sensor-based navigation. EEPROM data logging lets you record your robot's sensor and program states during a match, then display them afterward in the BASIC Stamp Editor's Debug Terminal - an excellent way to troubleshoot and analyze the performance of your program strategies. Hold your wrestling matches on the durable 36 x 36 in. SumoBot Robot Competition Ring Poster, designed for use with the instructions and programs included in Applied Robotics with the SumoBot.

https://github.com/ZongyiYang/sumobot-simulator A simple simulation environment I designed to allow students in teams of 3 to simulate their sumo robot code. This simulation is intended for the team member responsible for software since they cannot actually program a robot without the electrical and mechanical members completing their parts first. This simulation allows for students to program a high level AI for their program to get an idea on the strategies they might use. The video shows 5 SumoBots, 4 go in circles and have no AI while one is fitted with a very simple AI that allows it to push the others out of the ring.

This free tutorial uses EV3-G commands that allow a beginner Robot to reach the edge of the SUMO ring, and introduces commands that allow the Robot to stop when the Robot reaches the black edge of the ring. A color sensor and an EV3-G Switch are used to detect the edge of the SUMO ring. The Robot used in this tutorial is YayaBot, the construction details of which are given in Playlist C1. This tutorial is designed to have sufficient details so that students can hopefully work through this introduction to the start of Robot SUMO at their own pace. This video tutorial includes brief closed captions that may be translated into about 53 languages using the inbuilt Google translator. Have fun!

This video shows the process I used to construct a Lego Robotics Sumo Ring for my Robotics class. I used light weight recycled content corrugated display board and protected the edges with T-Mold Edge Banding. Spray painted the block edging for the Robots color sensor to detect the edge so it would'nt run off the board.

Mini Sumo Robot project powerd by Pololu Zumo 32u4 This robot coming with many great features. In this project is desingned for Semi-Automatic Mini Sumo Robot that can run on black feild and detect the white ring to prevent get out of the field. It use 3 front proximity sensors to receiving IR Remote Control and also use same sensors to detect the ring (Only front side detection for this one but able add more sensors to prevent other sides) This video show that when the Robot moving forward (front side) and when it nearly to get out of black feild area it will automatic moving backward a little then stop and waiting for next commands. Nothing special for this one just a basic Sumo Robot. But with Pololu Zumo 32U4 you can made more functions like automatic detect the opponent or use gyroscope to dectect collisions and automatic move toward to them to push them out of the ring. So it able to be full automatic Sumo Robot (Example code included with the libraries) I hope you guy who watched this video got some ideas to having fun with Robot project. I'll really appreciate if you could share the ideas with me and others.
