Sumo Robot with ‘The Claw’

Sumo Robot with ‘The Claw’

Image by Matthew Blyde
Built for a university subject this robot is designed for a sumo competition where opposing robots try to push each other out of a ring. Our group named him Dr Zoidbot after the crustacean Dr Zoidberg from Futurama. His secret weapon was a retracting pole (‘The Claw’) to provide some extra ‘push’. Unfortunately a fried circuit board meant ‘The Claw’ was never used in anger.
