The time has come, the school year and thus the season 2020/2021 is coming to an end. To end the last one and a half years on good terms a friendly match between surrounding institutions has been supervised by a jury from the TU Munich. Our team was one of the participants. We showed up at the final meeting, which due to the current pandemic took place online. Those were the two robot we presented:
These robots can be distinguished chronologically: In the school year 2019/2020, for which the competition was actually scheduled, we, i.e. a team of six people, developed a sumo robot: With dimensions of 250mm x 280mm x 280mm and a total weight of around 2500g it was well within the bounds, while this year’s robot, which was designed by a group of four, with dimensions of 300mm x 300mm x 300mm and 2800g only narrowly missed disqualification.
Unfortunately, the final meeting was held online, but we were still able to present our robots with some pictures and videos and we had the opportunity to see the achievements of the other teams.
We are proud that we were able to demonstrate not only one, but two working sumo bots fighting each other. As we were the only team able to display a working(!) robot at all, we were especially proud of our rookies who managed to build their robot during this season!
