Applied Robotics with the SumoBot

Applied Robotics with the SumoBot is included with the SumoBot Robot Competition Kit (#27402).  With this book, you will learn ways to hone your BASIC Stamp programming skills with the SumoBot robot and practice new techniques that are designed to bring out its very best performance in the mini-Sumo wrestling competition ring.  Available in print or as a free download.

 

Topics covered include:

  • Explore physics with free-body diagrams to evaluate static and dynamic friction in the competition ring
  • Build self-calibrating sensors with programming techniques make real-time adjustments
  • Practice memory optimization with multipurpose variables and a byte variable sensor flag register
  • Try some data logging - record a match in EEPROM for performance analysis
  • Learn to use state machine diagrams for sensor-based navigation
