Finally 3D printing is now available in our country now time to make good use of this...
Autonomous part voice controlled FUNCTIONS [MODE]
Today I updated this instructable to have autonomous functions in the same way voice activated functions to fight you opponents in the ring, by saying specific words you can challenge your self during the game and have fun while at it as you notice most sumobot games are getting boring sometimes so let us liven it up a bit by adding voice control.So now how does it work exactly well from the title itself you can tell its a combination of an autonomous sumobot with voice controlled attacks its that simple!
The same old program we use in sumobot competitions
What I think of the Idea and some other improvements later on ....app in the making
Well i think it is interesting because when I think about it the first thing that pops in my mind is "real steel" ,but in reality voice control like that is too fast in terms of response. In this project voice control response is delayed. I know this program relies on internet connection so that makes sense right I dont know about you guys if your voice control response is delayed but I'm from the Philippines where internet is slow so to make things easier for me and you guys I decided to make an android app for buttons only so far me and my brother got it to work on my phone already but this may need a lot of debugging since its our first time making an app.

1kg SUMOBOT RESTRICTIONS IN OUR COUNTRY "PHILIPPINES",must be within the 20x20xm range,1kg or less duhh cannot have a very sticky wheel that can grab an index card for 1 second and everything else is just like those 500g sumobot rules
My experince in building a 1KG sumobot before
weight was always the problem including the scoop and the battery getting the power and speed of the robot was easy but removing the weight was the most irritating part. Make the battery lighter you loose motor power and battery capacity. Make the scoop rigid and nice you increase its weight. Also the wiring ugh powerful motor drivers like mine can make things messy inside. Making a DIY sensor board direct soldering everything is just a mess and maintaining it is just a drag so I designed this robot to lessen those issues
Good points about this robot
Its more spacious than most 1kg sumobots out there.
More sensors can be mounted
More space for battery upgrades
maintenance is easier
wiring is also a lot easier
Parts you will need
"TAMIYA WHEEL SET"
SHARP LONG range sensors 20-150cm
4S Li-Po 1300mah 132g only!
1x Pololu Dual VNH5019 Motor driver 30A (PEAK) per channel
5V regulator "UBEC" or just use a normal 7805 5v regulator UBEC is better than 7805~
3x M3 screws
M3 Flat head screws
3x M3 Nuts
1x 150mm x 180mm Fiberglass / carbon fiber plate 2mm thickness
HC 05 Bluetooth module <-- get this to have voice control functions
IR rx 38khz with "IR remote"
The first thing you will need is the chassis
3D print or DIY its up to you just open my 3D files to see the dimensions
just remember you chassis width should be 180mm so that you can print my robots scoop/mask with out any editing
