Introduction: Robowars, KMB Combat Robot

About: I am an A-Levels Student at Karachi Grammar School, Pakistan. My passion is physics and mechanics and I want to be a Mechanical Engineer in the future. Actually anything in the field of engineering would do. :P

SO last winter I went to LUMS PSIFI, and we participated in Robowars, the battle of robots. We got knocked out right in the semi-final so here are some pictures of our robot. :) It was the first time we had made a robot, so we were unaware of quite a lot of things and so it our robot wasn't perfect and we lost due to a decrease in voltage of the batteries.

    We just took it out of old RC cars. I suggest you do the same.

    and the circuitry once again ... i am talking about the circuit board and all that stuff in it ... not the wiring and all ... did u make the circuit board and all controls in it yourself ??

    Yes we did. We did everything ourselves. We had no professional help. :P

    okay ... since i am preparing to make 1 of this kind ... did u ever feel that your design had drawbacks such as being a bit too high from the ground? Or perhaps the outer body not strong enuf in the combat part when it got hit ?? ... and one more thing .... a 40 min max battery time is more than enuf right ?? for psifi events this is

    Alright mainly our robot was overweight by 2 KG. So work on that. Secondly, this specific model was too slow. But that was primarily because our Battery got pretty weak towards the end. So work on that. Get extra batteries if possible. The outer body was strong enough. Not much damage was done though. I think the battery time is enough. Good Luck and you should have started a long time ago to be honest.

    oh ... and what batteries did u use ??? as in rating and all ??

    I'm not sure of the exact rating. But we used two 12 Volt Batteries.

    umm hi .. where did u get the circuitry done from ??? u didnt make it yourself right ??

    Hi. We did do all the circuitry our self. Like we made the entire internal system at home. But there were several glitches in the end. Therefore I highly recommend that you take some help from any relative/friend who is currently an electrical engineer.

    is there any other area easily accessible!.....as sher shah not easily accessible
