What stimuli does a combat robot needs to respond to? Answered

Asking so that I can make the right sensors for it, it's a wheeled robot, not humanoid, and the robot it'll be fighting with will also be a wheeled one.

You or any non gov builder cannot put enough CPU software
into the multitude of micros to outperform your opponent working
his bot from the over-tower view position.

Best you can do is turn your software to have fast response to
button commands like
  • Retreat
  • Curve Attack
  • Double Fake
  • Jag
  • etc

You don't want to drive your wheels directly,
Not even mentalink wise.

Think about it, to get a drink of soda, you don't actually fetch
it yourself.  You just initiate the action :-D

It's just a little home competition with my friend who will also be probably right now working on his bot, both of the robots will be fully autonomous (and they are fully homemade), and the only thing that would determine the winner is what and how many stimuli a robot responds to and how does it respond.

So, I was asking some of the very basic stimuli a combat robot should be able to respond to?

It depends. For most public combat the robots are radio controlled. Not a robot at all really in some peoples minds.

For autonomous sumo robots you need to detect the opponent, the edge of the combat area, your orientation so you can get back up again.

Ultra sonic, Infra red and touch are all used.

Such a lot depends on what your doing and what you want to do.

How do they detect where the opponent is, what type of sensor is used here?
