Introduction: Simplest Automated RoboSumo
Robot-sumo, is a sport in which two robots attempt to push each other out of a circle (in a similar fashion to the sport of sumo). The robots used in this competition are called sumobots.

Step 1: Introduction
The engineering challenges are for the robot to find its opponent (usually accomplished with infrared or ultra-sonic sensors) and to push it out of the flat arena. A robot should also avoid leaving the arena, usually by means of a sensor that detects the edge. The most common "weapon" used in a sumobot competition is an angled blade at the front of the robot, usually tilted at about a 45-degree angle towards the back of the robot. This blade has an adjustable height for different tactics.
Step 2: Hardwares Required
- Robot chassis (As per design)
- Ultrasonic Sensor (1)
- IR sensors (2-4)
- L298 Motor Driver (1)
- Side-Shaft motor (2)
- S-S Motor clamp (2)
- Wheels (2)
- Arduino Uno with Cable (1)
- 12V Battery
- Jumper Wires (As required)
- Nut-Bolts (As required)
Step 3: Ckt. Connections & Code
All circuit connections should be made as per the given Arduino code.
In case of modification in Hardwares IDE code should be changed.
