    Location: ESAT room 02.58

    Also this year the IEEE Student Branch Leuven organizes a Sumo Robot Competition in the second semester. Build, design and program your own robot in guided sessions and compete against each other to win fabulous prizes!

    The first session is on the popular and easy to program Arduino micro-controller which you can also use in other do-it-yourself projects.

    We'll provide the Arduino's and equipment, you bring creativity and your laptop if you have one! We'll start with a short introduction and guide you through the setup.

    On Wednesday April 13th at the Machinezaal of the Thermotechnical institute, we'll have our annual sumo-robot competition. Create your own autonomous sumo-robot and join the competition! In this competition your robot has to find an opponent and push him out of the sumo-field (a black circular field with white rim).

    You first play against all opponents of your group. The best robots go to the next stage of the competition, with semi-finals and finals. There are nice prizes for the three best robots and the most original robot!

    Location: ESAT 02.58

    During the past sessions you have assembled your very own sumo-robot.
    In this next session you are going to program it!

    We'll give a short presentation on programming strategies and will provide a basic working Arduino tempate from which you can start building your own advanced control strategy.

    We'll also provide a sumo field to test your robot.

    Do you wish to participate in the competition and are starting from scratch?
    No problem, we'll help you out with a standard sumo robot frame + motors/sensors.

    Last semester we got the sensors and motors of our sumo robot operational, so now it is time to create the frame or "skeleton" of our robot.

    In this session, we will provide CAD files for creating your own standard frame which you can use to build your own customized frame. We will use the lasercutters at FabLab to create all the necessary components and afterwards assemble the parts.
