Sumo Autonomous Robots Competition

About

Sumo Autonomous Robots Competition, SARC, was a competition in which participants received an 8 weeks training prior to the contest. Participants were required to build an autonomous robot that is able to push its opponent out of the specified ring according to the tournament rules. It introduced new students to microcontrollers, sensors, circuit and PCB design. Moreover, it improved team work and problem solving techniques among students and developed the field of robotics in the university.
