Applied Robotics with the SumoBot

Applied Robotics with the SumoBot is included with the SumoBot Robot Competition Kit (#27402). 

With this book, you will learn ways to hone your BASIC Stamp programming skills with the SumoBot robot and practice new techniques that are designed to bring out its very best performance in the mini-Sumo wrestling competition ring.  Available in print or as a free download. Build and program two high-quality SumoBot® Robots designed to wrestle in their own mini-sumo competition ring! Follow the SumoBot Manual assembly instructions and test programs to go from basic moves to one-on-one combat.

Once you have your SumoBot robots up and running, give them a competitive edge and expand your skills by following the step-by-step activities in Applied Robotics with the SumoBot - an advanced text in our Stamps in Class series. Activities include friction analysis, self-calibrating sensors, memory optimization with multipurpose variables and a sensor flags register, and state-machine diagrams for sensor-based navigation. EEPROM data logging lets you record your robot's sensor and program states during a match, then display them afterward in the BASIC Stamp Editor's Debug Terminal - an excellent way to troubleshoot and analyze the performance of your program strategies.
