Competition-Ready Mini-Sumo Kit

The Solarbotics Sumovore is a strong, modular design with over 500 man-hours of development and 21 prototypes behind it. It sets a new standard in mini-sumo kits by providing winning power, speed and flexibility at an amazingly low price.

This kit features:
  • Powerful GM8 gearmotors powered by a robust L293D motor driver
  • Four opto-reflector edge sensors (fifth edge sensor position available when using microprocessor brainboard)
  • Two 38kHz IR emitters and detectors for opponent detection
  • 6AA power supply
  • Modular brain boards (discrete brainboard included, optional BS2 / Stamp Stack brainboard available separately)
  • Multiple trimpots for simple behavior tuning
  • Modular front edge sensor / IR transmitter daughterboard
  • 345 grams "batteries-in" finished weight (6 x AA batteries not included)
  • Powder-coated front Steel (not Aluminum) plates available in black, white, red, blue and yellow (indicate preference in check-out comments field)
  • Wheel available in black, red, blue and yellow (indicate preference in check-out comments field)
  • Detailed 32-page instruction document which also contains full electronic schematics, both logical and symbolic for custom modifications
The base kit includes a "discreet" brainboard which is pre-programmed with winning mini-sumo and line follower behaviors:
  • Anti Sumo-dance behavior stops two sumos from spinning endlessly around each other
  • Anti edge-ram behavior stops dual edge triggers from causing repeated edge-charging
  • Selectable sumo and line-follower modes
Extra options include:

  • Rear-looking IR detector and emitter
  • BS2 brainboard to accommodate 24-pin BS2-compatible family of microprocessors (BS2 not included) (available now)
  • HVWTech Stamp-Stack Basic Stamp 2 clone board (mates with BS2 brainboard)
  • Atmel Mega8L brainboard with additional breadboard space (available 2004)
  • PIC 16F877 brainboard with additional breadboard space (available 2004)
