Swedish National Robotics Championships 2011

Hi LMR!

 

I thought I'd just inform you of the swedish national championship in robotics. There will be sumo, minisumo and a penthatlon. It will be held at the 9th of april in Gothenburg.

I'm going to participate in the penthatlon with the robot I'm building right now, I haven't posted any pictures of it yet, they'll later today. 

The penthatlon is made up of five parts(duh); maze solving, line following, terrain track, collecting cans and "show off". 

Any fellow LMRers(?) from sweden perhaps would like to meet up and share ideas?

Huzzah, I have returned from the dead.

After a really long absence, I am back.  I have just returned from a week vacation from Toronto, Canada.  I went out there on Nov 20, 2010 with Blaster Shark and a new sumo, Driller Shark (which I will post soon) to compete in the Canadian National Robot Games.  I placed 2nd with Blaster Shark, and Driller Shark failed hard because of some motor driver issues.  In the mean time while it get my photos and videos in order, enjoy the highlights from the masters mini sumo in the video.

Gadget Gangster Design Competition

instructables robot competition

Instructables is running a competition for bot-makers. It seems quite simple: Upload your HowTo on their easy to use website, and tell them it's for their competition. The only restriction is that it has to be robot related, mark the word related!
