Sumo Bot MINDSTORMS® EV3 Advanced Robotics

Christ Church Grammar School
Claremont, Western Australia 6010

Experience the cutting edge of technology with the introduction of LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Advanced Robotics. Students will be captivated as they incorporate the newest generation of motors, sensors and software by programming using a Scratch based drag-and-drop programming tool to send commands directly into the intelligent brick.


Obstacle Course


Train your Sumo Bot to complete an Obstacle Course. Using two large motors, code your Sumo Bot to move each motors at different speed and power. Sumo Bot must complete the obstacle course without going out-of-bounds.


Follow the Line


The Sumo Bot uses reflected light via the colour sensor to detect when it is approaching an edge, and moves away from the edge. When the Colour Sensor on the robot senses a change in reflected light, (such as a dark line in its path), it reverses direction, turns 90 degrees and sets out again on its new course.


Sumo Wrestling


With the full training in Obstacle Course and Follow the Line, it’s time to train your Sumo Bot in its final challenge - Sumo Bot Wrestling. Your Sumo Bot will incorporate two touch sensors, as your Sumo Bot detects another opponent, it will charge at full power to push your opponent outside the Sumo Ring. Your Sumo Bot will also make use of a Colour Sensor to detect the Sumo Ring so that your it does not go outside the Sumo Ring.

Ages 9+
