RoboRacers & SumoBot Competitions

RoboRaces and SumoBot competitions are held every two years. RoboRace V and SumoBot III were held on Thursday, April 29, 2010 in P-309. About 50 majors and guests were present.
After a competitive but friendly event C-Biscuit (Cindy L. & Russell R.) emerged as a winner in the RoboRace. Tohru (Russell R. & Cindy L.) emerged victorious in the SumoBot competition. Congratulations to Cindy and Russell for winning it all. A tiebreaker race was held for second place. Second place beat third place by less than half a CPU (unfortunately in the best pro sports tradition we don’t remember the non winners names!).
Below are a few of the photos of the events. A youtube video will follow (as soon as I learn how to make one).

  2. I’m infinitely honored to have had Darrick and Aliya’s Sumo-bot named after me! That bit of information certainly brightened up my last week of classes, thanks guys, you two are great.

    Oddly enough, your robot placed better than my group’s robot at last year’s sumo battle!

    P.S.: Can’t wait to see you around the Rutger’s physics building next year Darrick
