On the 25th of April 2019 during the Polish miniSUMO Robotic War, my 4 teams won the first four places! In addition to diplomas and congratulations, members of #RoboticTeamGrudziądz brought with them prizes in the form of 4 drones.
1st place: Artur Będziechowski
2nd place: Arek Czyściecki
3rd place: Kacper Skupiński
4th place: Jan Sobiecki
The robotics competition is the culmination of a long project process involving STEM science. In „mini sumo war” the teams’ task is to design half-kilogram vehicles. The robots had a programmed “fight or run away” mechanism. Using sensors, they try to locate an opponent in a ring, push him from the battlefield, while avoiding being pushed. The weighing of vehicles takes place before the competition. Their weight could not exceed half a kilogram.
In the ring, it turns out which robot was better prepared for the fight. Participation in the competition allows young enthusiasts of robotics associated in the Scientific of Mechatronics Robotics #RoboticTeamGrudziadz to broaden their knowledge in the field of electronics, electrics, mechanics, PCB design and fabrication, 3D design, printing and programming principles in C ++. During the event, besides fun and competition, students had the opportunity to exchange experiences as well as learn about different principles of robot construction. It is also a great event that integrates the robotics environment. #RoboticTeamGrudziądz participates in the championships in Bydgoszcz, the Baltic Battle of Robots in Gdansk, RoboticArena in Wroclaw and RoboticDay in Prague (Czech Republic) as well as in the MakerFaire fair in Hannover and Berlin (Germany).
