The purpose of this project is to design and implement an autonomous robot that meets the specifications needed to compete in a sumo robot competition. The robot will react and move using various types of sensors controlled using microcontroller. Although this robot is developed to compete in a tournament, the technology can be used for unlimited applications. For example, the robot can be used to explore small or dangerous terrain, or even perform everyday tasks on its own like vacuuming an entire house. I have to see the design of this robot from many different angles like mechanical, electrical and coding. I had to approach my problem mechanically first because it is the building block for everything that I had to design, and had to fall in the specification. In the mechanical design I started by choosing a body type that will allow us to be as flexible as we can to allow other devises to be put on it and still can be under the size specification. Choosing motors was also important because I needed motors that can give the best performance in power, size consumption and cost. With similar specification for the design, I decided on what type of sensors I should use and how they can help me accomplish my goal. My choice of microcontroller to control the robot was simpler that anything else because I already had an experience with the Microchip 16F84A in a previous class and I already had an idea how to use this specific controller which is fairly inexpensive and which meet all the requirements.
