Let’s Make a Satellite!

Sputnik 1 1957 was a great revolutionary year and a shifting point in the history which declared a great event, probably without you wouldn’t be able to surf the internet that fast, nor be able to read this article right now! In October 1957 during the cold, Russia has declared the human-space invasion by sending the first earth-orbiting satellite (Sputnik 1), the mission of that satellite simply was to prove the Earth-orbiting concept, take some atmospheric data and send them to [...]

Rocker Bogie Suspension System

The human body is a complex integration of intelligent parts in an intelligent way! Have you asked yourself before why when you jump you don’t end of having a broken leg? Why your stomach and Kidney don’t leave their places permanently as a result of the shock? The answer simply lies behind “The Suspension Systems”. Every solid matter that exists on earth has its own fragility level. So, engineers have to reduce the shock forces on the bodies according to [...]

Paladino Sumo Robot / UFFight Robótica – 2015

What is your Robot’s Name? Paladino (UFFight Robótica) (2015) Paladino is a 3Kg Radio controller sumo robot build by UFFight Robótica from Universidade Federal Fluminense. When you build? And Duration of progress. Paladino was design in the beginning of 2015, and has been improved since then. Which difficulties you faced while building? Due to the Lack of investment, we had to find innovative solutions for the powertrain specially. Technical specs of project (Weight, Speed, Working Current) Max Speed: 0.3 m/s; Weight: 2986 g What is engines of Robot? Motors,  [...]

Sakin Sumo Robot – 1st Place Winner 2015 & 2nd Place Winner 2014 All International Robot Sumo from Turkey

Sakin is a Turkish word means “Calm”. The name comes up with the speed of the robot. Sakin sumo robot is not so fast nor so slow, middle speed can be called which makes it “Calm”. The robot has very high torque to push the opponents that have many magnets. The robot has different attack and defense strategies. The robot user selects the strategy before start of the battle. In some case, the robot can change the strategy as defense [...]

New Opponent Sensors & Sensor Bracket Added!

Most Popular Sensors & COOL Bracket Added to JSumo Long range sensors in stock now! Previous day, we added 2 New Sensor and One Cool (universal) bracket to JSumo. Our most favorited sensor is now in our stock, Keyence PZ-G41CB. ==> It has NPN+PNP output and have good range (1 meter). Very fast (500uS reponse). I can easily say that sensor is mother of all sensors 🙂  Other new sensor is Omron E3Z-D82. Which is also very popular for sumo robot projects. You can look to [...]

New Sumo Robot Gears Added to JSumo Shop

Blazing Speed Sumo Robots! Achievable! Sometimes when you watch sumo robot videos, you see how much they are fast. Some friends asking which motor you are using or which voltage?  For making fast robot you need to change three things: Motor Voltage (DCX, RE40 or RE35 Types 12-18-24V Nominal Values) Wheel Size (35-50 millimeter sizes) Reduction (Cha-ching!) Our secret was making lower reduction ratios. Usually traditional robots uses 6:1, 6,5:1 or 5,5:1. With our lower ratio gear, you can achieve faster speeds at the same [...]
