Darpzen Sumo Robot Photos (2012 MEB Contest Winner – Old)

This robot competed at 2012 Meb Robot Contest and 2012 – 2013 All Japan Robot Sumo Tournament. İbrahim Savrukoglu and Me made this project. We used 4 Maxon RE35 Dc Motors at robot. We made custom reduction for Maxon motors to 2,5:1 ! Here you can find some photos of robots. (more…)

New Sumo Robot “Shadow!” In Progress

This year we built better sumo. It uses Keyence & Omron sensors.. Total six sensors robot use. It competed at: Uludag Robot Gunleri 2012 Meb Robotik Yarismasi 2012 Isparta SDU Robot Yarisması 2012 For now only one video and some photos..:) With new Arduino Sumo Robot Controller Card.

Maxon Motors for Sumo Robots

Almost all Japan teams use Maxon dc motors for sumo robots. And we started to use at our projects. At this article I will explain why we use them. At my latest projects,I used Maxon motors for drive. They have superior quality.  At  Fusion I used maxon RE40 Dc brushed motor. These motors rated 150 watt at 24V. They have incredible torque. Firstly motors have very little response time due to the coreless structure. For RE40 response time is only 4 [...]

Cellat Sumo Robot

Cellat (Executioner) Sumo Robot (Old 2008 Year Project) Actually it has three plexiglass plane. İt uses 4 Maxon motors, They rated 48V!! Yess:) Motors are weighing 400gr ea.
