Discontinued. A Propeller-based SumoBot is in development. For updates, sign up for our newsletter.

Build and program two high-quality SumoBot® Robots designed to wrestle in their own mini-sumo competition ring! Follow the SumoBot Manual assembly instructions and test programs to go from basic moves to one-on-one combat.

Once you have your SumoBot robots up and running, give them a competitive edge and expand your skills by following the step-by-step activities in Applied Robotics with the SumoBot - an advanced text in our Stamps in Class series. Activities include friction analysis, self-calibrating sensors, memory optimization with multipurpose variables and a sensor flags register, and state-machine diagrams for sensor-based navigation. EEPROM data logging lets you record your robot's sensor and program states during a match, then display them afterward in the BASIC Stamp Editor's Debug Terminal - an excellent way to troubleshoot and analyze the performance of your program strategies.

Key Features:

  • Two sets of durable robot hardware sporting black anodized aluminum chassis and scoop, servo motors, and all the required components
  • Surface-mount BASIC Stamp control boards to host the included infrared object sensor electronics for spotting the opponent
  • Additional components including piezospeakers and pushbuttons to build custom circuts
  • Under-chassis QTI Sensors detect black and white surfaces, such as the edge of the sumo wrestling ring
  • Each assembled robot fits inside a 10x10x10 cube (with sensor leads trimmed) and weighes under 400 grams
  • Two printed tutorials - one for assembly, testing, and basic wrestling, the other for advanced sensor management and programming strategies


Kit Includes:

Note: Requires 8 AA 1.5 V batteries, not included.  BASIC Stamp programming requires the BASIC Stamp Editor software for Windows.

This product contains the same robots that were previously sold individually as the SumoBot Robot (#27400).
