you should make the training area back with a WHITE outline, like a real sumo ring. otherwise your robot will be riding on the (white)edge :)
also: 10cm is too short range for a microsumo. the ring is Ø77cm
Not really. Ring for microsumo is Ø38,5cm, and for miniusmo it is Ø77cm :) But I agree with this range, anyway. The 340k's would be the best choice, i think.
ohh yeah! i was thinking of minisumo :P
I find it hard enough to make a mini sumo (10cmx10cm) :P
you should have it rotate along it own axis to search for the oponenet, and then when something is detected, it attacks :D
And have you ever seen nanosumo :D ? It's official class, 2,5cmx2,5cmx2,5cm (1in^3) :]
i was just thinking those sensors are digital, not analog, did this give you any trouble?
Isn't 10cm too short range for a microsumo? Maybe better choice would be gp2y0d340k - not too big package and very nice interface - just 1/0.
