Let's Make Robots!

Need Sumo built (as a gig)

Hey guys,

I have a customer in Italy that I have done a bunch of custom robots for. He recently has requested a sumo bot --a couple/few of them actually, coded and ready to go. Just like a toy from a toy store, but with wires showing. 

This is a real gig, and I will happily pass it on to whomever wants it and there will be a fair bit of change at the end. 

Now, here's the catch --You can't fuck this up. This is a real customer who's orders have gotten me through some hard times in the past. If you take the gig, you just gotta come through. I need one guy, no BS, that can raise his hand and say, "I've done it a hundred time, I got it, no worries".

Keep it incredibly simple, use an off-the shelf chassis etc. and just be sure it does one simple thing well. No competition here, just a solid-running sumo. Hell, if you have a sumo bot going now, just buy an off-the-shelf sumo kit, stick in your existing, working code, tweak it as needed and call it good.

I can be emailed via my LMR contact.

I know your busy but if you can't afford fuckups then you really should do this one yourself Chris.

There are a lot of chassis's already designed specifically for sumo. It would help if you specified a size / weight class and budget for this robot.

For a small robot I would suggest this chassis: http://www.fingertechrobotics.com/proddetail.php?prod=ft-kit-cobra-chassis.

Use a 7.4V LiPo and Mini Driver to power it, add some sensors and your done!
