Robotic sumo is a competition where two robots, known as sumo-bots, attempt to push each other out of an arena using sensors, clever programming, and innovative design. The arena for the contest is a 4-foot diameter circle, and the time given for each round is 3 minutes. Your goal is to create a sumo-bot, using entirely Lego made components, that can push its opponent out of the arena before being pushed out of the arena by the competing sumo-bot.
