Mean Puppy

October 24, 2007 at 4:37 pm Leave a comment

Over the course of 4 weeks I built a Lego Mindstorms NXT robot named “Mean Puppy” for Lego Sumo at Fall Chibotica!

After watching videos on YouTube, I came up with my idea on how to build my Sumo Bot.

My ojects were to make it strong by have most of the parts interlock, and have high torque gearing. Easy battery aces fell into place by its self!

It took 3 weeks to build.

After 6 days of programming NXT-G on my computer crashed. All of the sumo programming files got corruped! With 3 days left, I was forced to get rid of my hopes to use a Ultrasonic sensor to find the other robot… My new gool was to rewrite my code for just finding the edge and acting apropreitly.

Within 2 days the program was finished and ready to be tested!

I soon tested how much dead weight Mean Puppy can push, and came out with the answer of over 10 US pounds!

Mean Puppy was ready for combat (check out my next post to see how it did at Fall Chibotica 2007)!
