11 teams with a total of 14 robots participated at the May 2014 Mini-Sumo robot competition this week at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Horw/Switzerland.
A lot of engineering (and creativity!) work went into the robot design, and even some last-minute changes were made to get things hardened for the battles. Some bots were based on the seconde generation design (described here), and most had the new quadrature encoders implemented (see here).
The video below features each robot:
The new teams learned and improved from the December 2014 competition, and they all did very well. Check out the video:

Congratulations to the winners and everyone participating!
Happy Sumoing 🙂
