This contest is based on the SumoBot contest that Penn State IEEE has run the past few years in State College. Robots should not be designed to harm the other robot. A robot should be designed to autonomously detect the other robots and push it out of the ring. We have refined the rules a bit to help ensure this.
A single robot tries to push boxes off a field without falling off itself. The rules have been changed a little bit with regard to placement of the boxes.
