Autonomous Combat RobotPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
In a combat robotics match, two robots armed with high kinetic energy weapons attempt to damage, control, or otherwise disable their opponent. The majority of combat robots are glorified remote controlled cars, implementing little to no autonomous features. One of the most popular weight classes for combat robotics is the 3lb or beetle class. Due to the extreme environment and fast motion of combat competition, automated robots have the potential to out-perform human drivers. This MQP’s autonomous combat robot remains aggressive and deals damage to the opposing robot, which are important elements for success. It is sufficiently robust to survive repeated impacts and accelerations, while challenging human drivers.
