Our robots fought valiantly this past weekend at Motorama’s Robot Conflict event in Harrisburg, PA. We improved our designs from previous years to field robots able to take substantial damage as well as give it. One 3lb battlebot reached a quarterfinal and
Cathii, our 30lb battlebot, won her first ever fight!

The 27th International Robot Sumo Tournament in Tokyo, Japan has ended. We won a couple of matches and are bringing home 50,000 Japanese Yen in prize money. We’re glad to have made friends with various international teams. We thank the College of Computing for sponsoring our travel, Fujisoft for sponsoring us in the tournament, and all our other sponsors for helping us in the creation of the robots.

At the RoboGames international robot competition in San Francisco, California, RoboJackets’ BattleBots team successfully defeated Heavy Metal using our horizontal spinning drum BattleBot, Mandii . Unfortunately, we were knocked out of the tournament by the highly destructive robot Touro created by RioBotz, a team from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In addition, our Sumo bot took 4th place overall in the 3 kg R/C class and we were officially invited to the “International Robot Sumo Tournament 2015” held in December in Tokyo, Japan.
