In 2003, I took the Autonomous Agents course at Chalmers University of Technology. One of the great events of that course was the Sumo Robot competition. I am proud to say that I was a member of the winning team with the robot Black Jacques (in the Box).
Have a look at the wmv-movie Sumo Cup 2003 with the most spectacular moments of the competition.
The tactics are summed-up in the PowerPoint page shown during the project presentation: Sumo Tactics.
We used somewhat modified rules from the Central Illinois Regional Sumo Competitions of 2002. Up-to-date rules and a lot more information about Sumo Robots can be viewed at An Illustrated Guide to American Robot Sumo.
