LV Tanker Takes the 5th Place Medal
In the NY Science Olympiad Regional Finals at Webber Middle School, the LV Tanker plowed its way to 5th place of 43 contestants.
The Tanker was the only sumo bot powered by an Arduino. The LV tanker pushed its way through the semi finals and – with is blinking LEDs and front mounted laser the Tanker was a real crowd favorite – being the only contender to be controlled by a custom 2.4 GHz remote with Wii Nunchuck. But in the end, the Tanker got blindsided from the side – its only weak spot, and was pushed out.
Thank you all for your support and ideas.
