Greg the Destroyer Mk2

Create a robot to do a sumo battle that is lighter than 1 KG and fits easily into a circular tin.

GREG

This is how we made GREG’s code.

This is the grand final fight against EV6.

Evaluation and reflection

GREG’s key points were his speed and the ramp being able to blitz the enemy before they could react.

If we had more time I would make it heavier and add more ramp.
