Based on real Sumo Wrestling rules, your autonomous robot is required to locate and push, flip, roll, shove, throw, hurl, or otherwise remove the opposing robot from a 1.5m ring in the shortest period of time. Originally initiated in Japan, Sumo Wrestling competitions have spread to robotics competions all around the world.
