SumoBot Upgrades:

4-Motor Driving SumoBot

This model fits at the rear of the Simple SumoBot, and uses a touch sensor to enable the robot to detect opponents attacking from that direction. 

The program incorporates the touch sensor into the series of if-then statements that use the other sensors during battle. When the reach touch sensor is activated, the robot makes a hard left to escape the opponent and hopefully flank them.
