SumoBot Upgrades:

Simple SumoBot - Rear Touch Sensor

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 touch sensor should be plugged into Port 3 of the EV3 Brick.

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.

This video upgrades the EV3 Classroom App Simple SumoBot Battle program to move the robot when the rear touch sensor is activated. The robot will make a hard left and attempt to escape and potentially flank their opponent.
