Abstract
Ant Weight Battlebots are a low-cost high-impact way to be introduced to robots. These combat robots weigh one pound or less, and even with their small size, builders can develop a foundational understanding of robot design, fabrication, control, and electronics. Designs may range from simple Lego-built structures to elegantly designed titanium-caged fighting machines as long as the one pound rule is maintained. In December 2016, CRUSER and the RoboDojo held our first Ant Weight Battlebot competition. This presentation will provide an overview of how ant weight battlebots fit into the ecosystem of competitive learning robotics, our series of workshops leading up to the competition, fabrication of our arena, safety considerations, the competition itself, and learning outcomes from the event.
