Intelligent Sumo Robots

The Sumo Robot contest is an annual event at our faculty. Each year more and more students are interested and join in. In this project, we will start from existing sumo robot hardware (preferably the student's robot!), with the goal of developing better software, so that it could beat more expensive robots by simply being a "smarter" fighter. This will be achieved with a combination of machine learning (e.g. about the oponnent) and optimal trajectory control.

We are looking for a motivated student who is able to efficiently program robots in C on the one hand, and on the other has analytical ability to understand and further develop the relevant learning and control techniques.
