Lego Sumo is a competition, in which two robots built ONLY with Lego Mindstorms (NXT or EV3) sets try to push each other out of the arena. Known as "sumo-bots", robots use sensors, engines, intelligent programming and tactics in the fight with a rival robot.
Arena is made of wooden or plastic material in the shape of a circle with a diameter of 77 cm. The height of arena from the table varies from 1 to 5 cm. The surface should be black and the edges are 2.5 cm white.
The starting positions of the robots can only be as shown in the figure.

Length: 15 cm
Weight: 1000 g
Brick (CP): 1 
Movement type: Autonomous (uncontrollable by user)
Start time: 5 seconds – Robots may start 5 seconds after the START command.
Parts: Only Lego Mindstorms (NXT or EV3) – official (original) parts should be used

1. The robots must be placed on the opposite sides prior to the battle, and a part of the robot must touch the white line.
2. During the initial placement on the arena, the robot must partially cover the white border. Once the robots are deployed, they cannot be moved or repositioned.
