Battlebots are machines that have been popular to niche crowds over the past two decades. The show Battlebots first aired in the year 2000 and is still creating new episodes today. There are other similar robot fighting shows that have also been aired including Robot Wars, and battlebots have made other pop culture appearances such as in an episode of The Big Bang Theory. The battlebot arena has harbored many designs over the years. In our battlebot design, we have tried to draw from those designs to create our own bot that is designed to be effective, and affordable with reference to other bots in its class. We are going to construct a battlebot with a custom-built spinning weapon mechanism that will be able to compete at a high level against other battlebots within an acceptable budget. The battlebot will be built within the guidelines presented by the official Battlebot rules provided on the Battlebots website. The bot must be under 250 pounds, less than 8’ x 8’ in size, have the required safety on/off switches, and the power supply must be under 60 volts. These rules set a standard to keep the contestants somewhat evenly matched, but do not impede on creativity.
