Galliano by Jim Munro

Standard Lynxmotion MicroMouse with front scoop modification.
First Step Basic Stamp Microcontroller.
2x - Sharp GP2D05 Object detection system (IRODS) 
Homebrew edge detection sensor (front and rear)

Despite some design flaws on my part, the robot did well
and came in 3rd place. Not bad for a last minute run. 

Sensor I: 
IRODS Object Detection System 

Sensor II: 
Built from: Kodenshi # SG2BC Reflective opto-sensor as sold
by All Electronics. Cat # OSR-13 They are small and very
sensitive to ambient light. I used a small piece of photo
negative material to shield them from any possible bright
lights in the Sumo robot "arena".
