It would be fairly easy if you had the outer 3" of the arena painted white and the inner area painted darker.

By using LDR's and bumpers it would be easy to make a pushbot. If both ants had IR sensors and transmitters it would be very easy to do.

I dont think they'll be able to beat a "human powered" ant, but I'd still love to see one.
I'll try doing my arena top black with a white outline then, seen as though Adam's bringing his to my event. Maybe an interchangable top though.

I should have an autonomous robot arround easter. Next terms project is to build a seven dwarf robot, so with some minor code changes i can make it hit the nearest thing rather than avoid. There is a surface mount option too, so i can save some weight. Must add lipos and a wedge :D nothing to intellegent, ultra sound sensors.

Don't forget, I've got to see it as well. I end up in the pit at the best of times. :o
