Robot is designed for these contests: 

 I call it COLLIDEscope because: A. It's colorful.  B. It's a Sumo.  It smashes into stuff.

It fits inside the size limit by starting on it's back, and then at the start of the round the wheels jerk back so that the entire thing falls forward.


It uses a LEGO MindStorms RCX and is programmed in RobotC 2.2.

 A Line Maze solving robot made with  a LEGO Mindstorms NXT and programmed in RobotC 3.04.

It uses 2 LEGO RCX Light Sensors and 2 LEGO NXT Light Sensors.  I call it FastTrack 'cause it's the fastest LEGO Maze Solver I've ever seen.
