Look how fast these tiny Japanese sumo robots move

The way they stop right at the edge of the ring tells me that they must be semi-autonomous.


Looks like they are totally autonomous:


They got nothing on a real Sumo Wrestler. They should be forklift sized.


This set of rules for a Japanese tournament includes both autonomous and remote-control ones.


The robot revolution will last 0.35 seconds.


All I see are two self driving cars in a parking lot.


If the bots don’t perform the pre-bout ceremony then they aren’t really sumo wrestling.
