Story:

This robot participated in the 1st Robot War, the first gender event to be held in the country, which won first place.

Scorpion was the first developed by the team and has this name, because the first project resembles a scorpion, and consists of a robot with claws and a mobile disk, being able to cut the opponent. However, this idea proved to be very complex and several adjustments were allowed until reaching the final project: a robot with a cutting disk and a rotating weapon with spines on the back.

The structure of the robot was made from reused materials, both the battery and the motors are the same as used in cars.

There was no specific electronics for the robot, a connection made by direct control, so there was no speed control, or the bot was stopped or was at 100% of its speed, and to make the inversion of directions, we used electronic relays.
