Uncommon Ground: The Shared Ingenuity of OSoD and the Latest in Mobility and Robotics In the realm of robotics and automotive innovation, a silent revolution brews, one that is as understated as it is radical. At the heart of this revolution lie the Overwhelming Surplus of Diggity (OSoD) – a marvel in the Pi Wars robotics competition – and its three contemporaries: the Hyundai Mobion, Mercedes EQG, and Hiwonder JetRover. What stitches these diverse entities together is their embrace of an ethos that defies convention.

Odometry Matters

Odometry Matters In the journey towards Pi Wars 2024, we recently achieved a significant milestone that might sound deceptively simple but holds immense importance: we synchronized our wheel speeds with steering angles for the first time. While it happened relatively late in the build process (we embarked on this project back in 2021), grasping the significance of this achievement requires us to revisit the lessons learned from our past robot, Tauradigm

Blog Post: Revolutionizing Pi Noon with OSoD’s Autonomous Strategy The Pi Noon challenge at Pi Wars has always been a thrilling test of precision and strategy, where robots face off in a duel of balloon-popping prowess. This year, Team Cyberwar is taking an unprecedented approach with their robot, Overwhelming Surplus of Diggity (OSoD), by entering the challenge autonomously—a pioneering move only previously attempted by Piradigm. The Autonomous Edge: OSoD’s strategy hinges on autonomy, leveraging advanced technology to outmaneuver opponents.
