Forseti is a heavyweight robot which entered production to compete in Series 10 of Robot Wars, although it was not selected to compete. It was built by a team who had previously competed on the show with R.O.C.S., which competed in the main competition of Series 2, 6 and 7, as well as the Pinball competition of Series 3.
Design[edit | edit source]
Little is known about the robot's design, other than that it moves away from the crusher weapon that Team R.O.C.S. is known for. Forseti used a custom two-stage gearbox, 4QD speed controllers, and sported bright yellow tyres.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Forseti was the god of justice and reconciliation in Norse mythology.
Qualification[edit | edit source]
Forseti entered the build process in early 2017, with the earliest record of its progress being a drive system assembly test posted to Twitter on February 15th, 2017. It applied for Series 10 of Robot Wars through a combination of CAD and physical build progress in its application, but ultimately Forseti was not selected to participate in the series.
