most battlebots are made of steel or other hard metals... if your oponent has some type of blade, HDPE won't hold up.

battlebots are usually RC (remote controlled) so you won't be using sonar sensors. I think metal or maybe polycarbonate would be best to build a battlebot with.
Robots are awesome!
