Soccer Robot made by


  • 1. Soccer Robot

2. Scientists have designed a human like robot named NimbRo-OP, with contrasting white head and black body, which is adept in playing soccer. 3. "NimbRo-OP" looks almost human. At a height of 95 centimetres, it is almost the size of a small child. Its weight of 6.6 kilograms, clearly less than that of a child. 4. It has a total of 20 drive elements that convert computer commands into mechanical motions. It has no problems kicking a soccer ball, and it can also get up from a prone position like a human, for soccer players also sometimes fall down. 5. This robot is capable of using tools, climbing stairs, and passing bottlenecks that are too narrow for wheeled or tracked robots. Future 6. Besides, they can also use human facial expressions, gestures and body language for communicating. 7. Hardware Specifications Height: 95cm Weight: 6.6kg 20 networked actuators (Robotis Dynamixel) 6 per leg (MX-106) 3 per arm (MX-64) 2 in the neck (MX-64) Dual-Core PC (Zotac ZBOX nano XS) 8. Hardware Specifications WiFi: IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wide-angle camera (Logitech C905) Inertial sensors (in Robotis CM- 730 controller) Battery: Lithium polymer 14.8V, 3.6Ah Materials: Carbon composite, aluminum, ABSplus 9. Software: The robot PC can run Linux or Windows. This software supports ball perception, walking, kicking, and getting-up motions. 10. Robots' soccer skills still inferior to those of humans Soccer-robots have to perceive environmental conditions, detect the goal posts, opponents and obstacles, and make and implement decisions involving their team members. 11. Robots' soccer skills still inferior to those of humans There is still much to do to solve all the problems out on the pitch. 12. The robot's source code and design are open source The design simple to allow other working groups to also use this robot as a basis for their work, modify and repair it. 13. 11853 Valley Blvd El Monte, CA 91732 14. 626-444-1608 15.
