How to make Soccer Robot for RoboCup
The news is that We have some great and most exciting events coming ahead.Some of us are very curious about robotics.Sometimes just for the fun and sometimes for the sake of academic projects.
And believe me when the first time I made a robot I was too much excited to play with it.After that, I participated in some robotics competitions and then I heard about something that could be the
Dream.That is something Big..!!.I hope You are aware of this event.Yes, I’m talking about RoboCup.
I made a robot for small soccer league that was held in my institute.On that basis, we were preparing for the RoboCup. So here I’m going to tell you about small soccer league (SSL).After that, we will see some setup for the RoboCup senior category.
we will design an Omni directional robot for small size soccer league.
This guide will cover the following topics:
- Introduction to Soccer Robot and RoboCup SSL
- Basics of Robot
- Manual Controlling of Robot
- Basics of Autonomous Robots
- Mechanical design
- Mechanical Parts
- Designing of robot base
- Omni Wheels design
- Electronic Design
- Electronic Parts
- Wireless Communication using nRF24L01
- Ball Detector Circuit
- Motor Driver
- Programming and Algorithms
