This paper describes the advances in the mechanical, electrical and software design of Tech United’s Middle Size League robots for the past year. The main innovation is the renewed design of the goalkeeper. Its hardware is specifically designed to perform large sideways accelerations. Furthermore, it has been equipped with improved ball detection with(More)
In this paper we discuss improvements in mechanical, electrical and software design of our middle-size league robots. Regarding hardware and control recent progress includes a prototype design of a ball clamping system, and first steps towards improved passing accuracy via velocity feedback control on the shooting lever. In terms of intelligent gameplay we(More)
In this paper we discuss the progress in mechanical, electrical and software design of our middle-size league robots over the past year. Recent process in software includes intercepting a lob pass and improvement of 3D ball detection by combining omnivision output of different robots. For better localization the distance mapping and mapping center are(More)
