An autonomous soccer-playing robot was designed and constructed as part of the electrical engineering senior project at Brigham Young University. Unique physical features enable ball handling abilities. A front-side rotating drum retains the ball by applying backspin. A pneumatic kicker allows for fast accurate kicks. Robot movement control is performed by(More)
The design, assembly and performance of a prototype 1/spl times/8 reconfigurable holographic free-space switch is described. Central to the switch fabric is a ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) on silicon spatial light modulator (SLM) deposited with a 540/spl times/1 array of planar mirror strips. The input and output ports to the switch are fabricated as a(More)
