  • TEAM DESCRIPTION

    In past years, we chose Arvand name for our robots. The meaning of this word is robust and strong, properties we wish they have. Robots which participated in RoboCup 99 are Arvand 4th generation and we achieved a very high performance in comparison with first generation. This generation of robots consist of 3 main parts : Mechanics, Hardware system and Software system.

    Mechanics consist of: Drive motors, steer motors, omnidirectional castor wheel and a kicker.

    Hardware system consists of: Image Acquisition system, Main processing module, Hardware controller, Sensors and Communication system.

    Software system consists of: Real-time image processing, Decision making, Message processing and Hardware interface module.

    Our goal keeper had an special design. It had additional parts such as : two additional cameras, one additional main processor, 2 additional drive motors and a moving arm.

    WHAT IS ROBOCUP?

    RoboCup is an international research and education initiative, attempting to foster Artificial Intelligence and Robotics research by providing a standard problem where a wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined, as well as being used for integrated project-oriented education.

    For this purpose, RoboCup chose to use the soccer game as a primary domain, and organizes every year The Robot World Cup Soccer Games and Conferences. Since 2000, the competitions include Search and Rescue robots as well.

    In order for a robot team to actually perform a soccer game, various technologies must be incorporated, including: autonomous agents design principles, multi-agent collaboration, real-time planning and control, Robotics, and sensor-fusion.

    The RoboCup Federation proposed the ultimate goal of the RoboCup Initiative to be stated as follows: "By 2050, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall win a soccer game, complying with the official FIFA rules, against the winner of the most recent World Cup of Human Soccer."
