Micro Robot Soccer Tournament Submission

Date created
The Micro Robot Soccer Tournament (MIROSOT) is an international robotics competition in which teams of robotic soccer players compete against one another. One of the aims of the competition is to promote developments in autonomous robots and intelligent systems that can cooperate as a team to achieve a mutual goal.The SFU MIROSOT Group (SFMG) is researching, designing and constructing a robot soccer team that will compete according to the rules outlined in the MIROSOT Rule Book (http://www.fira.net/fira/index.html). The SFU MIROSOT Team '99 (SFMT '99) is attempting to redesign the current robots and to equip them with partial intelligence on board. The project will be carried out by implementing hardware and supporting software for the purposes of collision avoidance and improved path following characteristics. Our fields of research are robotics, sensors, wireless communication, data processing, feedback control and related areas of engineering and technology. Possible applications include robot teamwork in manufacturing industries, target search, multiple-object sensing, obstacle avoidance and military operations. We propose to design and construct the first prototype of the semi intelligent robotic soccer players and associated support systems.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440.  Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem.  This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
