Our goal is not just there. Our goal is to win the world championship and steadily pass down the skills we have cultivated to the juniors.
What is RoboCup?
RoboCup is an international project with the aim of "By the middle of the 21st century, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall win a soccer game, complying with the official rules of FIFA, against the winner of the most recent World Cup."
The competition we participate in, "Soccer Lightweight," involves each team building two robots that shoot an infrared-emitting ball towards the opponent's goal. The game is divided into halves, and the winner is determined by the total score accumulated from two matches played.
I am in charge of designing the robot body and creating presentation posters. I believe in the potential of 3D printing and have been creating various things with it.
I have been participating in the Lightweight for the past three years. I am conscious of writing program code that is easily understandable to anyone who looks at it.
I am in charge of circuit boards! I love circuit boards!!! I can't write programming code though...
Programming / Robot Design
This year, as I'm also in charge of the robot design, I'm studying CAD. I'd like to write programs while keeping processing speed in mind.
I am currently studying programming and circuits. I am learning a lot and I hope to achieve good results in competitions starting from the next year and beyond.
I'm studying circuit boards at the moment. There's a lot I don't understand, but I hope to eventually become proficient in both circuit design and programming, and contribute to the team.
Our machine with "dedication"
We design the robots from scratch using CAD and then produce them using a 3D printer. By incorporating curved designs, we leverage the flexibility advantage of 3D printing while compensating for its inherent fragility.
