Importance of AI

Artificial Intelligence is the machines which are designed and programmed in such a manner that they think and act like a human. Artificial Intelligence becomes the important part of our daily life. Our life is changed by AI because this technology is used in a wide area of day to day services

 

 

Our Code/:

In the science of Artificial Intelligence, there is a subset called the multi agent AI which examines how to control multiple components (e.g. robots). The software written in this field is also designed based on the same subcategory, which in general is tasked to specify the direction of movement, movement speed and kicking power of each robot by these algorithms.

 

 

Mechanics

The Mechanical parts of our new robots have been designed in a compact and efficient way. They have 4 wheels which allow them to move in multidirectional path. Other pieces including the battery and magnetic shooters for chip and direct kicks are placed inside the main body.

 

Kicker and Dribbler

  Kicker magnetic system works with a solenoid that is designed in order to prepare alternative speed of shooting, 1 to 12 m/s.

  Special design of this part –dribbler- enables robot to dibble, shoot and chip the ball

Compact Wheel System

  Moving system of the robots consists of 4 powerful brushless 50W EC flat Maxon motors. While these series of motors use low electrical energy they produce high acceleration for robot replacement.

3D Print Technology

The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. About 90 percent of our new generation of robots are produced with this new technology.

 

 

 

Electronics

 

The new main board of the robot is designed to process all the commands in the FPGA, one of the best chipset for controlling devices. The new kicker board’s responsibility is to maintain suitable units of electricity for ball kicking and chipping.

Kicker board

In order to transform electrical energy to kinetic energy, we use two solenoids; one for the direct and the other for the chip kicker. By applying a high current impulse to each solenoid, a strong momentary magnetic field is produced which applies a hard force to a ferromagnetic piece that pushes the ball.

Main board

A Xilinx XC3S400 has been mounted on the main board for controlling the motors, encoders, gyro and kicking system. There is a TSK3000 processor implemented inside the chip for calculating the navigation algorithms and processing data received from the nRF52832.
