Soccer Robots used in the 2014 Australian National RoboCup competitions.
I have not used soccer robots, so I can not claim any special knowledge. However it seemed to me that these students had produced some spectacular Robots for use in their Soccer events. These are some images that I took when my main interest (Robot Rescue) was not running, to remind myself of their expertise.
LEGO Soccer Robots using ordinary wheels.
This RoboCup Junior Soccer team used a pair of LEGO NXT robots.
This team used one LEGO NXT robot using ordinary wheels, and a second robot using multi-directional wheels (see image below).
LEGO Soccer Robots using omnidirectional wheels.
This robot formed a team with the robot pictured above.
Some teams used protective shields around their robots.
Some soccer robots used a wooden platform to mount their LEGO components
Some soccer robots used two wooden platforms to mount their LEGO components.
Soccer Robot using omnidirectional wheels.
Some soccer robots used no LEGO components. This one looked as if the main mounting structure has been 3D printed. I'm not sure what computer chip has been used, but I would guess (and it is only a guess) maybe an Arduino? If anyone knows, I'd be interested to find out.
