this is our 3 minutes of non-stop video. there are three players on
the pitch and the video demonstrates the players both localizing in
the "zones" described in the 2004 qualification paper, and carrying out
dynamic role assignment as they switch between occupying the zones
and trying to move the ball into the goal.
although all 6 markers are still installed on the pitch, the robots
are not configured to recognize the green so they are ignoring the
this short video shows our early attempts at getting the players to
autonomously go to their staring positions, using a markov localization
method and only 4 markers. the robots get there eventually, albeit slowly.
our current work involves speeding this up considerably.
although two of the robots are dressed in blue and one is dressed in red,
they are all configured to be on the same team.
this is our first video of the team.
while we have working code for the individual components (Behavior,
Control, Localization and Perception), as of the date of this video,
the components are not working together -- as amply demonstrated in
the approximately 3 minutes of video.
more video will be posted in the next few days and weeks as these
components are connected to each other.
this is our second team video.
we have been working on connecting the individual components (Behavior,
Control, Localization and Perception).
as of the date of this video, Perception is talking to Behavior, but
there are still issues getting Control and Localization to talk to
Behavior as we intend.
as can be seen by this video, the robots can now respond to seeing the
ball by going to it, although they don't yet know where they are on
