University of Salzburg (Georg Klima, Krystian Szczurek, Peter Wild)


This project is merged of two sub-projects for the embedded software engineering (project SoccerBot) and robotics (project Emma2Object) classes 2005. While for the first project, the main objective was to design and implement a semi-autonomous robot using the Lego Mindstorm toolkit by employing principles learned in the embedded software engineering class (e.g. exact specification of timing behavior using Giotto), for the second project we aimed at providing an object recognition framework for an existing robot (Emma2) developed at the Department of Computer Sciences, University of Salzburg, Austria. SoccerBot is a semi-autonomous robot based on a Lego Mindstorms (RCX) chassis and a web camera as the main sensory system for navigation. Motivated by soccer-playing robots (RoboCup) we constructed a robot able to recognize and catch a ball distinguishable from the environment by its color and shape.
