SoccerBot S4 and SoccerBot S4X Mobile Robots
The SoccerBot S4 is a small, compact mobile
robot built around the EyeBot controller and EyeCam camera. It meets the
size requirements for RoboCup F180
league (an international robotics research competition, played by 5-a-side
robot teams) as well as the FIRA RoboSot league. Unlike most other systems, the SoccerBot is a completely autonomous
robot system. It can be used for a variety of application areas in research,
education, and entertainment.
SoccerBot S4 has the controller mounted flat on the robot chasis, while S4X has the contoller mounted at an angle, giving additional space for two servos, enabling camera panning and kicker action.
Only the best components have been
used to construct the SoccerBots, e.g. highest quality German DC motors
from Faulhaber with encapsulated gears and encapsulated encoders.
Wireless Module N1
The wireless module is an add-on for the EyeBot controller board. It allows several EyeBots to communicate with each other (1 module required per EyeBot) or with a PC (requires one PCNet box). The module comprises an RF module, an antenna, and the radio library for RoBIOS. This library comprises basic communication functions that can be used in application programs. Establishing of the wireless network, integration of incoming controllers/robots, and error checking is done automatically.
Wireless Box P1
The PCNet wireless box is required to link one or more EyeBots / EyeBot robots with a PC. A number of example programs are available from the web.
