• Research & Development

    Halfway through the first semester of 2017 / 2018 the SSH team is working hard on improving the current robots and to make them ready for a ‘friendly’ match against RoboTeamTwente and of course qualification for the annual RoboCup tournament. This article gives insight in the progress that has been made so far this year.

  • A new team!

    A month has passed since the new team members joined Small Size Holland. A lot has happened during the first month, from a photoshoot to Maxon’s Eat & Meet. This article will summarize the first month of the new team at SSH.

  • Qualification RoboCup

    Last week the Robocup team of Saxion and Windesheim qualified for the world cup in Nagoya, Japan which will be in July of 2017. After months of hard work the team sent a qualification video which shows that the robots are capable of driving autonomously. The qualification ensures that the robots who compete at the world cup have potential to play games at a high level.

  • International visitors

    Friday, March 10th, ten students of the international transition class at Stedelijk Lyceum in Enschede visited SSH. Here, they got involved with robotics and the RoboCup. Together with several team members they visited the Saxion LEGO Education Innovation studio for a hands-on robotics workshop. After the workshop the students toured the lab where the team is busy developing the robots.

  • Generation 4

    During the spring of 2016, we realized that the Gen3 robots had issues driving straight, due to the wheels having different angles to one another. We decided to use the same angles between the wheels. The main reasons for this were the ease of controlling a robot and a higher speed in all directions. This meant there was less space for the dribbler/chip/kick module. Also there wouldn’t be enough space to fit the current solenoids in with the current wheel module.
