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.
The Route to Japan
Qualification means that Small Size Holland is allowed to compete in the world championship. In the upcoming months the team will be working on improving the robot. The mechanical team is working on improving the wheel modules to increase the controllability of the wheels and to improve durability while reducing weight. The electrical team is working on improving their innovative design and work alongside the software team to ensure that the communication between the modules runs fast and without data loss. The AI of the system will be improved by creating better tactics, faster communication, and more intelligent software.
