Title: CIT Brains (Kid Size League)
Authors: Yasuo Hayashibara
Abstract: In this paper, we describe the system design by our Team, CIT Brains, for the RoboCup soccer kid size humanoid league. We have been participating in the Humanoid League for nine years. Three years ago, we redesign the system in which we put a large weight on maintainability and usability. In RoboCup 2014, we received first prizes on 4on4 soccer and technical challenge. Consequently, we were also awarded the Louis Vuitton Humanoid Cup. The system we developed has high mobility, high speed, strong kicks, well-designed control system, position estimation by a monocular camera and user-friendly interface. The robot can walk speedily and robustly. It includes feedback system with a gyro sensor to prevent falling. It also detects the positions of landmarks by color-based image processing. A particle filter is employed to localize the robot in the soccer field fusing motion model and landmark observation.
