Abstract

For its fifth participation to the RoboCup Kid-Size Humanoid League, the Rhoban Football Club reached the first place of the competition in 2016 in Leipzig. This competition aims at opposing teams of small autonomous humanoid robots in real soccer games. Implementation of complex mechanics, electronics and software systems is needed. In this paper, we summarize and describe some distinctive parts of our architecture. Going from our foot pressure sensors, our open-source alternative Dynamixel firmware, the use of kinematics models, the odometry and camera calibration to our perception system as well as simple but effective team play strategies.
