The purposes of ATHLETE CUP are development of robot technology and activation of the robot-market by providing robot builders and students with a place for exchanging information.
MANOI by KYOSHO, KHR series by KONDO KAGAKU CO., LTD. and Himejisoftworks Zero series which were on the market could join the competition. Revised these robots also could join.
Seven robots joined 5 athletic competitions which were Radio Controlled 5 m Foot Race, Radio Controlled 10 m Obstacle Race, Dancing, Autonomous Beach Flag, Autonomous 20 m Foot Race and High Jump. Each competition winner got a prize, twenty thousand yen.
Competitions were carried out on the athletic field which was 6 m length and 1.8 m width punch-carpet (needle-carpet). Results are shown in Robot Yuenchi Blog.
Radio Controlled 5 m Foot Race
Four robots joined the competition. Each robot could run the 5 m course 3 times. The robot taken the best record was a winner. Robot joined were 1) BLACK TIGER β, 2) ATACO, 3) Purple Star, 4) Metalic MANOI. The winner was ATACO, MANOI revised robot by Hiroki which best record time was 13.60 seconds. Video is each robot's best record of 3 times run.
Radio Controlled 10 m Obstacle Foot Race
Six robots joined the competition. Each robot could run 3 times on the 10 m obstacle course with 3 cm high hurdles. The robot taken the best record was a winner. Robot joined were 1) BLACK TIGER β, 2) Purple Star, 3) Hachigouki-NIKRA, 4) ATACO, 5) 8-2 Industry, 6) Metalic MANOI. The winner was Metalic MANOI, MANOI revised robot by Oyama-san which best record time was 35.81 seconds. Video is each robot's best record of 3 times run.
Autonomous 5 m Beach Flag
The Robot Beach Flag game is similar to a human's one. Two robots start from the start line and push down the pole sat at a distance of 5 m. The robot push down the pole at first is the winner. The pole (for beach flag) is attached with 40 kHz ultrasonic wave sender. As radio control is prohibited, all robots have to move autonomously. There is no limitation concerning sensor control board and sensors. Three robots joined in the competition.
It is necessary for winning the competition to reproduce the movement accurately. Because the winner is the robot could push down the pole at first in each game. The robot has to win each game. The Robot with best time is not always the champion. Videos were as follows;
Rokugouki-WAGATSUMA by Tokai University vs BLACK TIGER β by IKETOMU. Rokugouki-Wagatsuma was using KCB-3WL for color image sensing of the pole color red. BLACK TIGER β was using MANOI Sensor Board (HRP100) for 4 PSD sensors and one ultrasonic wave sensor. The winner was BLACK TIGER β.
Sena by Nihonkougakuin-Hachiouji vs BLACK TIGER β by IKETOMU.
The winner was Sena, using KCB-1 as sensor control board with 2 ultrasonic wave sensors (USW) and PSD sensors. When the robot start, the USW sensor system was used and when the robot was in the short distance from the pole, the PSD sensor system was used. The winner was Sena, which detected the difference between 2 USWs for walked straight. On the other hand, BLACK TIGER β slipped down and lost the direction of pole. The winner's best time was 33.85 seconds.
Autonomous 20 m Foot Race
Two poles (for beach flag) attached with 40 kHz ultrasonic wave sender are put on the start line and the end line of Beach Flag course. The robot runs 2 rounds of 2 poles 5 m course for 20 m. Each robot could try three times and the best time robot was a winner. Some markers such as color board, radio wave sender or light etc. for robot recognition of the course, could put around the course. Two robots joined the competition. The winner was Hachigouki-NIKURA, Tokai University. Robot turned by color marker using KCB-3WL for color sensing. The winner record was 3 minutes and 43.81 seconds.
High Jump is a new ROBOT ATHLETE CUP competition. At first robot length from foot and top of the head measured and the bar set from top of the head. However, it is difficult to jump up to the length of robots because the robot body was too heavy to jump up for servo motor with the power and speed. BLACK TIGER cleared 3 cm but failed 4cm.
