Soccer robot TURTLE-5k - Corporate Social Responsibility throughout collaboration (May 2014)

890 views

Published on

The project started with the vision of Robocup and associate professor René van de Molengraft, director Tech United, TU Eindhoven: ‘In 2050 a team of football playing robots defeats the human world champion team.’ ACE picked-up this idea and initiated together with Van de Molengraft the Turtle-5k project. For ACE it is a (non-commercial) contribution to society and show corporate social responsibility (CSR): Promote technology and drive knowledge on autonomous robotics. This way, gained knowledge in the end can be applied to challenge the contemporary social themes such as autonomous robots in fields as homecare and rescue. Tech United already had many years of experience within the Robocup. They even became world champion in 2012 in the Middle Sized League (MSL). That became the starting point of the Turtle-5k project. ACE decided to make a cost down redesign of this world champion and make it available for everybody who’s interested in this competition. That meant a cost reduction for each robot from 25 thousand to 5 thousand euro, with the same functionality of world champion of Tech United. This will attract new teams and drive knowledge throughout competition. In order to reach this goal the whole system needed to be redesigned, from mechanics to electronics and new (open source) software needed to be developed. This was done in cooperation between ACE, TU Eindhoven, Frencken and VEDS. This cooperation made it an even bigger challenge since it is not based on a profitable business case, hence all companies voluntary contributed in the project making use of their competences and available resources.
