A Kicking Mechanism for a Soccer Playing Robot a Multidisciplinary Senior Design Project Abstract This paper describes a multidisciplinary capstone senior design project that involves the design, build and test stages 1. It is a two-semester project that was conducted by five senior students in
essential parts of a soccer robot in Middle size and Small size classes in the kicking system, this system is in charge of kicking the ball upon the command issued by the processor of robot. Almost every team develops their own unique shooting device.

The performance of our robot team in Iran-Open RoboCup competitions 2008 (1st place) showed that the combination of methods and techniques described in this paper are led to a successful design and implementation of a solenoid based kicking mechanism for soccer player team. In our robot, omnidirectional navigation system, omni-vision system and ...
The final goal is to be able to win against the human world champion team in soccer in the year 2050. One of the main part of robots which play in Middle size and Small size leagues of Robocup matches is Kicker system [1,2]. This system most kicks the ball when a specific control command come from processor of robot.
In order for the kicking mechanism to perform a more powerful kick, we want to avoid the situation where the ball is in contact with the pedal. Thus, the team decides to use two proximity sensors to alert the robot when the ball gets too close to the robot. The proximity sensor selected is CT1-AP-1A, manufactured by AutomationDirect.

4.2 Spring Loaded Mechanisms Spring kicking mechanisms are extension or compression springs used to store and then release energy to propel the ball. As such, a mechanism is needed to tension the spring and a trigger to instantaneously release the stored energy into the ball. Such mechanisms must be robust, and are non-trivial to design.
the robot. For actuators, such as a ball kicking mechanism, this means the contact angle with any external objects is a function of the pitch angle and must be considered. Secondly, the changing pitch angle affects what part of the world external sensors will perceive. Perception algorithms must account for this change in pose to operate effectively.
