Kicking a Ball – Modeling Complex Dynamic Motions for Humanoid Robots [chapter]

Judith Müller, Tim Laue, Thomas Röfer
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Complex motions like kicking a ball into the goal are becoming more important in RoboCup leagues such as the Standard Platform League.  ...  These motions are defined as a set of Bezier curves that can be changed online to allow adjusting, for example, a kicking motion precisely to the actual position of the ball.  ...  During the execution of a kicking motion, the position of the ball might change, either in reality after having been touched by a robot, or virtually in the kicking robot's world model after having perceived  ...

Planning and fast re-planning of safe motions for humanoid robots: Application to a kicking motion

Sebastien Lengagne, Philippe Fraisse, Nacim Ramdani
2009 2009 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems  
Optimal motions are usually used as joint reference trajectories for repetitive or complex motions.  ...  In the case of soccer robots, the kicking motion is usually a benchmark motion, computed off-line, without taking into account the current position of the robot or the direction of the goal.  ...  Humanoid robots are complex systems in which neither geometric structure nor dynamic model are simple. This complexity limits the reactive capabilities of computation for motion planning.  ...
