AUTMan Humanoid TeenSize is a joint team for participating in Humanoid Teen-Size Robot League in RoboCup. This team was founded in 2013 on collaboration between AUTMan humanoid team from Amirkabir University of Technology, Iran and team Snobots from University of Manitoba, Canada.
This humanoid Teen-size research is mainly based on both universities’ experiences provided from long time participation in RoboCup humanoid league in recent years. Our main research interests within the scope of the humanoid robots are in a range from humanoid robust walking to accurate localization and to able robot deciding more wisely based on a knowledge base.
Team AUTMan Teen Size participated with great success in previous competitions. In RoboCup 2015, Hefei, China, the team placed 3rd in the general TeenSize League and at the same time placed 2nd in the Technical Challenge together with Team WF Wolves & Taura Bots, a joint team from Germany and Brazil. In RoboCup IranOpen 2015, Tehran, Iran, our joint team placed 1st in the Technical Challenge. Also in RoboCup 2014, Joao Pessoa, Brazil the team placed 1st in the Technical Challenge together with Team Nimbro from University of Bonn, Germany. Also the team won the 3rd Place in the Humanoid Teen Size Robot Sprint Challenge in International FIRA RoboWorld Cup 2014, Beijing, China. Both teams also extensively published their research results.
Development for 2016
In 2016, the goal of the collaboration between these teams and also participation in RoboCup 2016 is three-fold like the previous year. First, the implementation of improvements to our teen-sized humanoid robots framework and software by combining the extensive experiences from both teams. The main research thrust for the new robot design is to focus on designing of different basic postures for walking gaits, push recovery and active balancing by careful studying of different methods. The other goal is to continue to demonstrate the feasibility of joint teams in RoboCup and the third one is to modify our previous TeenSize humanoid platform robot.
