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.

One of the most 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. There are three main approaches to design and implement the robot kicking system.

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.
In order to realize the function of dribbling, the soccer robot must have a dribbling mechanism. Football robots rely on the ball gripper to control the ball in the robot’s forward direction. The kicking mechanism control circuit sends a kick signal from the DSP, triggers the kick board to discharge, and then hits the ball with an electromagnet.
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.
