Really Nice!


I like the soccer ball idea! Rating:****


Wow! outstanding idea with the ball.


Very cool SoccerBot! hmm, I was looking at you "soccer ball" and I am a little skeptical. :) Does the EV3 really catch the IR signals? Great robot, and good luck in the challenge. Rating: *****


Cute idea with the custom ball, but I get the feeling that it has a tendency to land on the flat side where the emitter is...


why don't you have a program you need one to enter the soccer bot contest?


can you add a video please?


Nice,once I had an idea the beacon should be the ball.The bot does not look really sturdy,and it is HUGE!He can be the striker,blocking the enemy to go to your side.


Congrats on winning!!


Congratulations with the challenge! I like the idea with the ball!

SoccerBot is my next soccer player. He can drive and shoot. A motor makes the shooter arm taut. The motor press at the same time a pneumatic pump. The pneumatic pump is related with a pneumatic motor. The pneumatic motor servers the connection between motor and shooter arm. An elastic adds spice to the shooter arm. The shooter arm shoots and the ball flies. In front of the robot you can see two arms. They "catch" the ball. The colour sensor work as a light barrier. The infrared sensor can see the ball and decide on the robots position, because I built my own soccerball. In my soccerball is the remote control, but you can read more about the soccerball in the additional information.
