The team wanted to design anddevelop a humanoid robot control system of “kit Bioloid” that acts as investigation platform for different locomotion types. Also, the robot control system should be capable of many different activities, especially soccer (based on the regulation of the RoboCup competition.) Lastly, the robot should recognize written and voice commands and be able to interact with people.
How the team addressed the challenge:
With the experience obtained through years working with National Instruments technology, the team knew that NI began developing solutions for the industry early on. Through the years, NI gained much experience developing solutions for robotics. It is for this reason that they decided to use LabView as the programming platform for present project.
