The Cornell Robocup Team
This paper describes the Cornell Robocup Team, which won the RoboCup-2000 F180 championship in Melbourne, Australia. The success of the team was due to electro-mechanical innovations (omnidirectional drive and a dribbling mechanism) and the control strategies that rendered them effective. As opposed to last years “role-based” strategy, a “play- based” strategy wasimplemented, which allowed us to make full use of the robot capabilities for cooperative control.
