This paper presents a model-based implementation approach for controlling a humanoid robot to play weight-lifting games in FIRA HuroCup League. The Petri net-based wireless sensor node architecture (PN-WSNA) is used in this paper to perform the decision making for playing weight-lifting games according to visual perceptions. Furthermore, the PN-WSNA models are executed with a PN-WSNA inference engine, and the inferred decision is applied to an autonomous small size humanoid robot. Finally, the execution of the PN-WSNA models for playing a weight-lifting game is discussed to validate the feasibility of using PN-WSNA-based implementation approaches.
