The Federation of International Robot-soccer Association (or FIRA, in short) was founded in June 1997 with a basic goal of taking the spirit of science and technology of robotics to the
laymen and the younger generation, through the game of robot soccer.
The aim of the project is to develop a team of autonomous robots in accordance with the rules of RoboCup Small Sized League and the Mirosot league of the World Championship conducted by Federation of International Robot-soccer Association (FIRA). The origin of this project dates back to August 2010, when the FIRA World Championship was held in Bangalore. We achieved the distinction of being the only Indian team to participate in the 5:5 Mirosot league of the event. With this experience, we aim to take this project ahead with plans of participation in the next edition of the Championship.
The FIRA Simurosot League is a simulation of small (7.5cm*7.5cm*7.5cm) robots playing football, which is governed by real world physics and rules. KRSSG began development for this league way back in 2010, when it was a B. Tech Project, and has come a long way since then developmentally with new strategies, control algorithms and playsets, ultimately placing 10th at the FIRA Roboworld Cup 2015.
"By the middle of the 21st century, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall win a soccer game, complying
with the official rules of FIFA, against the winner of the most recent World Cup."
This project was a result of the success of the RoboCup India Challenge in the campus in August 2009 and led to the formal existence of KRSSG. The aim of this project is to develop a team of autonomous robots in accordance with the rules of International RoboCup Small Sized League. Some of the notable highlights of this project are the development of a Solenoid Kicker that shoots a golf ball at a speed greater than 10m/s and the making of our own simulator integrated with a Physics engine to study the dynamics of multi-robot control!
The RoboCup 3D Simulated Soccer League allows teams to control virtual humanoid robots to compete against one another in a simulation of the rules and physics of a game of football. KRSSG has been involved in developing the strategies and control for this league.
