Abstract / Description
The paper presents designing and optimization of key-frame based kick skills for bipedal robots. The kicks, evolved via evolutionary algorithms, allow a humanoid robot to kick in straight, sideways, backward and in angular directions. Experiments are conducted on the simulated model of Nao robot that is being used in the RoboCup Soccer 3D Simulation league. The initial sets of kicks were manually designed by human experts and were passed as seed values to the optimization process. Correctness in the kick direction and the distance covered by the ball were used as the fitness criteria. The findings of the paper not only significantly improves the capability of our RoboCup Soccer 3D team but also provides insight in the designing and optimization of key-frame based kicks that can be utilized by other teams participating in bipedal soccer.
