- How to start
- RoboNewbie_1.1T – the framework and example programs (Version 1.1T with trainer). It is programmed in JAVA 7 and prepared for use under Netbeans. The “QuickStartTutorial” gives an introduction to the features and the usage of RoboNewbie.
- The SimSpark RoboCup 3D Soccer Simulation (SimSpark RCSS)-Version r300 for Windows is configured for RoboNewbie. SimSpark RCSS was developed by the RoboCup Soccer Server Maintenance Group. A short overview is given by “SimSpark/SoccerServer RCSS as used for RoboNewbie”, the detailed information can be found on the SimSpark Wiki .
- The MotionEditor can be used for the design of motions. Installation and usage are described by the “MotionEditor Tutorial”. To use the motion editor you need JAVA 3D Version 1.5.1 on your computer.
RoboNewbie is a basic framework for experiments with simulated humanoid robots. It provides interfaces to the simulated sensors and effectors of the robot, and a simple control structure. The framework and the examples are implemented in JAVA with detailed documentations and explanations. That makes it useful even for beginners in Robotics. RoboNewbie runs in the soccer simulation environment of the official RoboCup 3D simulator. The simulated soccer players are models of the humanoid Robot NAO of the French Company Aldebaran. Besides other examples, a simple soccer playing robot demonstrates the architecture and the features. Users are encouraged to extend it by different means. Thanks are due to the RoboCup community for continuous help and inspiration. Last update of project files: December, 01, 2016. Resources for Download
