Technique of Standing Up From Prone Position of a Soccer Robot

Mochamad Susantok, Nur Khamdi, Antony Darmawan


One of the humanoid robots being developed in the field of sports is a soccer robot. A soccer robot is a humanoid robot that can perform activities such as playing football.
And a variety method fall down of robot soccer such: falling down toward the front direction, side direction, and rear direction.
This paper describes the most stands up methods of a soccer robot from its prone position.
The proposed method requires only limited movement with degrees of freedom.
The movement standing-up of soccer robot has been implemented on the real robot.
Tests we performed showed that reliable standing-up from prone position is possible after a fall and such recovery procedures greatly improve the overall robustness of a Soccer Robot.
