STRATEGY FOR FIRA HUROCUP WEIGHTLIFTING TOURNAMENT: PUO ROBOT SOCCER TEAM
This paper presents the strategy of the Politeknik Ungku Omar (PUO) Robot Soccer Team in the FIRA HuroCup kid-size game for the weightlifting category. The problem with the weighting robot used by PUO is unable to maintain stability if the total number of disks is lifted more than 35 disks by using the original gripper hand. To increase the maximum disk, the new design gripper hand has been designed. The objective of this paper is to demonstrate the concept of static force based on two strategies that will be used for weightlifting events. For the first strategy, we demonstrated the differences in the total number of disks lifted by using an original gripper hand and a new design of the gripper hand. The second strategy is to develop a new lifting motion with the new design gripper hand as well as to break the previous disk lifting record. The RoboPlus software is used to design motion posture to bring the disk from the first line to the finish line. The results showed that by using the new design hand gripper 65 disks were successfully raised as compared to 35 disks by
using the original gripper hand.
