Robokeeper Man vs Machine

Imagine yourself in the following situation: You‘re the coach of the

German National Football Team and can depend on a goalkeeper who

will save virtually every penalty kick, is always as calm as can be and

will never voice a single word of criticism. Wouldn‘t that be perfect?

Such a goalkeeper actually exists. This expert penalty stopper is called



 The RoboKeeper is a larger than life Tipp-Kick goalie, attached to a


combined motor/gearbox. Two cameras are positioned above the goal,


which can identify the ball and then follow its trajectory. From this

data an image processing software determines the most probable point

of impact for the ball. This information is transmitted in real time to

the motor control, which then turns the goalie through the appropriate angle.


All of this happens within fractions of a second; after all, a well-kicked
ball can easily attain a speed of above 100 km/h. The penalty mark for

the RoboKeeper is about 9 meters away from the goal, leaving only

0.3 seconds to bring the goalie into the right position.


Even professional football players have had to experience, how hard it

is to score against the RoboKeeper.

To ensure a fair challenge for everyone, the RoboKeeper can be

adjusted to several levels of difficulty. In this way, both children and

real football players can join in the fun.

Since April 2008, the RoboKeeper can be operated both indoors and

outdoors. A team of three (including a technician) takes care of

mounting and dismounting and also performs the actual handling on

the premises.For more info vist the website here
