GT RoboJackets RoboCup SSL
The Georgia Tech RoboJackets team competes in the annual RoboCup Small Size League (SSL) competition. This repository contains all of the software that we run on the main field laptop and on our robots. More information on how our software works can be found on our documentation page, our wiki or on our website. Also, check out our 2014 qualification video to see our robots in action!
The soccer game is played between two teams of six robots each on a field with overhead cameras. The field vision computer processes images from the cameras and sends out (x,y) coordinates of the ball and the robots. Each team has a laptop that accepts the data from the vision computer and uses it to strategize, then send commands to robots on the field.
The official RoboCup site has more information on the competition.
robocup-software is split into 3 parts, software, firmware, and a common part, used by both software and firmware. This repository contains the software portion of our codebase, the part that runs on our laptops, running high level plays.
The soccer folder contains the code to build the 'soccer' program, which is the main program in control when running our robots.
Code that's shared between the software and firmware sections of our codebase is stored here, as a git submodule. See RoboJackets/robocup-common.
External dependencies that our code relies on, stored as git submodules. To initialize these, please run
git submodule update --init --recursive.
Compiled programs and some configuration files are stored here.
Here's a quick guide to getting this RoboCup project setup on your computer. We recommend and only provide directions for installing on Ubuntu Linux and Arch Linux, although it shouldn't be too difficult to port to other operating systems.
- Clone the repository
git clone git://github.com/RoboJackets/robocup-software
- Install the necessary software
There are a few setup scripts in the util directory for installing required packages, setting up udev rules, etc. See
osx-setup for more info.
$ cd robocup-software $ util/<SYSTEM>-setup
- Build the project
We use CMake as our build system and have a simple
makefile setup that invokes CMake.
make, several programs will be placed in the run folder. See the soccer docs for instructions on running the soccer program.
We use Doxygen for documentation. This allows us to convert specially-formatted comments within code files into a nifty website that lets us easily see how things are laid out. Our compiled doxygen documentation for software can be found here:
Note: The doxygen documentation site above is updated automacally using circle-ci. See our autoupdate-docs.sh file for more info.
We use gtest for unit-testing our software, which can be run by running
make tests. To add a test to be run with the rest of the bunch, add a new file in soccer/tests.
The soccer tests can be run using
make test-soccer or firmware tests with
The TESTS name filter to run only certain tests. For example
make test-soccer TESTS=Point* runs only the tests for the Point class.
