Writing your own logic for the robots

You have to write your own logic for the robots. Do this by editing the right function in the program folder (logic for both teams are divided in teamLeft.js and teamRight.js). Please don't use any loops in the function, it is called regularly by the event handler.

Template

//Program of the goalie on the right side
function goalieRight()
{
    if(api.onLine()){
        api.move(api.lineAngle()+180 , SPEED);
    }else{
        api.setDribbler(false);
        var ballAngle=api.ballAngle();
        if(api.distance(api.distance.BACK)>(60+LEFT))
            ballAngle = 180;
        else if(ballAngle>180||ballAngle<0)
            ballAngle=270;
        else
            ballAngle=90;
        api.move(ballAngle, SPEED);

        if(api.ballInDribbler())
            api.shoot();
    }
}

//Program for the Striker on the right side
function strikerRight() {
    if (api.onLine()) {
        api.move(api.lineAngle() + 180, SPEED);
    }else {
        var angle = api.ballAngle();
        if (angle > 180)
            angle -= 360;
        if (api.ballInDribbler()) {
            angle = 0;
            if (Math.abs(api.distance(api.distance.LEFT) - api.distance(api.distance.RIGHT)) < 60) {
                api.setDribbler(false);
                api.shoot();
            }
            else {
                api.setDribbler(true);
            }
        }
        else{
            if (Math.abs(angle) > 90)
                angle = 180 - (Math.atan(3 / (api.ballDistanceCM())) * 180 / Math.PI);
            else if (Math.abs(angle) > 60)
                angle *= 2;
            else
                angle *= 2;
        }
        api.move(angle, SPEED);
    }
}

Alias file

To get the full compatibility with your real robot program there is the program/alias.js file. It is used to populate all global variables and provide a layer between the Soccer-API and your API.

There are to main procedures which you can (and should) use. The first is setAlias which is called every time before your logic is being executed and can be used to to set the values of your variables to the appropriate values of the API. The second procedure is getAlias which is used to give the values of your logic back to the Soccer-API.

Example

//Some global variables which you need in your logic
var ballAngle;
var dribblerPower;

const SPEED_BALL = 80;

//This function is called when the simulation has loaded
function initAlias(){
    //Some defines which are used in your program
    var defines = "#define DEBUG true\n"+

    //Load the original C++ code of your robot (see the Chapter "Loaders" for more informations)
    loadFile("SoccerB/program/originalCode.cpp", "SoccerB/program/teamLeft.js" , defines);
}

//This function is called before your logic
function setAlias(){
	ballAngle = api.ballAngle();
}

//This function is called after your logic
function  getAlias(){
    api.setDribbler(dribblerPower);
}

//A wrapper for an Soccer-Api function
function driveRobot(angle, speed){
	speed = speed/255 * SPEED;
	api.move(angle, speed);
}

//Call functions of you logic
function goalieLeft(){
	defense();
}

function strikerLeft(){
    striker();
}

Loaders

Loaders are used to translate the syntax of the language of your robot program to javascript.

C++ Loader

The C++ loader can load C and C++ code and translate it into javascript code. It uses the C++ preprocessor and can thus handle real preprocessor statements in your code.

Example
loadFile("SoccerB/program/originalCode.cpp", "SoccerB/program/teamLeft.js" , "#define DEBUG true");

API-Reference

All methods listed below are part of the SoccerAPI class, which is predefined with the api object.

Outputs

api.move(angle,speed);

Move the robot in a specified angle with a specified speed (robot will keep this speed until there is a new speed)


api.moveToXY(xPos, yPos);

Let the robot drive to a specified position, speed is regulated by a proportional-controller.


api.setDribbler(power);

Enable/Disable the dribbler (power is a boolean)


api.shoot();

Shoot the ball if it is in the dribbler. If there is no ball nothing will happen.


api.rotate(angle);

Rotate the robot with a certain speed. Positive speed values are clockwise, negative counter clockwise rotation.

Sensors

api.ballAngle();

Get the angle of the robot to the ball. Unit depends on configuration.


api.ballIntensity();

Get the intensity of the ball. Comparable to a real analog IR-Sensor (aka TSOP). Maximum value is about 5000, to a minimum of 0 at about 150 cm from the robot.


api.ballDistance();

Get the distance in meters of the robot to the ball. Distance is from the border of the robot to the border of the ball. This means if the robot touches the ball the distance is zero.


api.ballInDribbler();

Returns a true if the ball is in the dribbler (doesn't require the dribbler to be enabled)


api.onLine();

Check if the robot is on the line, returns true or false.


api.lineAngle();

Returns the angle of the line under the robot. If the robot is on the line on the front it will return 0.


api.distanceToWall(direction);

Returns the distance to the wall in the given direction.


api.realDistance(direction);

Returns the distance in the given direction with influences like the goal (other robots aren't calculated yet).


api.goalAngle();

Get the angle to the middle of the opponents goal (absolute value).


api.currentRotation();

Returns the orientation of the robot (unit depends on configuration). Clockwise means positive, negative counterclockwise values. This means that there is a jump at +/-180 degrees.


api.rotationVelocity();

Returns the current angular velocity of the robot (rotation around the z-Axis). Comparable to a gyro sensor.

Constants

Directions (for distanceToWall and realDistance) can be:

api.distance.FRONT
api.distance.RIGHT
api.distance.BACK
api.distance.LEFT

Configuration

api.degree

Change the angle unit by setting api.degree to one of the following values (default is Angle.DEGREE):

Angle.DEGREE
Angle.RADIAN
You can’t perform that action at this time.
