The RoboKeeper is just fascinating. German Engineering brought this high technology to life and created the fastest goalie in the world.
Two cameras are considered as the eyes of the RoboKeeper who take 90 pictures in a second. These are installed over of the goal, which follow the ball’s movement and action. The ball’s color needs to differentiate itself from the Environment.
The Image processing software is able to calculate the arrival point of the ball just by the taken pictures of the camera.
From there, the information is sent to the motor control, which is responsible for the RoboKeeper’s actions.
Shots can reach the velocity of 100 km/h and so this whole process operates in less than a second.
The shooting line is 9 Meters away from the goal, which gives the figure only 0,3 seconds to react and move to the right position. The RoboKeeper accelerates 20 times faster than a Formula 1 car.
