First Nao Goal

Using the first draft of our open loop walk, Marvin scored the first goal for any Nao in our lab! With competitions fast approaching, we are planning on taking advantage of our upcoming spring break to whip our robots into shape. On the menu: adding sensor feedback to close the loop on the walk, porting to NaoQi 1.2, tuning localization, and starting to work on positioning.

The open loop walk showed in the video still has a tendency to build up harmonic oscillations and tip over, but with a little support, and a brand new behavior, the robot is able to push the ball into the goal.
