FoosFighter - Robotic Foosball


#1

Over the past little while, myself and a few of my classmates have been working on creating robotic foosball for our fourth year design project using the ODrive V3.3 and stock motors and encoders. We just finished a demo of a single functioning rod.

The CAD of our demo setup is seen below. Ideally we will clamp the board down for other tests, as the board moves quite a bit when testing as seen above.

We have a website where we will post content in addition to on this forum:

The project is due in March, so now that we have completely motion for 1 rod, we will be replicating the motion to complete the setup. We plan on using a ZED camera for ball detection.

Great work! I’m looking forward to seeing your progress!

Modelling The Table

We quickly created a CAD of the foosball table we currently have.

After the demo of 1 rod, we felt confident replicating the setup for all the rods. Below is a rough image of what the final design will look like (as of now). We want to make sure we make no permanent changes to the table with our design.
