Since its creation 5 years ago, team Imaginarium has always strived to consistently change and improve on its robots designs and performance year on year. As our team name would suggest, we are a team that focuses on the power of imagination and always pursuing a greater ideal in robotics engineering, turning aspirations imagination into reality.

For the past few years, our team has been craving an independence from stock parts available to the robocup market as we believe in designing and creating completely unique robots from the ground up. Whilst this may not guarantee our ability to win Robocup competitions yearly, we believe that in the true spirit of Robocup this yearly R&D work and the insatiable need to constantly improve is extremely important. This means that we are constantly searching for ways to independently customize and manufacture parts or systems that would serve to advance our robot's level of performance. Our methodology divides our robot's engineering into 4 main sections: mechanical, electronics, sensory and software.

Mechanically, this team has been improving yearly, both in terms of materials and methods. For example, in place of fragile hand-cut plastic sheets to form our robot's chassis from years ago, our robots currently boast laser cut/CNC aluminium plates that were even more recently upgrade to carbon fiber. We have also progressed from using stock plastic robocup wheels, which lacked the traction we desired, to working with local manufacturer, LOCO technologies, in designing and manufacturing our own aluminium omni-directional wheels. We brought this a step further this year by coming up with our own original omni-wheel design and mass producing it for our school teams in China. This design corrected issues in the previous wheel that hindered optimal performance. Other mechanical design improvement also includes selection and upgrading of motors, motor drivers, designing a modular system and improving on our placement of components in the robot.

For electronics, we have adapted the immensely popular Arduino platform for our own purposes. Before the Arduino, we used Lego Mindstorms RCX and NXT bricks as the brains of our robot. However, the capabilities of those controllers were soon maxed out, leaving us with an evolutionary dead-end in 2008. Thankfully, through much research we managed to find out about the Arduino Diecimila, and have not looked back since then. As our robots needed to work in intense environments with lots of collisions and possible overheating, we could not simply leave wires dangling around like simple "Arduino hacks" and thus made our own shields to hold everything in place. From stripboard shields we went on to design and etch our own shields with Fritzing and Ferric Chloride, and it was not long before we did away with the Arduino board altogether and used the AVR chips directly. Currently we are experimenting with another controller, the Maple board, which has a faster ARM Cortex processor.

The game of robosoccer poses some unique challenges from a sensory perspective. Robots in robosoccer are required to track an IR ball that sends IR waveforms radially. All teams in Singapore currently use kit-based IR sensors that are able to sense the direction of the ball with a resolution of 7 directions within 180 degrees. Using such a pre-made sensor makes things simpler but we're currently researching into building our own IR sensors that will be able to sense with a resolution of 12 directions per 180 degrees, allowing for more precision and accuracy in game play. This is a technology that many international teams have acquired and we're hoping to be the first to bring this to Robocup Junior Singapore. We're also researching into the use of accelerometers to make our robot's movements more accurate. Other sensors that our team uses includes ultrasonic sensors and compass sensors.

When we moved on from Lego to the Arduino, some of our team were brought away from the friendly graphical interface of RoboLab to the less inviting text-based programming of the Processing-based IDE. Eventually we all made the leap and are extremely comfortable programming the Arduino, which was what it was designed for. However, even with the software's capabilities, we still had to learn how to maximise it. From a simple variable debugging to multi-processor communication, we learnt how to code them with help from the open-source community that came with the Arduino platform. Eventually, we realised that code snippets without explanations and a systematic manner of organising things would make code that becomes hard to maintain and extend; this led to an overhaul of the code with proper routines and hardware abstraction, which is also self-documenting.
