Abstract

The UT Austin Villa Four-Legged Team for RoboCup 2006 was a fourth-time entry in the ongoing series of RoboCup legged league competitions. The team development began in mid-January of 2003 without any prior familiarity with the Aibos. After entering a fairly non-competitive team in RoboCup 2003, the team made several important advances. By the July 2004 competition that took place in Lisbon, Portugal, it was one of the top few teams. After those first two years of intense development, the team's third and fourth years were devoted more to spin-off research than to development related to the competition. Building off of the team's previous three technical reports \citeVilla03-legged-tech,Villa04-legged-tech,Villa05-legged-tech, this report details the changes made to the team between RoboCup 2005 and RoboCup 2006 in Bremen. Taken together, this and the previous technical reports provide the history and details of the UT Austin Villa RoboCup Four-Legged team and the associated research in our lab.

The UT Austin Villa Four-Legged Team for RoboCup
2006 was a fourth-time entry in the ongoing series
of RoboCup legged league competitions. The team
development began in mid-January of 2003 without any
prior familiarity with the Aibos. After entering a
fairly non-competitive team in RoboCup 2003, the
team made several important advances. By the July
2004 competition that took place in Lisbon,
Portugal, it was one of the top few teams. After
those first two years of intense development, the
team's third and fourth years were devoted more to
spin-off research than to development related to the
competition. Building off of the team's previous
three technical
reports~\cite{Villa03-legged-tech,Villa04-legged-tech,Villa05-legged-tech},
this report details the changes made to the team
between RoboCup 2005 and RoboCup 2006 in Bremen.
Taken together, this and the previous technical
reports provide the history and details of the UT
Austin Villa RoboCup Four-Legged team and the
associated research in our lab.
