The Soccer Goal Light project was one of seven projects that my team could chose to complete to demonstrate proper computer programming technique and understanding. Our goal was to create a control system for a local soccer field so that when a ball entered the goal, a light would blink for ten seconds. The program also had to differentiate between the ball and any players or other objects that entered the goal.

Ideally, the ball would have a sensor in it, the ball on the right. However, there was no way to do this using VEX kits. So, we just did a representation of a ball passing through a goal Final Solution Image Final Program + Description Conclusion Questions Final Program Sketch
Solution 1. What was the most difficult part of the problem? The most difficult part of the project was trying to figure out which sensor would work the right way. Also, trying to see which would detect the difference between your hand and the ball. 2. List and describe two
VEX Controlled Soccer Goal A project that combined elements of VEX Robotics and RobotC to fulfill a design brief. Team members were me, TJ Manning, and Jacob Wellnitz.
Your team has been asked to design a control system for the local soccer field that can detect when the ball has entered the goal. A light must blink for 10 seconds after a goal is scored. Remember, the goalie and others will also be crossing the goal frequently.
What the program does is tell the cortex what to do when the light sensor reads at a certain value. This value is how illuminated the soccer ball is, which is high than the value read for people. As the light sensor hits the value of 480 (higher the more light it projects) the flashlight, perched at the top of the goal, will flash for ten seconds.
(The pictures shown above show different views of our final design for our soccer goal. On top you can see the main vex piece and the flashlight on the top of the metal roof. Also, we attached 5 light sensors total on both metal sides of the goal in assure that they will be able to tell the light to turn on as soon as the ball passes through. Finally, we colored the ball black so the light sensors will know to only turn on when it detects the ball and not the goalie.) (The pictures on the ...
Design Brief. Your team has been asked to design a control system for the local soccer field that can detect when the ball has entered the goal. A light must blink for 10 seconds after a goal is scored. Remember, the goalie and others will also be crossing the goal frequently. You may need to modify the ball so that your device can differentiate between the soccer ball and other objects.
