The day has finally come when robots are completely replacing humans, at least on the soccer field! Meet Faro, the robotic ODROID-powered goalkeeper, part of a team of advanced humanoid robots that belong to the Robocup Foundation, whose goal is to eventually defeat a World Cup level human soccer team. Using an ODROID-C1, the Gadjah Mada Robotic Team has developed algorithms that work with a camera, compass, and gyroscopic sensors to predict where the ball will be traveling in real-time and prevent a goal from being scored.
