Abstract—This paper proposes an alternate method to obtain position and orientation of multiple soccer robots in global vision system. The proposed method uses high-angle shot of camera as a substitute to bird-eye angle, and employs a specially designed robot markers that contain cues for the detection of the position, orientation, and IDs of the robots. Perspective transformation to normalize the perspective arena image obtained from high-angle shot is utilized in this method. Three testing phase, namely unit testing, integration testing, and system testing are conducted. The results of unit testing are: four arenas are detected from four different placements in the room, the robot detection has an error of 0.86%, and ball detection has an error of 0.4%. Integration testing obtains the global orientation of the robot, which has an error of 1.1%. From the result of system testing, the best camera resolution is 360p with 50% minimum camera brightness. The result of system testing also proves that the application system can be implemented in different rooms and with different camera positions.
