Except for logistics, all teams are run on ad-hoc basis by persons from other teams on short notice. We would like to improve our exposure not only internally at ASML, but also outside of ASML!

 

 

Introduction

 

The Falcons is a team participating in the RoboCup Middle Size League (MSL) of autonomous soccer playing robots. All ~30 team members are ASML employees, who share the same passion. We develop the hardware, software and tools all within our team. ASML provides facilities and budget for parts, but the hours we spend are not counted as working hours.

 

We have our own facility in Veldhoven at De Locht (10 minutes from the main campus). Here we meet multiple evenings per week to design, improve and further develop our robots, and have the possibility to practice with the robots on our own soccer field. We regularly organize a practice match against the VDL-RobotSports team to check our progress and identify areas where we can improve further.

 

Typically we play two international tournaments per year; Our ultimate goal is to become world champion in the MSL!

 

 

 

 

 

Upcoming Challenges

 

Based on our current performance, we are developing a completely new hardware platform from scratch, have radically changed our Vision system and are improving our software to be more flexible and robust. To meet these challenges, we are looking for a Mechanical Designer

 

 

Support Officer Description

Except for logistics, all teams are run on ad-hoc basis by persons from other teams on short notice. We would like to improve our exposure internally at ASML, but also outside of ASML. For example, be present at technical events in the brainport region, ASML burendag or show progress and new developments on social media.

To achieve this, we’re searching for people who can generate ideas and bring them to reality. As these teams are currently unstaffed, you need to be able to start from scratch.

You can join multiple teams, also from other branches.

 

Expectations

 

The Falcons is a fun team working on complex, autonomous robots. We do not have a formal, “ASML-like” organization in place; we are all volunteers doing this as our hobby. This gives our members a lot of freedom, but also a lot of responsibility: when the match starts, the robots need to be ready to win!

 

Therefore we are looking for people that:

  • Are employed by ASML Fix or N1 Flex
  • Can make themselves available for at least 1 evening per week
  • Can work independently and are self-driven
  • Like to work on technical hobby projects in their spare time
