The Robot World Cup Initiative (RoboCup) is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. The rst RoboCup competition will be held at IJCAI-97, Nagoya. In order for a robot team to actually perform a soccer game, various technologies must be(More)
This paper describes Soccer Server, a simulator of the game of soccer designed as a test-bench for evaluating multi-agent systems and cooperative algorithms. In real life, successful soccer teams require many qualities, such as basic ball control skills, the ability to carry out plans, and teamwork. We believe that simulating such behaviors is a signi cant(More)

RoboCup Challenge o ers a set of challenges for intelligent agent researchers using a friendly competition in a dynamic, real-time, multiagent domain. While RoboCup in general envisions longer range challenges over the next few decades, RoboCup Challenge presents three speci c challenges for the next two years: (i) learning of individual agents and teams;(More)

RoboCup is an increasingly successful attempt to promote the full integration of AI and robotics research. The most prominent feature of RoboCup is that it provides the researchers with the opportunity to demonstrate their research results as a form of competition in a dynamically changing hostile environment, defined as the international standard game(More)
From the standpoint of multi-agent systems, soccer (association football), which is just one of usual team sports, make a good example of problems in the real world which is moderately abstracted. We have chosen soccer as one of standard problems for the study on multi-agent systems, and we are now developing a soccer server, which provides a common(More)
The RoboCup Soccer Server and associated client code is a growing body of software infrastructure that enables a wide variety of multiagent systems research. The Soccer Server is a multiagent environment that supports 22 independent agents interacting in a complex, real-time environment. AI researchers have been using the Soccer Server to pursue research in(More)
