The operational traffic control problem comes up in a number of different contexts. It involves the coordinated movement of a set of vehicles and has by and large the flavor of a scheduling problem. In trying to apply scheduling techniques to the problem, one notes that this is a job-shop scheduling problem with blocking, a type of scheduling problem that(More)
techniques and explore new problems. Moreover, problems and solutions can easily be communicated because soccer is a well-known game. Our intention in building a robotic soccer team and participating in RoboCup-98 was, first, to demonstrate the usefulness of the self-localization methods we have developed. Second, we wanted to show that playing soccer based(More)
Robotic soccer is a challenging research domain because problems in robotics, artiicial intelligence, multi-agent systems and real-time reasoning have to be solved in order to create a successful team of robotic soccer players. In this paper, we describe the key components of the CS Freiburg team. We focus on the self-localization and object recognition(More)
This paper describes the CS Freiburg Team for the RoboCup '98 contest. Our main focus lies in developing reliable and robust perception technology and basic behaviors for playing soccer with mobile robots. We present the hard-and software components of our robots including a self-built device for kicking the ball. Furthermore, we show how some key(More)

Robotic soccer is a challenging research domain that can be used to explore new problems and to demonstrate new techniques. We participated in RoboCup'98 in order to explore the problems of cooperation in multi-robot-systems and to demonstrate our self-localization techniques based on laser range nders. In this paper we sketch the main technical points of(More)
