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 first RoboCup competition was held at IJCAI-97, Nagoya. In order for a robot team to actually perform a soccer game, various technologies must be incorporated including: design principles of autonomous agents, multi-agent collaboration, strategy acquisition, real-time reasoning, robotics, and sensorfusion. RoboCup is a task for… Expand
RoboCup as a strategic initiative to advance technologies
TLDR
While the practical issues have been mainly attacked in the real robot leagues, the more strategic issues in multi-agent environments have been focused in the simulation league, such as teamwork among agents, agent modeling, and multi- agent learning which are argued in the rest of the paper. Expand
The RoboCup Challenge
TLDR
Technical challenges involved in RoboCup are described, a report of RoboCUP-97 mainly focusing on real robot competitions, and future perspectives are described. Expand
