RoboCup: Robot World Cup

  title={RoboCup: Robot World Cup},
  author={H. Kitano and M. Asada and I. Noda and H. Matsubara},
In an attempt to promote artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics research, RoboCup (Robot World Cup) was organized to provide a common environment for the evaluation of various theories, algorithms, and agent architectures [2]. In order for the robot (physical robot and software agent) to play a soccer game reasonably well, a wide range of technologies need to be integrated. The range of technologies spans both AI and robotics research, including the design of autonomous agents, multi-agent… Expand
