Abstract 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 definition, which the gamut of intelligent robotics research issues are naturally involved. This article describes what we have learned… Expand

Cooperation without Deliberation: A Minimal Behavior-based Approach to Multi-Robot Teams
TLDR
It is claimed that a strict behavior-based approach can scale to higher levels of complexity than many robotics researchers assume, and that the resulting systems are in many cases more efficient and robust than those that rely on “classical AI” deliberative approaches. Expand
