RoboCup in the News

Posted 18 Jun 2002 at 12:41 UTC by steve Share This

There are two new articles on the RoboCup Competition this week. The first is a National Geographic article that includes a small photo gallery of RoboCup robots. The second is a Financial Times article. A couple of other Robocup articles have also come out recently including a BBC article and a Wired article. The RoboCup competition kicks off on June 19th and runs through the 23rd in the Fukuoka Dome, Fukuoka, Japan.


USAR course there as well, posted 24 Jun 2002 at 12:33 UTC by josborn » (Journeyer)

It's mentioned in passing in one of the articles, but along with the RoboCup soccer competition, there's also a RoboCupRescue league this year, based on the course developed at NIST. There's more information about the competition here.

The course was developed here at NIST by several guys that I work with (who are either still in Japan or on their way back...they didn't take me, those bums! :-), I know quite a bit about it now, having had to take the whole thing apart for the trip to Seattle for the AAAI conference and build all the arenas again when it got back, not to mention having to write a simulation of it. :-)

Later this summer we're taking it to Edmonton, Alberta (the one in Japan is actually a copy of the one that was built here) for the 2002 AAAI conference. It'll be used as part of the Mobile Robot Competition there.
