What is Robocup?

RoboCup is an International initiative to foster research in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence, using robotic soccer. More details can be found on the RoboCup official website http://www.robocup.org.

What is the F-180 League?

The F180 league also called the small-size robot league, is one of the five major leagues in RoboCup robot soccer games (i.e. Simulation League, Small-Size Robot League (f-180), Middle-Size Robot League (f-2000), Sony Legged Robot League  and Humanoid League)

In the small-size league, each team consists of no more than five robots of 18 cm diameter. Color markers are placed on the top of each robot for identification and tracking purposes. An off-board camera is usually placed 4 meters above the field. The game is held between two teams  on a green carpeted field  with an orange golf ball and conducted by a referee box and a human referee.
