RoboCup
The Learning Agents Research Group (LARG) participates actively in the annual RoboCup robot soccer competitions. The goal of the RoboCup initiative is to advance the state of the art in AI, robotics, and other fields using the game of soccer, disaster rescue, and domestic robotics as testebed domains.
