An Architecture for Action Selection in Robotic Soccer (2001)
Peter Stone and David McAllester
CMUnited-99 was the 1999 RoboCup robotic soccer simulator league champion. In the RoboCup-2000 competition, CMUnited-99 was entered again and despite being publicly available for the entire year, it still finished in 4th place. This paper presents some of the key elements behind ATT-CMUnited-2000, one of the three teams that finished ahead of CMUnited-99 in RoboCup-2000 out of thirty four entrants. Playing against CMUnited-99, ATT-CMUnited-2000 scores an average of about 8 goals per opponent goal. This paper describes some of the key innovations that make this improvement possible.
