In order to facilitate technical progress based on the RoboCup
challenge, we offer basic resources and opportunities.
- The RoboCup Challenge Committee:
The RoboCup Challenge Committee will be formed to execute the
challenge initiative. The commitee will include members of the
international executive committee for RoboCup and distinguished
researchers not directly involved in RoboCup.
The committee will create specific tasks and criteria for evaluation,
as well as providing technical advice for the challengers.
In the RoboCup home page, basic software resources
and technical information can be obtained.
Software includes the Soccer
Server system, which is a server system for the simulation track, and
various sample teams. In addition, sample test sequences
will be provided. The home page also provides a set of papers and
technical documents related to RoboCup.
- A series of RoboCup competitions are planned to
provide opportunities to test ideas. As international events, we are
planning to have RoboCup-98 in Paris (The Official Event of the World
Cup), RoboCup-98 Victoria (as a part of IROS-98 conference), and
RoboCup-98 Singapore (as a part of PRICAI-98 Conference). Several
local competitions will be organized by local committee in each
region. The final evaluation and exhibit of the results will be made
Workshops will be organized at major international conferences, as
well as at local workshops, in order to faciliate exchange of
information, to have technical discussions, and to get feedback on the
status of the challengers in relation to the overall framework of the
