Abstract

RoboCup-2000, the Fourth Robot World Cup Soccer Games and Conferences, was held from August 27th to September 3rd, 2000, at the Melbourne Exhibition Center in Melbourne, Australia. Like the previous international RoboCup events---RoboCup-97 in Nagoya, Japan; RoboCup-98 in Paris, France; and RoboCup-99 in Stockholm, Sweden---RoboCup-2000 included a technical workshop as well as several robotic soccer competitions. RoboCup-2000 introduced the first RoboCup Jr. competition for children, as well as demonstrations of humanoid robots and of the RoboCup-Rescue disaster rescue simulator. This book documents RoboCup-2000. It consists of (i) an overview; (ii) championship papers by the winners of the competitions; (iii) the finalist papers for the RoboCup challenge awards; (iv) the papers and posters presented at the workshop; and (v) descriptions of the teams that competed. The book begins with an overview article introducing the competitions and demonstrations and including the scores of all of the games in the four competition leagues: the simulation league, the small-size robot (F180) league, the middle-size robot (F2000) league, and the Sony legged robot league. The following section presents the championship papers from the winners of these leagues. The RoboCup challenge awards are distinctions that are given annually to the RoboCup-related research that shows the most potential to advance their respective fields. In RoboCup-2000, the challenge award finalists were selected from among the workshop papers. The four selected finalist papers appear in the next section. The annual RoboCup workshop provides a forum for RoboCup researchers to exchange ideas that are generally applicable across the different RoboCup leagues and/or that are of general scientific interest. The RoboCup-2000 workshop received more than 60 submissions, from which 20 were selected for full presentation and an additional 20 were selected for poster presentation. These research papers form the main body of this book. The book concludes with descriptions of most of the more than 80 teams that competed in RoboCup-2000. These team descriptions serve to catalog the full range of researchers and approaches that have been applied to the challenges put forth by RoboCup. The next international RoboCup events will be held in Seattle, USA (2001) and in Fukuoka, Japan (2002). In addition to all existing RoboCup events, they are scheduled to introduce (i) RoboCup-Rescue disaster rescue competitions for the transfer of ideas and techniques developed in the soccer domain to a related task, and (ii) a humanoid robot competition as a step towards the long-term goal of creating a full team of humanoid robots that compete on a real soccer field. We look forward to continuing research innovations and exciting demonstrations of robotics and AI technology in these and other future RoboCup events.

                  RoboCup-2000, the Fourth Robot World Cup Soccer
                  Games and Conferences, was held from August 27th to
                  September 3rd, 2000, at the Melbourne Exhibition
                  Center in Melbourne, Australia.  Like the previous
                  international RoboCup events---RoboCup-97 in Nagoya,
                  Japan; RoboCup-98 in Paris, France; and RoboCup-99
                  in Stockholm, Sweden---RoboCup-2000 included a

                  competitions.  RoboCup-2000 introduced the first
                  RoboCup Jr. competition for children, as well as
                  demonstrations of humanoid robots and of the
                  RoboCup-Rescue disaster rescue simulator.
                  This book documents RoboCup-2000.  It consists of
                  (i) an overview; (ii) championship papers by the
                  winners of the competitions; (iii) the finalist
                  papers for the RoboCup challenge awards; (iv) the
                  papers and posters presented at the workshop; and
                  (v) descriptions of the teams that competed.
                  The book begins with an overview article introducing
                  the competitions and demonstrations and including
                  the scores of all of the games in the four

                  league.  The following section presents the
                  championship papers from the winners of these
                  leagues.
                  The RoboCup challenge awards are distinctions that
                  are given annually to the RoboCup-related research
                  that shows the most potential to advance their
                  respective fields.  In RoboCup-2000, the challenge
                  award finalists were selected from among the
                  workshop papers. The four selected finalist papers
                  appear in the next section.
                  The annual RoboCup workshop provides a forum for
                  RoboCup researchers to exchange ideas that are
                  generally applicable across the different RoboCup
                  leagues and/or that are of general scientific
                  interest.  The RoboCup-2000 workshop received more
                  than 60 submissions, from which 20 were selected for
                  full presentation and an additional 20 were selected
                  for poster presentation.  These research papers form
                  the main body of this book.
                  The book concludes with descriptions of most of the
                  more than 80 teams that competed in RoboCup-2000.
                  These team descriptions serve to catalog the full
                  range of researchers and approaches that have been
                  applied to the challenges put forth by RoboCup.
                  The next international RoboCup events will be held
                  in Seattle, USA (2001) and in Fukuoka, Japan (2002).
                  In addition to all existing RoboCup events, they are
                  scheduled to introduce (i) RoboCup-Rescue disaster
                  rescue competitions for the transfer of ideas and
                  techniques developed in the soccer domain to a
                  related task, and (ii) a humanoid robot competition
                  as a step towards the long-term goal of creating a
                  full team of humanoid robots that compete on a real
                  soccer field.  We look forward to continuing
