Abstract

RoboCup 2012, the 16th in the annual series of RoboCup International Competitions, was held from June 18th to 24th, 2012 in the International Exhibition and Convention Center of the World Trade Center in Mexico City, Mexico. This book documents the event, and serves as the proceedings of the sixteenth edition of the RoboCup Symposium, that is associated with the competition every year. As one of its features, RoboCup aims to transfer research results and technological advances in Robotics and related areas from the laboratory to the real world. The annual RoboCup competitions play a particular role towards this purpose. An autonomous robot is typically a large-scale system that integrates a variety of techniques from different domains, and thus needs the extensive effort of a whole group. Meanwhile, different groups throughout the world have developed different robots based on different ideas, concepts and approaches. Therefore, it is crucial to have these endeavors tested and compared under the same conditions. RoboCup competitions have provided such tests and comparisons on a world-class scale annually. Each year the conditions are enhanced deliberatively by the community, to keep the tests challenging, fruitful, and approaching closer to real world conditions. The RoboCup International Symposium has been an indispensable part of RoboCup, where researchers exchange and discuss their cutting edge ideas and results related to the initiative, especially those that are stimulated and tested by the competitions. Therefore, the symposium provides a unique forum for exploring and disseminating insights and other results of the worldwide efforts as a part of the RoboCup initiative. For the 16th RoboCup International Symposium, we received 64 submissions. The submissions were reviewed carefully by the International Program Committee, which consisted of 54 members. Each paper was reviewed by three reviewers. Overall, we accepted 25 of those (39\%), of which 12 (19\%) were chosen for oral presentation. The symposium also included two invited talks, by Edwin Olson and Martial Hebert. All accepted papers were presented as posters during the symposium. The decision on the best paper award, given to the authors of ``Lateral Disturbance Rejection for the Nao Robot'', was made by an Award Selection Committee, based on the results of the review process, and the presentation of the three nominated papers at the symposium. The two other nominees were ``Robot Localization Using Natural Landmarks'', and ``Throwing Skill Optimization through Synchronization and Desynchronization of Degree of Freedom''. This book begins with papers from some of the Champion teams in the 2012 RoboCup competitions. These papers both serve as an insight into the technical challenges emphasized by each different event, and also document some of the key technical innovations that were introduced in 2012. The papers that were nominated for the best paper award come next, followed by the rest of the papers that were accepted for oral presentation at the symposium. Finally, the papers that were accepted for poster presentation round out the remainder of the book. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Program Committee members and reviewers for their valuable work, especially their constructive comments and suggestions about the submissions. We also thank all of the authors for their contributions. We are grateful to the Award Selection Committee members for their careful evaluation and decision of the best paper award. We give our special thanks to the local organizing committee for their effective and efficient arrangements and support to the symposium.
