Robot Soccer
The Learning Agents Research Group (LARG) uses robot soccer extensively as a testbed domain for multiagent systems, machine learning, robotics, and autonomous agents. We compete regularly in the annual RoboCup robot soccer competitions. Some of our research uses real robots, and some is in simulation.
