Leagues - FIRA Sports - RoboSot

RoboSot

The RoboSot Competition will consist of a series of challenges as well as the traditional soccer competition.

Research on mobile robot platforms is receiving an increasing share of attention, especially in the area of household domestic appliances. The problems and challenges facing the development of these platforms are many, varied and often significantly different from the problems faced in both the smaller sized and humanoid leagues.

 

Introduction

Research on mobile robot platforms is receiving an increasing share of attention, especially in the area of household domestic appliances. The problems and challenges facing the development of these platforms are many, varied and often significantly different from the problems faced in both the smaller sized and humanoid leagues.

Compared to the smaller sized leagues, these robots are fully autonomous and this brings many challenges in the areas of hardware design, communication, co-operation, intelligence, and sense. While in comparison to the humanoid leagues, they have the flexibility to employ non-human like sensing and motion systems. This creates a much faster platform and this alone brings challenges in sensing, locating, and planning to the fore. It is our goal that the RoboSot competition will be a dynamic competition that continually shifts its goalposts from year to year to meet the problems and challenges that arise in this field. We also hope that competing teams will also find the challenges along this path both interesting and rewarding.

Welcome to the Federation of International Robot-Sport Association

Robot soccer can be portrayed as a competition of advanced robot technology within a confined space. It offers a challenging arena to the young generation and researchers working with autonomous mobile robotic systems. It is hoped that FIRA’s flagship event, called the FIRA Robot World Cup (or the FIRA Cup in short), which started in 1996, together with many other FIRA events, will help generate interests in robotics in the young minds.

Through these events, FIRA hopes to help them better understand and appreciate, with interests, the scientific concepts and technological developments involved. FIRA believes that some of these interests will fuel scientific and engineering skills that ultimately develop into research outcomes to serve mankind in a variety of ways.

Ever since its establishment, FIRA has had venues for its annual FIRA Cup in Australia, Brazil, China, France and Korea. Making progress over successive years since 1996, FIRA Cup has now attained world recognition as a robot festival.
