SimuroSot

Their main objective is to allow researchers to develop control algorithms and team strategies without the need for complex and costly hardware setup. 

Teams are encouraged to use the simulation platform for the evaluation of their algorithms and eventually to participate in the Middle League MiroSOT which is exposed to real world conditions.

Introduction

The original SimuroSot includes Middle Size and Large Size categories. Their main objective is to allow researchers to develop control algorithms and team strategies without the need for complex and costly hardware setup. Teams are encouraged to use the simulation platform for the evaluation of their algorithms and eventually to participate in the Middle League MiroSOT which is exposed to real-world conditions.

As time passed, the FIRA robot soccer has grown from MiroSot to many new categories, such as HuroCup、 RoboSot and AndroSot. And nowadays, the main flag game has changed from car-like MiroSot to human-like HuroCup. And this year, A totally new FIRA Air was also proposed.

So to follow this change and also broaden the game range, the SimuroSot committee would like to add some new categories. In order to promote the game, a 10-year milestone for SimuroSot is proposed as follows:

  • 2017~2020: Based on ROS and Gazebo, a simulation of the TurtleBot would be used to develop some new category, and the rules would be similar to RoboSot. At the beginning, the RoboSot Game & a Challenge would be applied. And to make the simulation more real profit, a competition for transferring the algorithm to real-world robot would also be conducted. And hopefully, a standard robot such as TurtleBot or some other similar will be applied to do it in real.
  • 2021~2026: Based on ROS and Gazebo, a simulation of the Thormang or Atlas would be used to develop some new category, and the rules would be similar to HuroSot. And to make the simulation more real, a transfer of the algorithm to real-world Robot would also be conducted.

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.
