What is RoboCup?

RoboCup is an international joint project to promote artificial intelligence (AI), mobile robotics, and related field. It is an attempt to foster AI and robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. RoboCup chose to use soccer game as a central topic of research, aiming at innovations to be applied for socially significant problems and industries.

The ultimate goal of the RoboCup project is By 2050, develop a team of fully autonomous humanoid robots that can win against the human world champion team in soccer.

In order for a robot team to actually perform a soccer game, various technologies must be incorporated including: design principles of autonomous agents, multi-agent collaboration, strategy acquisition, real-time sensor data processing, real-time reasoning, robotics, and sensor-fusion. RoboCup is a task for a team of multiple fast-moving robots under a dynamic environment.

One of the major application of RoboCup technologies is search and rescue in large scale disaster. RoboCup initiated a RoboCup Rescue project to specifically promote research in socially significant issues.


Simulation League

RoboCup Simulation League consists of a number of competitions with simulated soccer matches as the main event.

There are no actual robots in this league but spectators can watch the action on a large screen, which looks like a giant computer game. Each simulated robot player may have its own play strategy and characteristic and every simulated team actually consists of a collection of programmes. Many computers are networked together in order for this competition to take place.The games last for about 10 minutes, with each half being 5 minutes duration.


 Zigorat Team

Zigorat is an inter-university robotic research foundation, setting  it's goal to help robotic research cooperation between universities. Main idea is to develop a multi-agent system to investigate a wide range of Artificial Intelligent (AI) algorithms. We take part in the Robot Soccer Worldcup (RoboCup) and its local events as well.

As well as cooperation between universities, Zigorat also thinks of assisting other groups by releasing it's project code, writing tutorials about AI algorithms, designs and concepts, and some basic tutorials for the simulators used in robocup.

We gained 2nd place in robocup 2007 games @ Atlanta, and we were one of the finalists of the IranOpen 2007 games @ Tehran.
