RoboCup Junior RoboCup Junior is a project-oriented educational initiative that sponsors local, regional and international robotic events for young students up through age 19.
PURPOSE Purpose is to foster Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics research by providing a standard problem where a wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined.
RoboCup The ultimate goal of RoboCup is that by the middle of the 21st century, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall play (and win!) a soccer game against the (human) world champions.
RoboCup Challenges RoboCupJunior offers several challenges, each emphasizing cooperative, problem- solving and task-achievement aspects. dance soccer rescue
Soccer Challenge 2-on-2 teams of autonomous mobile robots play games in a highly dynamic environment, tracking a special light-emitting ball in an enclosed field landmarked in shades of gray. RoboCup Junior Soccer Rules for 2007 RCJ soccer field building plans
Rescue Challenge Robots identify victims within re-created disaster scenarios, varying in complexity from line-following on a flat surface to negotiating paths through obstacles on uneven terrain.
