TITLE: Cooperative Sensing and Acting in Robotic Soccer
AFFILIATION: Institut fur Informatik, Albert-Ludwigs-Universitat Freiburg
DATE: Friday 20 September 2002
TIME: 2:00noon - 3.00pm
PLACE: CSE K17 1st Floor Seminar Room
Robotic soccer is a challenging research problem because problems in robotics, artificial intelligence, multi-agent systems and real-time reasoning have to be solved in order to create a successful team of robotic soccer players. In the talk, I will concentrate on cooperative sensing methods and on team play approaches that have been developed for the CS Freiburg team, which has been RoboCup world champion in the mid-size league three times.
