Introducing Simulation Middle Size: A New Soccer League to RoboCup

Mansour Jamzad, Mahdi Asadpour

Abstract

There is a big difference between Simulation League and Middle Size League in RoboCup, that is, a program written for the former can not be easily transferred to the latter. Since the final aim is real robotics, in this paper we suggest a new match for RoboCup Soccer which can fill this gap. We designed and implemented a Modeled Robot Soccer Server most like Middle Size RoboCup that contains a Soccer Field, Ball, Referee, etc. Each participated team should provide not only his robots controller program but also the hardware model of own robots in VRML97 format, using which our system will model a simulation version of them. As an implementation of our ideas, we modeled and simulated two teams of soccer robots and present the set up method for the match between them. According to these setups, two teams will play and the scores are calculated by the automated referee.
