About RoboCup Singapore Open 2011

The RoboCup Singapore Open 2011 is organized by Singapore Polytechnic and Science Centre Singapore.

RoboCup Singapore Open is an annual robotic competition organized by RoboCup Singapore National Committee to promote interest and exchanges of idea in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and related technologies in Singapore; keeping in line with the international research and education initiative, RoboCup.

RoboCup Singapore Open is organized with the aim to promote interests in robotics and its related technology to the public in general; and to students, researchers in particular. It aims to serve as a platform for participants to exchange ideas, share knowhow, compare strategies and gauge their performance in competition. In addition, RoboCup Singapore Open also serves as a selection panel for selecting teams that will represent Singapore in various competition league and categories of the annual international RoboCup competition. RoboCup Singapore Open also hopes to attract the participation of teams from overseas for mutual exchange of ideas, experience and international friendship.

About RoboCup

The Robot World Cup Initiative is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotic research by providing a standard problem, playing soccer, where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined.

Multi-agent systems represent a growing area of research in the AI community, but mostly due to the variety of applications in which multi-agent systems have been used, contacts and exchanges between groups of researchers working in this domain have not been so frequent. The RoboCup offers the possibility to confront and exchange ideas in a common domain and encourages researchers to establish and keeping contacts with each other.

The RoboCup Federation proposed the ultimate goal of the RoboCup Initiative to be stated as follows:

By 2050, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall win a soccer game, complying with the official FIFA rules, against the winner of the most recent World Cup of Human Soccer.”

Official website of RoboCup: http://www.robocup.org





RoboCup chose to use soccer 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.



One major application of RoboCup technologies is search and rescue in large scale disaster situations. RoboCup initiated RoboCupRescue project to specifically promote research in socially significant issues. RoboCupRescue includes real robot and simulation leagues.



RoboCup@Home focuses on real-world applications and human-machine interaction with autonomous robots. The aim is to foster the development of useful robotic applications that can assist humans in everyday life


RoboCupJunior is a robotics event for primary and secondary school students that provides consistent challenges from year to year and emphasizes sharing ideas in a friendly learning environment.
