About RoboCup Singapore Open 2012

The RoboCup Singapore Open 2012 is organized by Singapore Polytechnic and Science Centre Singapore.

RoboCup Singapore Open is an annual robotic competition 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. 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 leagues 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 ultimate goal of the RoboCup Initiative is “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.”

About RoboCupJunior

RoboCupJunior is a project-oriented educational initiative that sponsors local, regional and international robotic events for young students. It is designed to introduce RoboCup to primary and secondary school children, as well as undergraduates who do not have the resources to get involved in the senior leagues yet. The focus of the Junior league lies on education. The tournament offers to the participants the chance to take part in international exchange programs and to share the experience of meeting peers from abroad.

RoboCupJunior offers several challenges, each emphasizing both cooperative and competitive aspects. For young students, RoboCupJunior provides an exciting introduction to the field of robotics, a new way to develop technical abilities through hands-on experience with electronics, hardware and software, and a highly motivating opportunity to learn about teamwork while sharing technology with friends. In contrast to the one-child-one-computer scenario typically seen today, RoboCupJunior provides a unique opportunity for participants with a variety of interests and strengths to work together as a team to achieve a common goal.




The RoboCup Singapore Open 2012 serves as the national level selection for Singapore RoboCupJunior teams. Hence, the RoboCup Singapore Open 2012 will focus on the RoboCupJunior Challenge. 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.


The invited RoboCup Major teams will demonstrate the Major league categories. They are RoboCup Soccer, RoboCup Rescue, and RoboCup@Home.
