International Summer School on Humanoid
Soccer Robots 2013
July 22nd – July 26th, 2013
University of Bonn, Germany
The development of humanoid robots able to play soccer is a
fundamental challenge problem for robotics and AI. Since the start of
the humanoid league in 2002, there have been lots of improvements in
humanoid soccer robots hardware and software. This is partially due to
the introduction of standard platforms (Nao, DARwIn-OP, NimbRo-OP) and
competitions for complex simulated robots (3D Simulation).
objective of the school is to give students deep insights into the
currently leading approaches to bipedal locomotion, dynamic motion
generation, environment perception, tactics, and team play. Lectures by
leading experts will provide the necessary theoretical background for
hands-on exercises with humanoid soccer robots.
The program is based on three pillars:
Ranging from biomechanics, over compliant actuation, control of
balance during walking and dynamic motion, robot state estimation,
perception of the game situation, behavior control architectures,
motion planning, and multi-agent systems.
studies: Successful humanoid soccer systems like the
Platform League team B-Human and the Humanoid League team NimbRo
TeenSize will be presented.
exercises: A soccer field and real humanoid soccer robots
(NimbRo-OP, Darwin-OP, Nao) will be provided for hands-on experience.
Participants are encouraged to also bring their own robots.
