Project Details


The Robot Soccer World Cup (known as the RoboCup) Games and Conferences are a series of competitions and events designed to promote the full integration of AI and robotics research. Robotic soccer provides a good test-bed for evaluation of various research, e.g. artificial intelligence, robotics, image processing, system engineering and multi-agent systems. In the Middle Size League (MSL) teams of fully autonomous robots with a size of up to 50cm x 50cm x 80 cm play soccer against each other. The MSL provides a serious challenge for many research disciplines including multi-robot cooperative teams, autonomous navigation, sensor fusion, vision-based perception, automatic reasoning, and mechanical design, to name only a few. All these topics have to be tackled in order to solve the RoboCup challenge. Therefore, RoboCup needs truly interdisciplinary research. Furthermore, approaches developed in the MSL will find their way to applications in other domains like service robots. As mentioned above research in the field of autonomous mobile robots is a very interdisciplinary and wide area. Therefore, hardly any group is able to achieve high quality research in all topics. Our group concentrates its work on flexible, symbol-based and robust approaches for the control of autonomous mobile robots in a wide area of domains and for various tasks. We subsume this under the name "Robust Intelligent Control for Autonomous Systems". The main research topics of our group are: robust abstarct control for mobile robots, model-based diagnosis for autonomous systems and sensor-based navigation.
