Robot Soccer
« on: June 20, 2006, 11:34:15 AM »
Hey everyone,

    I just found this really interesting article on Technology Review about the Robo World Cup 2006, and the fact that scientists have developed robots to not only play in the games, but actually act as commentators as well. This is the first year that robots have done this, and, while still only making basic comments, they actually come up with what they say by themselves, without someone telling them to say it at a certain time. I'm sure the article can explain it better! Check it out here:

The Robocup is pretty interesting. They take their simulation to the extreme. For example to mimic a loud croud; "noise" is introduced into the arena to make communication dificult beetween robots.
And as usual CMU won
