In RoboCup Humanoid KidSize compete teams of four humanoid robots in football matches. The match takes place on a 6m x 9m court, and two ten-minute times are played in each match. Robots must be able to play football autonomously, that is, no remote control is allowed. To achieve this, the robots must be equipped with a sensory system that allows them to perceive the state of the world around them, and the information of this sensory system must be connected to a computer on board the robot in which artificial intelligence algorithms are programmed. for the robot to make its own decisions. This competition is part of the Abierto Mexicano de RoboCup.
RoboCup is an international initiative whose vision is to have by the year 2050 a team of humanoid robots capable of defeating the FIFA world champion team in a football match.
To participate in RoboCup Humanoid KidSize, you can register teams of up to 12 people with the right to place at the table. Due to the level of difficulty of this competition, research groups are invited, including undergraduate, postgraduate, professors and researchers. There are no restrictions on who can participate.
Teachers who accompany the team and who wish to have a diploma that recognizes their participation in the event, but do not require them to be assigned to the team work table, may register as mentors. The registration cost of the mentors is the same as that of the contestants.
The teams registered in this category are candidates to receive an enrollment scholarship to participate in Jalisco Talent Land, to be held from 02 to 06 April 2018 at Expo Guadalajara. You can consult more information at http://2018.talent-land.mx
The RoboCup Humanoid KidSize competition is based on the official rules published for the RoboCup World Cup, which can be found at the following link: https://www.robocuphumanoid.org/materials/rules/
Take into account that at this moment the international committee is in the process of reviewing the rules, so we recommend you check periodically to see if there are any updates.
Also, you should keep in mind that the RoboCup Humanoid KidSize and RoboCup SPL categories in the TMR2018 will share a single court. The court is designed to resemble the specifications of RoboCup SPL, both in the design of the white lines and in the length of the artificial grass (10mm instead of 30mm).
