RoboCup is an annual international robotics competition proposed in 1995[1] and founded in 1997. The aim is to promote robotics and AI research, by offering a publicly appealing, but formidable challenge. The name RoboCup is a contraction of the competition's full name, "Robot Soccer World Cup", but there are many other stages of the competition such as "RoboCupRescue", "RoboCup@Home" and "RoboCupJunior". In 2014 the world's competition was held in Brazil. RoboCup 2015 will be held in Hefei in July, 2015.

The official goal of the project:

"By the middle of the 21st century, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall win a soccer game, complying with the official rules of FIFA, against the winner of the most recent World Cup.[2]"

RoboCup leagues[edit]

The contest currently has five major competition domains, each with a number of leagues and subleagues:

Each team is fully autonomous in all RoboCup leagues. Once the game starts, the only input from any human is from the referee.[7]
