We have received the RoboSoccer (simulation league) World Cup in Melbourne (left) and the European Cup in Amsterdam (right)!

FC Portugal is the RoboCup Simulation League team that became RoboCup 2000 European Champion in Amsterdam and RoboCup 2000 World Champion in Melbourne. FC Portugal is developed at IEETA / University of Aveiro and LIACC (NIADR) / University of Porto. This project started in February 2000.

The RoboCup Initiative!

RoboCup is an international joint project to promote (Distributed) Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Robotics, and related fields. It is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. RoboCup chose to use soccer game as a central topic of research, aiming at innovations to be applied for socially significant problems and industries. The ultimate goal of the RoboCup project is By 2050, develop a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot that can win against the human world champion team in soccer! In order for a robot team to actually play a soccer game, various technologies must be incorporated including: autonomous agents, multi-agent collaboration and communication, strategy acquisition, real-time reasoning, robotics, and sensor-fusion. RoboCup is a task for a team of multiple fast-moving robots under a dynamic environment. RoboCup also offers a software platform (soccer server) for research on the software aspects of RoboCup. One of the major application of RoboCup technologies is a search and rescue in large scale disaster. RoboCup initiated the RoboCup-Rescue project to specifically promote research in socially significant issues.
