RoboCup 2012 RoboCup  

The RoboCup Federation and the Mexican Robotics Federation are pleased to invite you to RoboCup 2012 to be held in Mexico City from Monday 18th through Sunday 24th June 2012.

RoboCup objective:
It is our intentions to use RoboCup as a vehicle to promote robotics and AI research, by offering publicly appealing, but formidable challenge. One of the effective ways to promote engineering research, apart from specific application developments, is to set a significant long term goal. When the accomplishment of such a goal has significant social impact, it is called the grand challenge project. Building a robot to play soccer game itself do not generate significant social and economic impact, but the accomplishment will certainly considered as a major achievement of the field. We call this kind of project as a landmark project. RoboCup is a landmark project as well as a standard problem.

The Dream
We proposed that the ultimate goal of the RoboCup Initiative to be stated as follows:
By mid-21st century, a team of fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer players shall win the soccer game, comply with the official rule of the FIFA, against the winner of the most recent World Cup.

We propose that this goal to be the one of the grand challenges shared by robotics and AI community for next 50 years.
