Robot Soccer Demonstration
The Brown Robocup Club will be hosting a robot soccer demonstration Tuesday May 9th between 1-4pm in the CIT Lobby. Robocup (http://www.robocup.org/) is a world-wide effort to create robots that can win in soccer against the human World Cup Champion. Toward this goal, we will exhibit Sony Aibo robot dogs facing-off in 4-on-4 soccer matches. These robots play soccer autonomously based on computer programs written by our team of Brown undergraduate and graduate students. Additionally, a remote control interface will be available for visitors to control a robot player during the matches. This interface provides a first person sense of playing robot soccer.
Members of our team will be available to answer any questions how those interested can get involved and, more generally, about robotics, Robocup, and artificial intelligence.
