Abstract: From chess to autonomous driving, we have seen an increasing amount of applications where robots have to deal with tasks that are more and more challenging. One thing is clear: robots are moving from very controlled and previously-known environments to more unstructured ones. If precisely manipulating chess pieces poses its challenges, imagine how difficult it is to deal with a chaotic, rolling soccer ball while coordinating with the team-mates to beat an opponent team with exactly the same goals. In this interactive session, we will discuss the challenges, technologies and methods used in the development of CAMBADA - a top team currently participating in the major international robotic soccer competition.
