In the Humanoid League, autonomous robots with a human-like body plan and human-like senses play soccer against each other. In addition to soccer games, technical challenges will take place. The robots are divided into three size classes: KidSize (40-90cm height), TeenSize (80-140cm height), and AdultSize (130-180cm height). Dynamic walking, running, and kicking the ball while maintaining balance, visual perception of the ball, other players, and the field as well as self-localization, and team play are among many research issues investigated in the Humanoid League.
As for qualification,teams need to provide the following :
1- Team Description Paper in English (according to LNCS format) at no more than 8 pages. The paper should include:
-team members and affiliation
-the team’s previous experience
-Technical specification of the robots
-hardware, software, and mechanical properties including:
-Object recognition techniques,
-Any improvements,if any, compared to the performance of robots in the previous competitions (if you have attended the competitions)
-if parts of the design have been taken from other teams, it should be mentioned and the changes made to it should be explained.
-To make things easier,please proceed as follows: if your team name is, for example Shahin, and you take part in the humanoid teen size competitions of 2018, please name your tdp as shahinTeen-rcap2018TDP.
-Please send your TDP to email@example.com
2- A web site
3- A 5-minute video in mp4 format displaying the abilities of the robots such as:
-kicking and shooting the ball toward the goal,
-standing after falling (kid and teen sizes)
-cooperation between at least two robots
The videos can be uploaded in Aparat (www.aparat.com) or any other appropriate site.
4: A pdf file, describing robot names, and the dimensions of the robot according to the rules. Use this template to write these information.
Except the video file, please send your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org
All robots are checked before the competitions and if they fail to qualify they can not participate.
Robots such as Nao are not allowed to participate in this league. Depending on the situation, TC may consider some advantages for the teams which have made more efforts to prepare their own robots. All such conditions are decided by TC.
Every team in every class of the humanoid league should have a separate registration. If an institute has more than one team, they should be able to compete in more than one class simultaneously.
At least one person from every team should be completely aware of the playing rules, and should act as a referee during the competitions. Every team should bring its own whistle.
A short workshop may run alongside the league, so each team should be ready to explain about the design of its robots.
If the number of teams in each category is less than or equal to 4, one rank is given. If the number of teams is less than or equal to 7, two ranks are given, and if there are more than 7 teams, three ranks are given.
