RoboCup is a research-oriented initiative that pioneered the field of multirobot research since 1996. Currently, RoboCup opened a new horizon for multirobot research by focusing on teams of robots facing other teams of robots to accomplish specific goals. This challenging objective offers a broad and rich set of research and development questions; to wit, the construction of mechanically sound and robust robots, real-time effective perception algorithms, and dynamic behavior-based approaches to support teamwork.  RoboCup 2001 (PDF Download Available from: researchgate.net )
