Kid Size Robot
In His Name, the Most High
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. From this year, the robots are divided into two size classes: KidSize (40-100cm height), and AdultSize (100-200cm height). Dynamic walking, running, and kicking the ball while maintaining balance, visual perception of the ball, other players, and the field, self-localization, and team play are among the many research issues investigated in the Humanoid League
It is tried to use 2020 rules of the Robocup Humanoid league (as much as possible).
The latest draft can be downloaded from:
For qualification it is needed to have the following materials
Team Description Paper (according to LNCS format) at most 8 pages. The paper should include:
-team members and affiliation
-previous experience of the team
-scientific characteristics of the robots
-hardware and software and mechanical properties including:
-Object recognition techniques,
-improvements with respect to the last year attendance (if you have attended the competitions)
if parts of the design have been borrowed from other teams, it should be mentioned and the changes made to it should be explained.
To make things easier, if you your team name is for example shahin, and you attend in the humanoid adult size competitions of 2020, please name your tdp as shahinAdult2020TDP.
A web site
A video about 5 minutes in mp4 format displaying the abilities of the robots such as:
-kicking and shooting the ball toward the goal,
-standing after falling (kid size)
-cooperation between at least two robots
A pdf file, describing robot names, and the dimensions of the robot according to the rules. Use this template to write these information.
The videos can be uploaded in Aparat (www.aparat.com). or any other suitable site.
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 the are not allowed to participate.
Commercial 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 put more efforts to prepare their own robots. All such conditions are up to the decision of 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 along side 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.
