The Standard Platform League (SPL) provides an environment that is essentially static; with the exception of other robots and the audience, the area in which a robot is expected to localise itself is quite favourable. However, a large number of the predefined landmarks in the given world model can be perceived as ambiguous in many scenarios, with the prime example being field line markings. In this paper a technique is presented that implicitly disambiguates these detected field line objects in order to use them for localization purposes.
