Abstract

Robot soccer explores such a research topic that multiple agents work together in a Real-time, Cooperative and Adversarial (RCA) environment to achieve specific objectives. It requires that each agent can not only deal with situations individually, but also present cooperation with its teammates. In this paper, we describe a robot architecture, which addresses ”scaling cooperation” among robots, and meanwhile allows each robot to make decisions independently in real-time case. The architecture is based on “ideal cooperation” principle and implemented for Small Robot League in RoboCup. Experimental results prove its effectiveness and reveal several primary characteristics of behaviors in robot soccer.
