The Soccer Server system provides a rich and challenging multiagent, real-time domain. Agents must accurately perceive and act despite a quickly changing, largely hidden, noisy world. They must also act at several levels, ranging from individual skills to full-team collaborative and adversarial behaviors. This article presents the CMUnited-97 approaches to the above challenges which helped the team to the semi-finals of the 29-team RoboCup-97 tournament.
