Abstract

Over the past few years, soccer-playing humanoid robots advanced significantly. Elementary skills, such as bipedal walking, visual perception, and collision avoidance have matured enough to allow for dynamic and exciting games. In this paper, the three winning Humanoid League teams from the KidSize, TeenSize, and AdultSize class present their soccer systems. The KidSize winner team DARwIn used the recently introduced DARwIn-OP robot. The TeenSize winner NimbRo used their self-constructed robots Dynaped and Bodo. The AdultSize Louis Vuitton Best Humanoid Award winner CHARLI detail the technology behind the outstanding performance of its robot CHARLI-2.
