RoboCup: Dynamic Diamond Positioning


C. Mauquoi, Y. Xu

Semester Thesis, FS15 (10421/7)

Artificial Intelligence is a field of interest that is advancing at a very high pace. Autonomous mobile robots are currently being developed in many different areas, as decentralized cooperative behavior operat- ing and helping humans in complicated and dynamic environments are highly useful. The Standard Platform League of the RoboCup has as its core goal to develop such systems that can operate autonomously and reliably in a highly dynamic field, with little or no supervision.
This project was in scope the robotic football team Z-Knipsers of ETHZ. On every team there are 5 robots. Most teams choose to have one robot be the keeper, leaving 4 robots as field players. The positioning of these robots is key for a competitive game, as a weak positioning can be easily exploited by the opponents. The goal of this project was to develop a dynamic positioning module, in which the robots change their position depending on different inputs occurring on the field. Next, we will present the positioning strategy that we implemented with the module, where the players form a dynamic dia- mond, in order to have both a good offence and also a reliable defense.
