RoboCup is an international initiative with the main goals of fostering research and education in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, as well as of promoting Science and Technology to world citizens. The idea is to provide a standard problem where a wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined, as well as being used for project-oriented education, and to organize annual events open to the general public, where different solutions to the problem are compared.
