The RoboCup Soccer project developed by the RoboCup Federation is now introduced and offered to UCSD students by IEEE@UCSD. In a summary, it is a project about building a group of autonomous soccer robots and developing AI algorithms for them to perform various tactics on the soccer field.
Check out the video below to learn more about what this project is like. (Video made by a Japanese team competing in the 2017 RoboCup)

While RoboCup has many kinds of soccer-robotic competitions available, we are in particularly aiming for the RoboCup Soccer SSL (Small Size League) program. Participating students at IEEE@UCSD are encouraged to compete in a regional RoboCup Soccer SSL competition in 2020. There is also the opportunity to enter the International RoboCup Soccer SSL competition in July, 2020, if circumstances allows.
