Leagues

The 2008 Latin American Robotics Competition will have the leagues listed below. The rules and details of the leagues are specified in each case. For doubts related to the leagues, use the Orkut community. If your doubt persists, send a message to the chair of the league.

IEEE Standard Education Kits

Chair:
Alexandre da Silva Simões (UNESP)
Attendance:
Undergraduate students
Rules:
Rules 2008 - FAQ
The IEEE Standard Education Kits is the former IEEE LEGO. The objective of this league is to present a stimulant challenge to the undergraduate students which need to build two autonomous robots using education kits approved for the contest only. The two robots must act in a cooperative way to accomplish the task which is altered in each year. In 2008 the robots of the IEEE SEK continues the spacial saga started in 2005.

IEEE Open

Chair:
Wanderson de Oliveira Assis (CEUN-IMT)
Attendance:
Graduate and undergraduate students
Rules:
Rules 2008 - Former years rules.
The IEEE Open has the objective of presenting a high level challenge to the students. In this league any equipment can be used to assembly a autonomous robot which ought to accomplish a task which is changed each year. The tasks of the IEEE Open try to reproduce the challenges of the real robotics in a minor scale. The challenge of 2008 will be to assembly a bomb disarmer robot.

IEEE Very-Small Soccer

Chair:
Marcelo Nicoletti Franchin (UNESP-Bauru)
Attendance:
Graduate and undergraduate students
Rules:
Rules 2008 - Former years rules
In the IEEE Very-small Soccer two teams of 3 robots of up to 7,5x7,5x7,5cm play a soccer game. The robots are remotely controlled by a computer, but without human intervention. The computer processes the image of a video camera placed above the field and commands the robots.

RoboCup Small Soccer (F-180)

Chair:
Silvia Silva da Costa Botelho (FURG)
Attendance:
Graduate and undergraduate students, professors and researchers.
Rules:
Rules 2008. The rules are the same of the RoboCup 2008 world championship in Suzhou, China.
More information:
See the league's Wiki page
In the RoboCup Small Soccer, also know as RoboCup F-180 two teams of 5 robots up to 150mm high and with up to 180mm in diameter plays a soccer game. The robots may be controlled remotely by a computer or may use on-board processing. Many robots in this league have a kick system.

RoboCup Soccer Simulation Mixed Reality

Chair:
Eder Mateus Gonçalves (FURG)
Attendance:
Graduate and undergraduate students, professors and researchers.
Rules:
Rules 2008.
More information:
See the league's Wiki page
The RoboCup Soccer Simulation Mixed Reality combines Citizen real micro-robots and simulation. The ball and the field of play are simulated and projected in a plasma TV which is the field for the micro-robots. Each micro-robot is commanded by an autonomous program, which receives limited information about the situation of the game.

RoboCup Soccer Simulation 2D

Chair:
Luiz Antonio Celiberto Junior (ITA)
Attendance:
Graduate and undergraduate students, professors and researchers.
Rules:
Rules 2008. The rules are based on the ones of the RoboCup 2008 world championship in Suzhou, China.
More information:
See the league's Wiki page
In this simulated league two teams of 11 intelligent autonomous agents plays a soccer game in two dimensions. Each agent which represents one player receives limited information about the game situation and ought to decide his action thinking in the team as a whole.

Remote Participation

It is possible only for non-Latin American teams to participate remotely. Remote participation is for free, it is not necessary to pay any registration fees. If a remote team wins one of the three best postitions on the final ranking it will receive a certificate that can be sent by regular mail service. Please follow the instructions for remote teams registration. After completed the registration procedures, each remote team should send its binary code to 2dlarc08@gmail.com up to October 22nd at midnight (GMT -3). Competiton machines will have 32-bit Ubuntu Linux version 8.04 and GCC version 4.1.3 standard libraries installed. Be sure your binary code is compatible with these software. Any non-standard library needed by your code should be sent also. If there is any special instruction for installation of these libraries it should be sent too. All binaries should have a start.sh script starting all the players and coach. The script should receive one parameter indicating the server hostname or IP address. Teams with non-runnable binary codes will be disqualified. On October 25th, the chair will test all remote teams'codes and send a confirmation report to each team. Failed codes can be fixed and sent again up to October 26th at 11:00 a.m. (GMT -3). After this time, all non-runnable codes will be automatically disqualified.

RoboCup Rescue Simulation Virtual Robots

Chair:
Walter Guerra (UFCG)
Attendance:
Graduate and undergraduate students, professors and researchers.
Rules:
Rules 2008. The rules are the same of the RoboCup 2008 world championship in Suzhou, China.
More information:
See the league's Wiki page
Real disaster scenarios and real robots were modeled and integrated in an simulation environment. In this environment one team of robots must be programmed to search the scenario for survivors. Each robot receives exactly the same information that a real robot in the same situation should receive.

Remote Participation

It is possible only for non-Latin American teams to participate remotely. Remote participation is for free, it is not necessary to pay any registration fees. If a remote team wins one of the three best postitions on the final ranking it will receive a certificate that can be sent by regular mail service. Please follow the instructions for remote teams registration. After completed the registration procedures, each remote team should send its binary code to vrlarc08@gmail.com up to October 22nd at midnight (GMT -3). Competiton machines will have 32-bit Windows XP SP2 and most recent version of USARSim. Be sure your binary code is compatible with these software. Teams with non-runnable binary codes will be disqualified. On October 25th, the chair will test all remote teams'codes and send a confirmation report to each team. Failed codes can be fixed and sent again up to October 26th at 11:00 a.m. (GMT -3). After this time, all non-runnable codes will be automatically disqualified.
