Azzurra Robot Team (ART) is the result of a joint effort of six Italian research groups from Univ. of Genova; Politecnico Milano; Univ. of Padova; Univ. of Palermo; Univ. of Parma; Univ. Roma "La Sapienza"; and Consorzio Padova Ricerche which has provided resources and a set up of the soccer field in its Center in Padova. We have developed the team within the framework of the RoboCup Italia Project; with the aim of education and training of students in the subjects related to the design of autonomous mobile robots; of developing new research ideas and foster the development of larger projects in this field in Italy.
