Abstract:The VUB AI-lab team is mainly interested in the two loosely linked aspects of on-board control and heterogeneity. One major effort for forstering both aspects within RoboCups small robots league is our development of a so-to-say robot construction-kit, allowing to implement a wide range of players with on-board control. For the 99 competition, the existing RoboCube controller-hardware has been further improved. In addition, some solid and precise mechanical building-blocks were developed, which can easily be mounted on differently shaped bottom-plates. On top of these engineering efforts, we report here a computational inexpensive but efficient algorithm for motion-control, including obstacle avoidance. Furthermore, we shortly address the issue of increased diffulties of coordinating so-to-say multiple teams due to the possible variations based on heterogeneity. Operational semantics based on abstract data-types and patter matching capabilities can be a way out of this problem.
