The committee has decided to follow Rules 2016 in the competitions. You can find the rules of small size league in below link:
Following materials are needed for qualification:
1- A Team Description Paper which:
2- A qualification
should contain a brief description of the team, with citations to previous TDPs and the team's website where appropriate.
should focus on innovations that the team has produced with respect to their previous TDPs. These innovations should be described in detail, to facilitate reproducibility for other teams, where possible.
should have a clear structure and it should be written in clear English.
video that must be at least 1 minute of unedited continuous footage
. The qualification video can be either of the following types, although preference will be given to item 1 (then 2 and last 3):
A video of your robots participating in a RoboCup standard game (i.e. a game at RoboCup or one of the local regional competitions). The video should show obstacle avoidance, shooting and passing skill. The game should be based on contemporary rules (2011 and afterwards).
A video of your robots (there must be at least two moving robots) engaging in two or more of the following activities:
One or more robots competing against an active robot goalkeeper.
Two or more robot field players actively going to the ball and playing against one another.
At least two robots playing cooperatively against 5 static or moving obstacles.
A video showing one or more robots partially demonstrating capabilities listed in item 2.
The team video is used by the OC to determine the readiness of a team to compete effectively and is part of the criteria in ranking teams in the qualification process. Teams are advised to submit a video that best demonstrates the readiness of the team to compete in an international competition.
All robots will be checked before the competitions and if they fail to qualify they are not allowed to participate. Furthermore each team should be ready to explain the design of its robots.
1. New Penalty Shoot-Out
As this year a new rule has been suggested for penalty shoot-puts and is under study to be applied in the upcoming competitions we proposed the following challenge.
Here is the description for new rule:
During the penalty shoot-out, a maximum of 1 robot per team is on the field in order to avoid interference. Both teams alternately attempt to score a goal until each
team has performed 5 attempts. If a decision is reached for one team, the attempts are stopped by the referee. For each attempt, the defending goalie starts in a position in which it is touching the goal line.
The ball is located 6 meters away from the defending goal line, measured perpendicularly from the center of the goal. The attacking robot has 10 seconds to score on the opponent's goal. After 10 seconds or when the ball leaves the field, the attempt is marked as a no-goal. In the event of a rule infraction as described by the rules of Law 12, the attempt is repeated.
- In the case of a repeated infraction of the defending team, a goal is awarded to the attacking team.
- In the case of a repeated infraction of the attacking team, the attempt is marked as a no-goal.
- Robots may be exchanged between the kicks following the interchange rules of Law 3.
- As switching sides would cost too much time and would force the teams to touch their systems both goals are used.
In our challenge each participant teams will compete with all other participants in the aforementioned format. The teams will be ranked by the number of scores plus number of saves.
2. Chip Kick Interception
This year the international committee of Small-size league presented a new technical challenge. In this challenge the teams are encouraged to improve their estimations about chipped ball locations plus ability to play on the air which is a nice type of play in real soccer.
