Robotstadium is an on-line programming contest based on the rules of
the Nao RoboCup Standard Platform League. The Robotstadium contest is
free of charge and open to everyone. The contest is already active and
can be joined at any time. The finals will be held during the RoboCup
2009 (beginning of July). Robotstadium uses a Webots based realistic
simulation of Nao robot and soccer field. Each competitor programs a
team of Nao robots using the Java, C/C++, or Python programming
The winning team will receive 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs) and a Webots PRO
software package. Other prices will be available for the second and
third ranking competitors. Not enough? We also encourage you to donate
items (robot, voucher, software, hardware, etc.) or cash to the future
winners: it is possible to make an on-line donation on the
A round of matches is played every week day. The recent matches can be
watched on the website. Currently double.p (Italy) is Robotstadium's
champion, who dares to challenge him?
The current ranking is:
1. double.p (Italy)
2. Che (Russia)
3. Borregos_Nao (Mexico)
4. AsuraFit (Japan)
5. Cracoucass (Switzerland)
If you want to participate, you can start programming right now by
downloading Webots 6.1.2 from here:
Robotstadium 2009 uses an accurate model of the NaoV3 "RoboCup"
Edition. This simulation allows you to control the robot's motors,
cameras, FSRs, foot bumpers, inertial unit, LEDs, etc. and provides an
accurate physics simulation (mass centers, motor torques, etc.).
Even if you don't want to participate to Robotstadium, you are welcome
to use the latest Webots and the new Nao V3 model in your projects.
The demo version of Webots will let you use and modify the Nao
controllers (C/C++, Java, Python) associated with the 4 distributed
Nao worlds: nao1.wbt, nao2.wbt, nao4.wbt and robotstadium.wbt. So you
are welcome to use these worlds for training your algorithms for the
RoboCup or for any other purpose.
I hope to see you soon on Robotstadium!
