Robots are increasingly not only being used in industrial environments, but are also finding their way into modern everyday life. Here, robots have to make independent decisions in dynamic environments in order to interact with their environment.

Competitions such as the RoboCup, in which the Institute for Robot Research participates in the Standard Platform League for bipedal robots and has won great successes and numerous tournaments there as well as in the league of four-legged robots, are considered a showcase of autonomous robotics.

Robot soccer does not serve as an end in itself. The algorithms and methods developed in the process can be applied to current problems in autonomous robotics.
