2D Simulation League (Robocup)
In the 2D Simulation League, two teams of 11 simulated autonomous software programs (called agents) play soccer in a two-dimensional virtual soccer stadium represented by a central server, called SoccerServer. This server knows everything about the game, i.e. the current position of all players and the ball, the physics and so on.
Each player receives relative and noisy input of his virtual sensors (visual, acoustic and physical) and is able to perform some basic commands (like dashing, turning or kicking) in order to influence its environment.
