RoboCup is an international joint project to promote AI, robotics, and related field. It is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. RoboCup chose to use soccer game as a central topic of research, aiming at innovations to be applied for socially significant problems and industries.

Robocup 2006 was in Bremen (Germany) from 14 to 18 June. The German teams were very impressive and they won 11 gold medals (there were 33 gold medals in total). And what about the italian teams? Uhm...only one team did a good job: the RoboCare team. It ranks 3rd in the RoboCup@Home league.

The other italian teams partecipating to Robocup2006 were: Milan Robocup Team (Middle-size league), SPQR-Legged (Four-Legged league), Artisti (Humanoid League), SPQR (RoboCup Rescue, Simulation League), Alcor (RoboCup Rescue, Robot League), Aktarus (RoboCup Junior), Leonardo (RoboCup Junior), Nemesis (RoboCup Junior), Pegasus (RoboCup Junior), Von Neumann robotic team 1 (RoboCup Junior), Von Neumann robotic team 2 (RoboCup Junior).
