RoboCup Soccer Humanoid League / Standard Platform League (SPL)

ROBOCUP HUMANOID LEAGUE
In the Humanoid League, autonomous robots with a human-like body plan and human-like senses play soccer against each other. The robots are divided into three size classes: KidSize (40-90cm height), TeenSize (80-140cm height) and AdultSize (130-180 cm height). In the KidSize soccer competition teams of four, highly dynamic autonomous robots compete with each other. Dynamic walking, running, and kicking the ball while maintaining balance, visual perception of the ball, other players, and the field, self-localization, and team play are among the many research issues investigated in the Humanoid League.

STANDARD PLATFORM LEAGUE (SPL)
The RoboCup Standard Platform League is a RoboCup robot soccer league, in which all teams compete with identical robots. The robots operate fully autonomously, i.e. there is no external control, neither by humans nor by computers. The current standard platform used is the humanoid NAO by Aldebaran Robotics.

 REGISTRATION, CLARIFICATIONS AND RULES
The team registrations for the Humanoid League and for the Standard Platform League (SPL) will be open SEPARATELY.
The main idea is to have TWO different leagues, as in RoboCup: Humanoid League and SPL.
However, if we have less than THREE teams pre-registered in the leagues Humanoid KidSize and Standard Platform (SPL), ONE unique category will be made, combining the teams from these both categories. This is possible because NAO’s height is similar to the height adopted by the robots in the Humanoid KidSize category, which prevent the robots from being damaged. Exceptions will be handled by the organizing committee.
Even if we have only one category composed by SPL and Humanoid KidSize, the awards will be separated by the classification of each team within its category. It means, for example, first, second, third places for humanoids and first, second and third places for NAOs.
Thus, due to the possibility of having one unique league, the field will be unified and adapted. Even if we achieve two competitions (one for Humanoid and another one for SPL) the field will be only one, according to the specifications presented in the rules.
