A Survey about Faults of Robots Used in RoboCup [chapter]

Gerald Steinbauer
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present results of a survey on faults of autonomous robots we conducted in the context of RoboCup. The major contribution of this paper is twofold.  ...  In order to be able to do this efficiently one has to have information on the nature of these faults. Very few studies on this topic have been conducted so far.  ...  We like to heartily thank all teams from the RoboCup Middle Size, Robot Rescue and RoboCup@Home leagues who actively took part of this survey.  ...
