Approaching a formal soccer theory from behaviour specifications in robotic soccer* [chapter]

F. Dylla, A. Ferrein, G. Lakemeyer, J. Murray, O. Obst, T. Röfer, S. Schiffer, F. Stolzenburg, U. Visser, Th. Wagner
2008 Computers in Sport  
The advantage is clear: theory abstracts from hardware and from specifi c situations in different leagues.  ...  It goes beyond the behaviour specifi cation of soccer playing robots. For sports science a unifi ed formal soccer theory might help to better understand and to formulate basic concepts in soccer.  ...  Beyond these problems it comes to the question how the processing from sensor inputs to actuator output is designed. State of the art for soccer robots are so-called reactive systems.  ...

A Cross-Domain Survey of Metrics for Modelling and Evaluating Collisions

Jeremy A. Marvel, Roger Bostelman
2014 International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems  
Though not exhaustive, this survey evaluates the state-of-the-art of collision metrics, and assesses which are likely to aid in the establishment and support of autonomous system collision modelling.  ...  The survey includes metrics for 1) robot arms; 2) mobile robot platforms; 3) nonholonomic physical systems such as ground vehicles, aircraft, and naval vessels, and; 4) virtual and mathematical models.  ...  As the distance from the goal state increases, so too does the attractive pull toward it.  ...
