RoboCup is an international initiative devoted to advancing the state of the art in artificial intelligence and robotics. The aims of the project and potential research directions are numerous. The ultimate, long-range goal is to build a team of robot soccer players that can beat a human World Cup champion team. This book is the second official archival publication devoted to RoboCup. It documents the achievements presented at the Second International Workshop on RoboCup held in Paris, France, in July 1998. The book opens with an overview section, provides research papers on selected technical topics, and presents technical and strategic descriptions of the work of participating teams. Of interest far beyond the rapidly growing RoboCup community, this book is also indispensable reading for R&D professionals interested in multi-agent systems, distributed artificial intelligence, and intelligent robotics.
