This Web site displays the activities of the South African RoboCup
The Committee consists of members from five institutions, and aims
to coordinate RoboCup activities in South Africa.
RoboCup encompasses a range of competitive activities, designed
to advance serious robotics and artificial intelligence research
throughout the world. It provides measurable competitive
activities that challenge research teams to advance the state of the art as
rapidly as possible. The International RoboCup Federation's stated objective
is to produce a robot soccer team that will beat the human world champion
team by 2050.
In South Africa, four tertiary institutions are actively involved in RoboCup,
with funding from South Africa's Department of Science and Technology. The
intention is to have a competition between these universities by the end of 2010.

committee members directly.
