  (AI) and robotics research by providing a
  standard problem where a wide range of
  technologies can be integrated and
• The ultimate goal of RoboCup is that by
  the middle of the 21st century, a team of
  fully autonomous humanoid robot soccer
  players shall play (and win!) a soccer
  game against the (human) world
