About us:
NEXUS is the RoboCup Simulation team from the Software Simulation and Modeling Laboratory, Computer Engineering Department, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran. Established in 2002, NEXUS firstly participated in RoboCup contest in 2003 Padova, Italy in Soccer-2D league. Afterwards, NEXUS could achieve many high scores and awards in international and national robotic competitions. Nexus members have also made some constructive contribution to the start of high school students RoboCup teams including source code release, training students with Linux programming and algorithm design, and organizing some domestic contests to select some students team for the RoboCup leagues.
What is RoboCup:
RoboCup is an international joint project to promote AI, robotics, and related field. It is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined. RoboCup chose to use soccer game as a central topic of research, aiming at innovations to be applied for socially significant problems and industries. The ultimate goal of the RoboCup project is by 2050, develop a team of fully autonomous humanoid robots that can win against the human world champion team in soccer. In order for a robot team to actually perform a soccer game, various technologies must be incorporated including: design principles of autonomous agents, multi-agent collaboration, strategy acquisition, real-time reasoning, robotics, and sensor-fusion. RoboCup is a task for a team of multiple fast-moving robots under a dynamic environment. RoboCup also offers a software platform for research on the software aspects of RoboCup.
About Simulation:
The RoboCup simulation is a research and educational tool for multi-agent systems and artificial intelligence. Soccer simulation  enables for two teams of 11 simulated autonomous robotic players to play soccer (football).
