Logistics League

Logistics League sponsored by Festo (LLSF) is an industrial motivated RoboCup trait. Up to three mobile robots per team compete against the clock over the best in class solution. Challenging the team for excellence in logistics, the robots are required to establish and optimise a flow of material throughout a 12 by 6 meters production area. Two teams have to compete in the same production hall for a best solution.

LLSF is based on the mobile robotics platform Robotino® which delivers out of the box deploy ability as a mechatronic system. The challenge includes multi agent autonomy as well as precise motion control, computer vision, efficient scheduling, and manipulation.

In 2013 LLSF introduces a Referee Box system which will later on work as control server, enabling the flow of information which is of paramount importance on the way to match the complexity level of industrial Automated Guided Vehicles.

Rules

The new rulebook version 2014 will consider two essential new concepts for the LLSF league. At first, it will be used only one competition field. Two teams have to share this field and have to find a best solution in a direct competition. The second change affects the use of the RFID-units. Except of the delivery gates, they will be replaced by small real machines. A first version of the rulebook 2014 will be hopefully ready in late December 2013.
