AbstractThis paper describes the hardware and software of the robotic soccer
team built at the Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin which took part in the 1999 RoboCup
Championship in Stockholm, Sweden. Our team, the FUFighters, consists of five
robots of less than 18 cm horizontal cross-section. Four of the robots have the
same mechanical design, while the goalie is slightly different. All the hardware
was designed and assembled at the FU Berlin. The paper describes the hierarchical
control architecture used to generate the behavior of individual agents and the
whole team. Our reactive approach is based on the dual dynamics framework proposed
by J├Ąger, but extended with a third module of sensor readings. Fast changing
sensors are aggregated in time to form slowly changing percepts in a temporal
resolution hierarchy. We describe the main blocks of the software and their interactions.
