Soccer Simulation: From 2D to 2.5D

During our 2016 talk at the "RoboCup Symposium" on the paper Progress in RoboCupRevisited:The State ofSoccer Simulation 2D (download talk slides from here), we concluded that the partial introduction of the third dimension (e.g. for the ball) might be beneficial for the durther development of RoboCup's soccer simulation 2D league. Thus, it is delightful to see that in this year's soccer simulation 2D community meeting the technical and maintenance committees of the league annunced that exactly that change is about to happen. Click here for details.
