Alan Mackworth and his group proposed and built the world’s first soccer-playing robots, which led to the development of robot soccer as the premier global platform for multi-agent robotic research through the International RoboCup Foundation, where he has been honoured as "The Founding Father". The idea was first mentioned in a paper titled On Seeing Robots, presented at VI-92, 1992 and later published in a book Computer Vision: System, Theory, and Applications, World Scientific Press, Singapore, 1993. Robot soccer as a challenge problem has great scientific significance. It has now become a standard test environment for cross-testing research ideas: a forum for evolving theories of multi-agent systems. Through regular international RoboCup tournaments many research teams of students and professors compete and cooperate in the development, testing and evolution of new theories and new algorithms.
