In the Standard Platform League it is a long-standing tradition that (some) teams release their source code to facilitate the advancement of the league. We feel that this is would be a very good idea for the Humanoid League as well. While obviously each team’s source code has strong dependencies on the particular hardware used (e.g. processor, operating system, motor communication, camera lenses and interface, etc), it would still provide valuable insight and allow other teams to learn from successes and mistakes being made.
In the spirit of knowledge exchange, we have decided to make available the source code used in RoboCup 2011 in Istanbul. We hope this will encourage other teams to release their source code as well!
