The team B-Human announces the availability of our 2021 code release at
It is the most advanced B-Human code ever! Many thousands of lines of open source code together with a detailed documentation. The software released is a cleaned-up version of the system we used in the 2021 competitions. In contrast to previous years, the documentation is from now on split into two parts: A PDF that briefly describes the approaches that have been implemented since 2019 is located in the GitHub repository. All technical details, such as the installation guide and descriptions of our software architecture and tools, are now in a separate wiki that you can find at https://wiki.b-human.de/coderelease2021/.
The improvements that have been made in the previous two years include (but are not limited to):
- A fully lighting independent vision system, including
- a CNN-based field border detection
- A procedure for autonomous camera calibration
- A new motion infrastructure
- Higher walking stability, based on
- improved support foot switching,
- in-walk kicks that are capable to adjust to the ball position, and
- the detection of walking on another robot’s foot and acting accordingly.
Our software is released with its own 3-D simulator. Microsoft Windows 64 bit, Linux 64 bit, and macOS (on Apple Silicon as well as on Intel processors) are fully supported.
Please note that the new code is released within the same repository that we used for our previous releases. The old releases are marked with tags in that repository. Furthermore, please also note that our license has changed for the first time in a long while.
We strongly believe in sharing our developments and look forward to the code releases of others.
Have fun :-)

there is a preliminary GameController release for RoboCup 2022 at
(including release notes and a compiled zip archive below Assets).
To those teams participating in RoboCup 2022: Could you please check
your team name (as you wish it to be displayed by the
GameController/TCM), home/away jersey colors
(GameController/config/spl/teams.cfg in the zip archive or
resources/config/spl/teams.cfg in the repository) and team logo (file
named as your team number in the same directory) and send any change
request until *June 1*? I am aware that some changes for the 7v7
competition may be necessary if teams use the default jerseys and that
remote teams can not use their own jerseys, so if you have special
requests here you can contact me as well.
If you happen to find easter eggs, bugs or other problems, please report
them either directly on GitHub, on Discord, or as an email to me,
whatever fits you best.
Hi RoboCup TC,
Thank you for writing to us
At this stage, we are unable to participate in-person due to RMIT travel rules. I have been waiting on RMIT travel rules update, but can’t guarantee that by the time of the competition.
At this stage, we would try to participate remotely in ta couple of the technical challenges, if possible.

Dear Team RedBackBots, Dear Timothy,
I am writing you due to your application to RoboCup SPL 2022. In your application you expressed that you are tentative about your commitment to participate in RoboCup SPL 2022.
The TC would like if there are any updates available regarding your intent to participate. While we understand that commitments are still hard to make due to the global situation, we would like to know which of the following options is the most likely for you at the moment.
a) You will participate in RoboCup SPL 2022 in person.
b) You will not participate in person, but have interest in remotely participation in technical challenges if possible.
c) You will not participate in RoboCup SPL 2022.
You answer is helpful for planning RoboCup SPL 2022. Therefore, we ask you to please respond until Friday this week.
