- RoboCup Soccer-Small Size: which is one of the oldest RoboCup Soccer leagues. The teams should design their soccer players with pre-defined weight and size. They may process the information come from 4 located cameras and use off-field computers to control the robots (Omni Directional Wheels may use in this kind).
