Rules and Regulations

The rule book of the RCLL contains the rules and regulations teams participating in the competitions have to follow. They are updated every year to reflect the progress and development of the league. Typically we aim to have a 2-year cycle of the rulebook, with larger changes introduced in one year and only smaller changes to stabilize and adjust in the following year.

2012  we had our first Logistics League competition.

2013  we introduced the Referee Box (refbox) changing the competition at its core by introducing a flow of
           information. This allowed for more dynamic games and the automatic tracking of scores, and to relax
           the hitherto existing regulations regarding additional computing power.

2014  we merged the formerly separate playing fields into a single one, on which both teams compete at the same time,
           introducing the need for self-localization, collision avoidance, and increased spatial coordination complexity. Additionally, the production
           schedules became more dynamic in that orders were posted dynamically.

2015  we introduced actual physical processing machines based on the Modular Production System (MPS) requiring more complex
           machine handling.
To accommodate the new machine working height, the Robotino 3 will be the new major platform in the league
           (Robotino 2 are still allowed).
Festo provides a special offer for RoboCup participants for the new robot platform.
           Additionally, the production schedule has again become more flexible and dynamic, by introducing color-coded rings of
           which a varying number can be requested to be mounted in a specific order for a certain product. This increased the number of products
           from 3 to about 240.

2016  After three years of constant and tremendous changes, 2016 was a year to consolidate our league.

2017  we changed the field size and zone layout. Production became the main focus by making the exploration phase shorter and less
           important.The workpieces were marked with barcodes, to track specific products by processing stations and award points for production
           steps during the game.

2018  we are working towards the introduction of a new storage station. This is a long-term effort. This year, the station will provide
           pre-assembled products that can be bought for delivery.The new rulebook will have only small changes and will be available
           end of February 2018.
