Open Source Award
The RoboCup Small Size League Open Source Award goes to a team that has demonstrated a commitment to sharing and supporting their software and hardware designs for the benefit and advancement of the RoboCup community.
All teams that participate in RoboCup 2021 and have released a significant portion of their work under an source license. Teams will be required to submit information regarding their entry prior to a date announced by the Organizing Committee in order to be considered for the Open Source Award. Contributions to league-maintained software, such as SSL-Vision, are not eligible for this award.
A submission for the Open Source Award will include the following
- Link(s) to the open source project
- Link(s) to any related documentation for using the open source project
- A short description of the project and documentation submitted and their innovation and relevance to the RoboCup Small Size League.
Submissions will be made to the Small Size League Mailing List by <Date TBD>. The subject of the email should be RoboCup 2021 – Open Source Award Submission <Your Team Name>. Late submissions will not be considered.
During the competition, the Organizing Committee will designate a time for Open Source award presentations. All teams that meet the eligibility requirements and who submitted details prior to the deadline will prepare a presentation of their entry. The presentation should not exceed five minutes in length. A short question and answer question will immediately follow each presentation.
Each team in attendance at RoboCup 2021 will receive a ballot. Each ballot will contain a form for each submission to be evaluated independently on a numeric scale in multiple categories, each weighted equally. The scores of each submission will be averaged and the submission with the highest average score will receive the award. The categories will be quality of submission, quality of documentation/supporting materials, and innovation.
