Abstract / Description

Nature inspired optimization algorithms are known for their inherent ability to solve complex problems where multiple agents interact to perform a task at hand. This paper presents a survey of how these optimization algorithms have been applied in determining cooperative strategies for a team of soccer playing agents. The survey discusses the contributions made by researchers and makes an effort to map nature inspired optimization algorithms with the type of cooperative strategy evolved. A categorization of cooperative study is also presented specifically in the domain of RoboCup Soccer Simulation League where agents cooperate in a virtual environment to develop a strategy without any issue of physical wear and tear. This study would serve as a starting point for teams participating in RoboCup competitions to enhance their strategy utilizing ideas from nature inspired algorithms.
