The SocRob project was born as a challenge for multidisciplinary research on broad and generic approaches for the design of a cooperative robot society; involving Control; Robotics and Artificial Intelligence researchers. A case study on Robotic Soccer played by a team of 3 robots has started two years ago and was first tested last year during RoboCup98. This experience has clearly revealed that the robotic soccer environment is a sufficiently rich; complex and dynamic testbed to study new methodologies both on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. Therefore; the SocRob team is currently working on the SocRob project improvements and intends to compete at the World Cup of Robotic Soccer; RoboCup99; held in Stockholm; Sweden; in the middle-size league. In this paper the basic aspects of last year implementation as well as the improvements made meanwhile are briefly recalled and presented. Naturally; a special emphasis is given here to the novel solutions proposed for this year implementation; the results obtained and the expected future developments.
