Since 2014, we have made three releases of our full software stack for the RoboCup Logistics League (RCLL) based on the Open Source Fawkes Robot Software Framework. They include all software components of the team Carologistics which won RoboCup 2014, 2015, and 2016. The software is based on experience from participating in a number of leagues with the AllemaniACs RoboCup@Home team being another active contributor. We think that these releases have made the RCLL more accessible to new teams and helped established ones to improve their performance. The team is proud to have been selected for the third place of the 1st International Harting Open Source Award in 2016. In this paper, we give an overview of the framework and its development.
The Carologistics team was awarded with the 3rd prize of the First International Harting Open Source Award handed out at RoboCup 2015. The jury in particular noted the possible impact of a full release including all components, even the high-level modeling of the domain often considered to be a competitive advantage and hence often not part of a release.
