This book includes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 14th RoboCup International Symposium, held in Singapore, in June, 2010 - representing the scientific tracks structured in four sessions entitled simulation and rescue robots; robot perception and localization; robot motion and humanoid robots; and human robot interaction and semantic scene analysis. The 20 revised full papers and 16 revised short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 78 submissions. Documenting the research advances of the RoboCup community since the predecessor symposium, this book constitutes a valuable source of refrence and inspiration for R&D professionals interested in RoboCup or in robotics and distributed AI more generally.
