We are in the finals of the German Open

Today was a long day for all teams.

The morning saw the remaining preliminary games (two per team). After we fixed an issue in the walking code, and added a motion to roll from the front to the back to be able to always get back up, we were quite optimistic that we would score […]

We survived the first group games

Today were the first half of the preliminaries (round robin). We played two games, which you can see below in the recorded live-streams the Hamburg Bit-Bots provided.

We tied 0:0 in both games. However we managed to gain possession of the ball quite often […]

German Open (Setup) Day 2

Yesterday was the second and last setup day. We spent a lot of time testing and improving the robot software in the morning, in anticipation of a friendly game against the Hamburg Bit-Bots in the afternoon. Progress was good, we managed to get the walking more stable and standing up at least from the back […]

German Open (Setup) Day 1

Striker Emmy still managed […]

Second day of the Group phase and semifinals

We reached the finals!

The first game against the Hamburg BitBots was exciting as always, […]

We have won our first match!

The friendly match on Tuesday against our friends, the Hamburg BitBots, provided us with enough material to be busy coding a long way into the night. But the hassle paid off:

The next morning, in our first game against the Iranian team Parand, we still encountered problems, but a lot less. The Parand strikers […]

Happy Easter, dear Fans and fellow FUmanoids! Our easter-weekend was pretty busy: filled with preparations and teambuilding exercises in beautiful surroundings (look at those mountains!).

Yesterday was the first setup-day on location and the first chance to test the robots on the playing field while around us the exhibition was being […]
