2009 has been an extraordinary year for us. Nobody expected us to win the 2nd place in Graz and we knew that it’s going to be a tough task to repeat this success in 2010.
Now it’s the end of the RoboCup Season 2010 and once again: We’ve made it! Additionally we’ve won the Technical [...]
Here’s a nice video of the final:
After 1:2 in the first half, the Darmstadt Dribblers upped their pace in the second half and finished the game with 1:7. So we are 2nd (again, after losing 1:11 last year). This was also the second time we used our brand new goalie:

We won the semi-final against CIT Brains Kid from Japan with a score of 5:2 (we shot 4 goals) and are now making last checks before the final game against Darmstadt Dribblers. We will add photos and more links soon, for now here’s a team photo (including one CIT robot) taken after the semi-final.

At noon the final group game was against Chibi Dragon which we won with 5:0.
No official announcements yet, but from what we’ve been told by officials we are this year’s winner of the Technical Challenge in the Kid-Size league. Though we only succeeded in one challenge (throw-in, our pet-challenge as we barely missed a success in it last year) and tried a quick attempt in another, this was (luckily) [...]
Today was the first of three games in Round Robin 2, where 4 groups of 4 teams play against each other and the best two proceed in the quarter finals. The game ended with a 3:0 victory. Two goals shot by TKU did not count due to rule violations and our robots missed (by just [...]
Yesterday was setup day #2 and in the morning we had a quick demonstration game for some VIPs where one of our robot and two from other teams played against the Darmstadt Dribblers.

We arrived well last night at our hostel in Singapore’s China Town. After watching Germany play their second game in the World Cup in a restaurant/bar across the street, and a good nights rest (or not so much, depending on how everybody handled the 6 hour jet lag), we successfully managed our way to RoboCup.
