SPL vs HL

After the finals at RoboCup Iran Open 2014, we were asked whether we wanted to play a friendly match against the winning team from the SPL (MRL).

So we went over to the SPL field and started our preparations. Because we played on their field with slightly different lighting, different goals and with a much [...]

Iran Open – The Games

However, if you followed us on Facebook (no Facebook account required), you already know how it end. In this [...]

Iran Open – Second setup day

After having gone to bed early last night, everybody woke up this morning refreshed. After a nice breakfast, we went to the hall and started working on some improvements. It remains to be seen how much we will actually be able to finish in time, as they close the hall quite early for a RoboCup [...]

Iran Open – First setup day

At the end, we arrived at our [...]

We will follow-up with videos of the game later this month. Right now we are [...]

German Open – Finals!!

It was a full day, with the third round robin game this morning against the Bold Hearts, and later the semi-finals.

German Open – First day of games

Today we started with the round robin games. At noon we placed against the Hamburg Bit Bots. Though we managed to move the ball towards their goal, and sometimes even quite close, stability issues caused our robots to miss all chances to score. At the end, the game ended with a 1:1 tie (both goals [...]

German Open – second setup day

Today was the second setup day. We started the day with an extensive check of the robots, improving various aspects and preparing for the second test match against the Hamburg Bit Bots. This game went much better (for both sides) than yesterday, with a final score of 1:0 for us (pictures below). Obviously this still [...]

The first setup day at the RoboCup German Open comes to an end. We prepared all robots, tested most of our features on the large field, and did a test game against the Hamburg Bit-Bots.
