Now that all robots and robot builders have returned to the lab safely, a short report about the IranOpen seems like a good idea.
The preparation days went along rather smoothly. At first we had planned to take along our new robot model but due to undelivered parts we had to leave our newest team […]
In the past the FUmanoids were able to gain a special reputation. Optimizing hard- and software each season by only making little changes? Rubbish! We rather send a new series of robots into the fray and rewrite our entire software, not without considerable pressure of time. This year will be no exception.
A new generation […]
The FUmanoids did it again again!
Years after the scheduled and years before the actual opening of Berlins new airport the FUmanoids finished another piece of hardware. The new power supply board works just nice! Assembly and programming everything went pretty quick this time. In less than one week everything got worked out and in […]
We know, this is kind of late, but still:
The FUmanoids won the Humanoid KidSize Soccer tournament of German Open 2015!
As a short reminder: Due to the new set of rules all teams were struggling to play a decent game. Especially the new artificial turf made walking and getting up hard as never […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Yesterday morning (Wednesday) we arrived in the lab early in the morning and drove to RoboCup German Open in Magdeburg. After arriving and unloading the cars, the first task was to inspect the playing field. As you know this year’s rules require a new, more challenging ball (at least 50% white, not the uniform orange […]
