Turns out industry robots do produce art as well. Today soccer robots of Nao-Team HTWK met a robot that performs industrial manipulation and handling as its day job. However, during the quiteter hours of the exhibition it drew a portrait of our soccer robot.

Robots care about green fields as well

Ursula negotiates with Landroid
For quite some time now robot soccer is played on artificial turf. A well-cut turf is required for robots to make precise shots. In their quest to become more and more self-reliant soccer robots have started to ask lawn-mowing robots to handle the turf of the soccer field.

Greetings from Austria

Robots (and Humans) from Dutch Nao Team and Nao-Team HTWK
Dornbirn Herbstmesse (Autumn Fair) and myRobotcenter invited us to present some world class robot soccer skills in exhibition matches together with the Dutch Nao Team. The 70th annual Herbstmesse offers lots of robot-related goodies like drone racing, exhibitions of industrial and at-home robots, a robot barkeeper and robotics competitions for school children. With such an impressive lineup a soccer match can't be missing. Thus Dutch Nao Team and Nao-Team HTWK will perform several friendly matches in the next 3 days. Feel free to visit us!

Finals! We won the semi-finals against a strong HULKs (Twitter) team 4:1. Our opponent's defense was very strong, with at times 4 of 5 robots close to the ball to block us from moving it towards the goal.

We'll face B-Human, the current world champion, in the finals again. The match will begin at 1:15 pm local time (7:15 pm CET). Wish us luck. Livestream:

Thanks to Berlin United for the exiting game.

Our semi-finals match will be at 10am (4pm CET) tomorrow against Hamburgs HULKs. Whish us luck.

RoboCup 2018 Day 3 - 9:0 Victory against Bembelbots

Our first match today was with 9:30 am quite early. We had to play against our friends of the team Bembelbots from Frankfurt and won with a result of 9:0.

During this tournament, we always played together as Team-Team, but the Bembelbots were able to achieve the jump from the Challange Shield into the Champions Cup, a huge success for that team. It was a match between friends.


RoboCup 2018 Day 2 - 2:4 Lose in the Joint Team Match #3

Our last match today was the most fun one until now. It was the joint team match against B-Swift, the combination of B-Human and UNSW Sydney (former rUNSWift). Although it concluded in a 2:4 lose for us, it was one of the most fun and exciting games for us this RoboCup. We look forward to similar games soon.

RoboCup 2018 Day 2 - 4:0 Victory against Nomadz

Today we won our only main ladder game, where we played against Nomadz, 4:0 on the outdoor field. We are still improving, fixing and tuning modules.

Our next and last match will be a joint team one again. Team Team-Team will face Team B-Swift of B-Human and UNSW Sydney, a very strong combination. The match is 7:30 pm UTC-5 (1:30 am CET).

RoboCup 2018 Day 2 - 2:0 Victory in the Joint Team Match #2

We won our second match as Team-Team with the Frankfurt Bembelbots against AstroNAOtas 2:1. We were able to fix some of our communication problems, so it went a bit better than our first match yesterday.
