The football robots won the final against Water and thereby claimed the world title!! This thrilling final ended with an equal score and during the extra time both team scored once. Which means we needed penalties! Our keeper stopped all five penalties so when we sored the first penatly, we knew we earned the world title!
@Home perfomed an excellent final, but they received too little points to compensate for the small gap between them and the first place holder, Tobi. So they are second in the @Home league!! A very impressive outcome!
The first matchday of RoboCup 2016 is over. It was a successful day for both teams. For the care robots, three challenges were scheduled. SERGIO had to navigate and avoid obstacles and during the Speech Recognition Challenge he had to answer a lot of questions. Answering the questions went very well but he had some troubles with navigating to the right person. AMIGO also did a challenge today. During the Person Recognition Challenge he was presented to a person after which the person positioned himself into the crowd. It was the task of AMIGO to find that person and provide some background informations, i.e. male/female or age.
The football robots have also played their first matches. The first match against our German friends from Carpe Noctem ended in a 11-0 victory. Also the matches against the ASML Falcons and the Japanese team Hibikino-Musashi ended in a victory of our robots. During the first day we scored 32 times and our keeper Hans van Sleutelen kept his goal clean; 0 goals against. A great start of the soccer robots!
