The Tech United/ASML - campus tour has started today at the Strabrecht College in Geldrop. The Strabrecht College was one of the first high-schools which gave a positive response to the offer to receive a free(!) demonstration from Tech United. For this occasion, the gymnasium of this high-school has been transformed into a RoboCup-Field, on which our soccer robots can show their skills. During the demonstrations on the campus tour, we try to make the students enthousiastic for choosing a Technical Study after finishing high-school. Of course, our soccer robots are a great way to accomplish this goal.

Tech United World Champion Robot Soccer!
For the second time Tech United became World Champion Robot Soccer after winning the Middle-Size League final of the RoboCup 2014 in João Pessoa. Tech United won the final from the Chinese team Water from the 'Beijing Information Science and Technology University', the team which took the title from Tech United last year. After a very exiting match Tech United got revanche and defeated team Water in the final with a score of 3-2!
@Home team finished in second place!
AMIGO defended his second place, deserved in the first 10 challenges, with great succes in the final! The @Home team demonstrated that the operater can give an assignment to AMIGO using a tablet and that our care robot is able to explore his surroundings and learn to know objects. The judges thought AMIGO did great and deserved enough points to stay ahead of the number 3. This means that AMIGO finished second, one place higher than last year! The winning team WrightEagle from China was too strong for now, but next year we will try to beat them!
