After recovering from a very successful World Cup last summer, we are again busy with the development and improvement of our robots. Read below what we are up to!
The final day of the tournament has arrived. The moment of truth. The moment all aspects should come together. The moment everybody worked that hard for the past few days. @Home has to compete against the same oppenent as they did in 2019 during the final and MSL has to compete against the Falcons from who they lost the last match during the last round robin due to some bugs. It will be a tense day!
The third day of the World Cup arrived, the day before the finals. This day determined which teams will make it into these finals. MSL had a few difficulties during the day, but managed to end with a great semi-final! For @Home it was a very close battle. Three teams were fighting for a place in the finals. Read how it went below!
The second day of the world championship was an exciting one. In MSL we had the chance to improve our scores during the second match against every competing team. Especially the match against the Falcons was a good practice for the third round robin that will start tomorrow. The @Home team got the chance to redo the challenges of yesterday and with success! We made it to the second stage in which more complex tasks have to be performed.
Today was the first competition day of the RoboCup 2022 World Championship. Our soccer robots played their first matches in Round Robin 1 and service robot HERO performed several challenges in stage 1. The soccer robots dominated all the games they played, which gives us good hope for the rest of the tournament. @Home had some bad luck during some of the challenges, but managed to end the day with a great amount of points.
After two years the moment is finally there, we can compete again and defend our world title of 2019! It is exciting to be at RoboCup again and to find out what kind of progression other teams have made over the last years. This Sunday the whole team came together in Bangkok and had a nice catch up at a restaurant in the neighborhood of the hotel. This year's team is a combination of members who are new to the RoboCup and members who have already been participating for years. Therefore it was nice to meet up with each other, share experiences and getting to know each other better. We are now ready to start the competition!
