From the 1st to the 4th of June the European RoboCup took place. It was great to be present at a tournament again after almost three years. We may not have played tournaments in the past year, but we did make a lot of developments that we could finally test in real matches.
With a great final match we took the European title back to Eindhoven. The team of VDL Robot Sports is beaten with a convincing score of 13-1. After the finals we played against the professional women soccer team of Guimarães, Vitória SC. Despite the fact that they played on half power, we learned incredibly much from this game. Furthermore, we suprised the soccer players with a strong penalty series.
On the 26th and 27th of June, the first online variant of the RoboCup tournament took place. This year it was different that we are used to. We did not play soccer matches against each other, but we competed in the Technical Challenge and Scientific Challenge. This year we only participated with our soccer robots. We ended up in the 1st place of the Technical Challenge and the 2nd place of the Scientific Challenge. View the scores here!
