The price to get to Mexico

For those who are not into RoboCup: it´s world cup time in Mexico! But to participate one has to get there. Our team had to split, due to several reasons. So Marcus and I (Paul) decided to get there together. We wanted to get there cheaply. And the cheapest way to get to Mexico was […]

At the clinic

Our robots´s are in Paris at the Nao clinic. For the first time in our team´s history we have sent them to Aldebaran so early. We hope that they will be ready for the RoboW. The good thing is that our simulator is almost ready, so we can keep working! Moreover the Naos are not […]

First game is over

We lost the first game 2-3. It was very close and we did look good. The only bad thing was that we played 80% of the time with only 3 robots and 30% with only two: Battery problems and a broken stick made our game impossible to win. After our 1:0 advantage we could make […]

Schedule

In a few minutes we will have our first game. We are still waiting for our repaired robot from Aldebaran, so with bad luck, we can play with only 3 Naos :( We play in a group with HTWK Leipzip and DAInamite. The complete schedule for all teams can be found at tzi.de We will […]

We arrived

This year we arrived as one of the first teams. We seem to be better prepared than the years before :D Without Marcus (who had an injury) and without Heinrich (who is going to Seattle) we are not having really a chance, but anyway, we are here, we are willed to win and we do […]

The Doors would say it like this…

We won and lost once. Not enough to come forth. The Doors would say: This is the end Beautiful friend This is the end My only friend, the end Of our elaborate plans, the end Of everything that stands, the end No safety or surprise, the end Nothing more to say :(

We are back in the game – for now

We may not be at the level of Iran Open, but, we are on a good way on it. We beat Nubots in the penalty shoot out. So we made it to the next round. Now we are in a group with B-Human, Dutch Nao Team and Pennalizers. It´s going to be hard again… Paul´s […]

One defeat and one draw with the NAOs

After heavy initial problems due to our infrastructure changes, we lost the first game 0-6 and tied the second game 0-0! So wo have to play in the intermediate round against SPQR Chile, Nubots or Edinferno. Let´s hope for the best and work even harder to win this game. At least we did better in […]

Let the games begin!

We are in Istanbul! The hostel is o.k., the weather is great (for computer scientists – that we are – it may not be too important :), we have cought a good spot close to our field and the team is highly motivated . We are in group c where we will play against Austin […]

Istanbul here we come!

The RoboCup world championship in Istanbul will be a great experience! We are all really excited and will do our best to win the games. Since we are changing all our infrastructure, it will be (as every competition) a real hard fight instead of a funny robot soccer entertainment. We will keep you up to […]
