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 […]

4th place in the simulation!

After reaching the semifinals in the simulation, we were kicked out by the BoldHearts which made the first place. Since there were 24 teams this is the unofficial world championchip, so this is really a good result! Offcourse we are a little bit disappointed – especially Yuan who was coding all the nights and did […]

And the winner is…

…Nao Team Humboldt! …NAO TEAM HUMBOLDT! …NAO TEAM HUMBOLDT! It was again a very close game: we tied 2-2 and had penalty shoot out. The pitty was, that Cerberos had no goalie in the beginning. So after 2-0 we took our time out to allow Cerberos to fix their goalie… …we are so happy but […]

Update FINALS!!!!

As mentioned before we had a real hard discussion on the semifinal game against MRL from Iran. They had concerns about a referee´s decision. They claimed there was a local gamestuck (one robot is doing nothing and blocking the ball so that other robots can´t find the ball). This situation then lead to a goal […]


We made it! All the details later. We can already tell that it was f***ing close!   STOP! The opponent is challenging the result, so they are asking us to repeat the second half. We are really in a conflict. What shall we do?

We are in the semifinals

We made it through the intermediate round and are in the semifinals where we are going to play against the Iranean team MRL! We hope to win and will inform you after the match. Until then there´s still a lot of work to do. As here for the goalie. Programming on the field for the […]

Disappointing draw vs. Cerberus

This morning started with the welcoming. It collided with our first game, so we could not join the whole ceremony, but only the beginning. Afterwards we had only few minutes to prepare the Nao’s for the game. We made it in time and tied 2-2 versus Cerberus. This is disappointing inasmuch as we could have […]

Today is our first game

In the SPL we are in a group with Cerberus (Turkey) and the Dutch Nao Team (Netherlands). This was announced at the Technical Commitee. The procedure is as always: first every team plays against all other teams of its group. There are two groups. The two first places are directly qualified for semifinals. The other […]

Iran here we come

The last days of GermanOpen were very stressfull and so we hoped to get enough sleep before starting in the IranOpen… Well, we arrived at 5 am and it took not less than 4 hours to arrive at the “Hotel”. It is situated within the olympic town of Tehran and it was some kind of […]

There is hope!

In the last days we all were focussed on the standard platform league. We had a lot of things to fix and so the simulation league just went fine without too much incidents. We reached the semifinals so far. So stay tuned!

The difference between pessimists and optimists

We can´t win anymore BUT we still can save our honor and our moral is up again after the short breakdown! Since we get a crate of beer from the others (RoboEireann if we win against the devils) and from the devils if we loose, the party tonight is saved and as we have nothing […]

Disaster versus RoboEireann

After a very promissing game yesterday against B-Human, today everything went wrong: One Nao broke its neck, another one crashes all the time and our motions were not as good as expected. The good news was, that the Nao Devils helped us out with one of their robots, so we could keep playing 4 vs. […]

Good bye good night sleep

Today we have our first game at 11:20am. So we decided to get up at 5am to fix some issues before playing. The problem is, that we decided to do that at 1am! So we slept only a couple of hours, literally. I don´t know what is better: to win and get to the semifinals […]

During the game Nao Team Humboldt vs. B-Human

Here we still had all players in the game. Notice that three of our players were punished because of pushing, so that we had to play the last seconds of the game only with the goalie, which ran away right after kick off right back into his goal :D

B-Human 9 NaoTH 0

If one only takes the final result into account, one might think, we sucked…but we didn´t! We were the first team which did not loose by 10:0 We played for the first time with 4 players (only the second half) and it looked not that bad. But as always there´s so much to do that […]

The moment of truth

So in a few minutes the B-Human team is going to find out what it takes to beat us :D 16:30 is kick-off. Lets hope we survive the first half! All the results can be found at the page.

GermanOpen 2011 in Magdeburg

Dieses Jahr steht ein Jubiläum an: 10. Geburtstag der German Open! Davon ist allerdings nicht viel zu sehen: Alle Teams sind hochkonzentriert am Arbeiten und nicht am Feiern. Nach einem enttäuschenden 0:0 gegen Kouretes haben wir gegen die Bembelbots ein beeindruckend glückliches, lang erkämpftes und hochverdientes Tor geschossen. Nach dem 1:0 Sieg müssen wir aber […]

In this video we briefly present the current state of our research on Nao related to RoboCup SPL. In particular we demonstrate omnidirectional walk, dynamic kick motion, player recognition based on SURF, percept correction and self localization.

Friendly match against Fumanoids

We organized a friendly match last Saturday (20.11.2010) against the FUmanoids regarding to the lining up tasks and matches. Furthermore we could test already some recent changes against the vice-world champion of the Humanoid League, found new challenges and are pleased about efficient developments. The next test match takes place in our labor on the […]

Zwei Pokale beim AutCup2010

Nachdem gestern Abend der AutCup2010 mit einer Abschlussveranstaltung und Preisvergabe zu Ende ging. Wurde das Nao Team Humboldt zweimal auf die Bühne gebeten, um sich jeweils den ersten Platz für die Ligen SPL und 3D-Simulation abzuholen. Die Überreichung des Pokals für die SPL kam auch für uns überraschend, schließlich spielten wir außerhalb ohne jede Konkurrenz, […]

Vorstellung des Naos

Heute präsentierten wir die Früchte unserer Arbeit der letzten Wochen während der Halbzeitunterbrechung sowohl des kleinen und großen Finals der Aibo League. Die Leute waren wieder einmal sehr aufgeregt und können es kaum erwarten, den ersten Nao Fußballspiel zu sehen. Unser kleiner Roboter konnte bereits rund um den Fußballplatz wandern und Objekten, wie zum Beispiel […]

First Nao Demonstration

Today the BreDo-Brothers held the first demonstration of the real Nao. The NaoTeam decided not to participate at this demo in order to review a new development kit which was released on yesterday. From tomorrow we will present the new Nao in the half-time breaks of the Aibo League, as the new standard robot platform. […]

Meeting with Aldebaran

Today we had the opportunity to speak with Bruno, the chief executive of Aldebaran, which was very productive. The French want to think about and implement many of our wishes. According to their own statements they are very thankful for our feedback. In the afternoon there was a further presentation of the Nao held by […]

First tests

The work on our demonstrations has gathered momentum. We can now access pictures from the Nao’s camera, and are working on a tool called the MotionEditor with the help of which it will be possible to produce more complex motions. Tomorrow the chief executive of Aldebaran will pay us a visit, which will give us […]

Arrival in Hannover

We arrived on time in Hannover at 1.30pm and collected the Aibo robots from the main train station, as they had taken part in a demonstration […]
