Watch: Australian Team Wins 2015 RoboCup in Soccer
The finale of the 19th annual RoboCup is wrapping up in Hefei, China today. The gathering showcases a robot football tournament but also contains three other gauntlets: RoboCup Rescue, [email protected], and [email protected]
There are sponsored events, as well, such as RoboCup Logistics Sponsored by FESTO. Some of this year’s competitions centre on speech and object recognition, as demonstrated by RoboCup’s GitHub page. There is also a dancing competition, and a number of ancillary events attended by younger engineers from schools around the world.
Started in 1997, the event is a showcase for hobbyists and members of the robotics industry. Each robot on the team is controlled by a different human. Watch below as the roughly two-foot-tall Australian robots take the victory in the short clip below.
