get link 2016 has become a very successful year for us not just because Team ResCube have represented Hungary for the first time at the RoboCup World Championship 2016 between June 28 and July 4 but also we have gained professional experience and received superb prizes and awards.
Robocup Design Award Sponsored By Flower Robotics
The Flower Robotics as one of the key sponsors of RoboCup World Championship 2016 selected our robot among all (around 500!) robots of all teams as the best design. This is like a constructor award, and our robot was evaluated by a large committee based on the submitted documentation, on personal interviews and on examination of the real robot. They have emphasized that our key strengths were: approaching problems with creativity, designing a custom, versatile robot from scratch without using any templates. Last but not least, our team’s open and challenge seeking attitude were also important factors for the nomination.
For the first time in ten years, the world championship of robots will be taking place in Germany again.
In the summer of 2016, Leipziger Messe will host the 20th RoboCup, the world championship of robots. The leading international robotics event takes place in a different country each year. It was last held in Germany in 2006, parallel to the soccer world championship, and delighted thousands of visitors in Bremen. “RoboCup is a fascinating event − participants demonstrate top scientific and technical achievements in an entertaining way,” says Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe. “This event is just as interesting for experts as it is for the media and the audience. We are so pleased that our joint proposal with the German RoboCup National Committee, WorldSkills Germany, the Free State of Saxony, and the city of Leipzig has been a success. We would also like to thank the Federal Ministry of Education and Science, as well as our many supporters from business, science and media.”
