We appear twice in this short video!
With the gala-dinner last evening and the symposium today the 2016 RoboCup World Championship has officially ended. During the last week Rescube Robotics has achieved the most amazing success of its short history. Let us see the details:
- In the main competition, the RoboCup Rescue Robot League we were finally ranked 9th out of the 19 international teams – overtaking some very prestigious and experienced teams.
- Besides the main competition there were six special contests organized for the teams mostly around some specific skills (i.e. dexterity, mapping, mobility etc.). We have participated at the competition for the outdoor transportation robots (Best Outdoor CarryBot) and we have won the 1st place with a strong advantage.
- Much to our surprise we have won the RoboCup Design Award provided by the Japanese Flower Robotics one of main sponsors of RoboCup, thus recognizing our custom, ingenious and innovative solutions.
As you may know, Rescube Robotics is competing at one of the world’s largest Robotics Championship, the RoboCup in Leipzig, Germany. The prestigous event hosts 3500 competitors from around 40 countries, in the Rescue Robot League there are 19 teams from South Korea to Mexico.
Our apologies for the rare news: even at the last time everyone tries to do his best to make our robot even more dexterous, clever and reliable. We don’t sleep much, but in exchange we are pretty happy each time we look at the scoreboard.
It’s a great pleasure and even more an honor for us to be invited to the Science NO Fiction Festival organized by National Instruments Hungary.
Meet with us this weekend (March 19-20) at Kölcsey Centre in Debrecen – we will be there throughout the whole event, and we are going hold an on-stage presentation on Saturday at 11:30am!
The Science NO Fiction Festival is a rich entertainment for both young and old. Throughout the two day event we will show you how the most modern appliances are made, you can try everything that is LEGO – from building blocks to game programming, experience the virtual reality and the magical world of science.”
Meet us at the ELTE Robot and Artificial Intelligence Day 2015! The open end free event welcomes all visitors interested in AI and robotics with interesting presentations and spectacular shows. Of course we will also attend, and if everything goes right we will bring three robots: the robot we used at the last Robocup; the first working prototype of the robot under construction for the next year’s championship; and a small test-robot full of interesting sensors.
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.”
Last Friday we had a great chance to showcase our 2015 robot at Óbuda University at the event of European Researchers’ Night 2015. We climbed the stairs with our robot while the juice in our batteries lasted and some lucky ones had the chance to drive our robot all by themselves. We had a real great evening and are grateful to the organizers.
It has been on our todo list for a year at least but we always had more urgent tasks to finish…
