Bremen robots win 2019 RoboCup in Sydney

Robots are increasingly making their presence felt not
only in the industry, but also in football. At the international robotics
competition – the RoboCup – in Sydney this year, the team B-Human from Bremen
showed what small robots can do in the popular sport. Here, the German Standard
Platform league champion fought for the world championship title against
the reigning world champion from Leipzig.

When it comes to robotics, the annual RoboCup is the
most important international competition. Teams of apprentices, students and
faculty meet to test their new developments, and share their experiences and
knowledge. This year, the international competition was held in Sydney. During
the four-day tournament, the most varied types of robots competed in six

teams play against each other, with five NAO robots in each team. In the final

Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI РDeutsches Forschungszentrum für
Künstliche Intelligenz) showed once again that they are among the best.

For the fourth time, Team B-Human and the reigning world
champions from Leipzig entered the final of the RoboCup. While the team from
Bremen were superior without conceding goals in the preliminary round as well
as in the semi- and quarter-finals, they were trailing 0-1 after the first half
in the final. In an exciting second half, the small Bremen robots pulled
together and won the world championship title with a 2-1 score at the final
