Our team just got back from the FIRA 2014 Hurocup, co-located with the International Robot Olympiad, in Beijing. HuroCup is the most challenging humanoid robot competition out there, with a single robot has to compete in 8 events: sprint, marathon, weight lifting, obstacle run, lift and carry, united soccer, basketball, and wall climbing. 30 teams took part in the event. Our team did well winning 2nd place in Wall Climbing with our smaller robots (45cm tall) and 3rd place in Sprint with our new larger robot (85cm tall).
There is also a gallery of pictures from FIRA 2014, and two new publications presented at the symposium in the publications section.
