We just returned from RoboCup-2013, in Eindhoven, Netherlands, where we competed in the Humanoid League and had a paper in the RoboCup Symposium. We made it past the first round in the soccer events, and came in third in the technical challenge. As a side highlight, we also met Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.
Check out more pictures in the associated Gallery - there are some competition videos available too (see the video link in the left sidebar). We're now currently preparing for the FIRA robotics competition, in Malaysia in August.
Jennifer and the UofM Humanoids team competed at the IRC Robot World in Seoul, Korea. Robot World is the largest robotics event in Korea with 12,000 participants and spectators. Jennifer won 3rd place in the sprint event and in the marathon. There were 12 teams total and new world records in both events. The team's Firefly hats were also apparently a big media hit.
