Team Edinbots take part in RoboCup 2018
A team of students represented the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics at RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, Canada from the 15th to the 22nd of June.
Team Edinbots competed in the Rescue Simulation League, a challenge where a group of robots navigate autonomously through an unknown disaster environment in search of victims. Edinbots competed against a team from Cambridge University in an exhilarating, fast-paced and tight final set of 4 matches, with Cambridge winning by an extremely narrow margin.
Hugo Sardinha, PhD student, said, “Competitions such as the RoboCup are an incredible opportunity, allowing students to develop, test and improve their current work, which in turn stimulates competitiveness and creativity. The team is deeply grateful to the ECR, especially the Executive Committee, the Administrative team, and our supervisors, for supporting us and making this great experience possible!”
