RoboCup's TeenSize


The University of Bonn's Team NimbRo are sharing their RoboCup soccer expertise with this ...
Just five teams managed to qualify for RoboCup's TeenSize League in 2012, mainly because building a bipedal humanoid robot that stands over three feet tall (95 cm) is a difficult proposition for most universities. However, a pair of commercial options may lead to bigger and better robotic soccer matches. The first one, from the University of Bonn, builds on the success of their award-winning platform. The second option from hobby kit makerRoboBuilder, which is something of the new kid on the block, may prove to be a worthy competitor.
