It was a return to the source for RoboCup 2017, which took place last week in Nagoya Japan, 20 years after its launch in the same city.
Bigger than ever, the competition brought together roboticists from around the world. Originally focussed on robot football matches, RoboCup has expanded to include leagues for rescue robots, industrial robots, and robots in the home. Kids are also part of the fun, competing in their own matches and creative shows. You can watch video introductions of all of the leagues here, or watch a quick summary below.
And here’s a scroll through 5 hours of football glory from this year’s competition.
Congratulations to all the winners and participants!
