Our team is participating in the RoboCup German Open in Magdeburg from April 1st till April 5th.
The non-public set-up days are today and tomorrow. On these days all teams are setting up their equipment and getting accustomed to the arena and surroundings. The competitions start at April 3rd. We are expecting a very interesting challenge in the @Work league.
Our competitors this year are the b-it-bots from the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University (Germany), the Oulum Robotic team from the Oulum Robotic Institute (Iran), the WF-Wolves from the Ostfalia University (Germany) and the smartlab@work team from the University of Liverpool (United Kingdom).
Our team experienced some changes this year: This is the first competition under our new Team-Leader Lennart Classen. We are supported by four new members, we are using a 3D-Vision for the first time and we have reworked the navigation completely. So we are highly motivated and looking forward to the following days.
We arrived in Eindhoven to start our title defence project. This year we have to fight in the RoboCup@Work league against the WF Wolves (Wolfenbüttel, Germany), the b-it-Bots (Bonn, Germany), the Swarmlab@Work team (Maastricht, Netherlands) and the RoboErectus team (Singapur). The set-up days are from Monday till Wednesday, the first competition will start on Thursday.
2500 participants are competing against each other in different leagues at the RoboCup 2013. The latest pictures and background informations can be found at the official homepage for the RoboCup 2013.

Our team is currently at the RoboCup German Open 2013 in Magdeburg. The competitions are taking place since April the 26th. The participating teams are the b-it-bots (Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, Germany), the WF Wolves (Wolfenbüttel, Germany) and a newcomer, the SwarmLab@Work team (Maastricht, Netherlands). The SwarmLab@Work team had to prove themselves in the first Basic Navigation Test and managed to take the lead. But we could fight back after the Basic Manipulation Tests and took the lead after the Precision Placement Test. We are currently leading with 107.5 points. The Basic Transportation Test, the last and final test will make the decision.
