Student Robotics 2016/2017 – Competition Summary

We just finished two videos on this years Student Robotics Competition from our point of view. We wanted to give this years competition a proper send-off and thought that by creating a nice sum up we might be able to conserve some of the fun times we had.

This was our first day at the competition, take a look:

This was our second day at the competition, take a look:

We would like to thank all of Student Robotics for a fun year and a truly one of a kind, incredible, unique and fun experience.

Competition Day #2.6

We lost the second knockout match because our bot thought that cuddling with a wall would be a cute and funny idea. I don’t know, maybe robots have some weird kind of humor. Thank you for the support of all people from Germany and all around the globe who  read our blog.

Good luck to all other contestants and see you next year in the finals. 😉

Competition Day #2.3

After the league matches which went pretty good in our opinion, we are ready for the knockout phase. In the photo, that was taken a couple of minutes ago, we sang happy birthday because of the tenth anniversary of Student Robotics. Congratulations! Hopefully Holy Barbara, patroness of the the mineworkers, is in our favor and we can manage to win a couple of rounds.

Good luck to a the other contestants!

Competition Day #2.2

After five difficult matches with some mixed results, we realized that the bot needed some rest. Some members of our team are also exhausted, due to all the funny gestures they make during the match, to get the bot going. We are all enjoing the break and getting ready for the next match.

Next match starting in…
