UPennalizers to compete at RoboCup 2015 in Hefei

June 24th, 2015

The UPennalizers will be competing in the RoboCup World Championship 2015 in Hefei, Anhui Province, China in July! Teams will have two days to set up (7/17-7/18) and competitions will run from 7/19-7/22. The event will conclude with a symposium on the 23rd.

RoboCup is an international robotics competition that draws teams from all over the world to build and program robots that play soccer. The University of Pennsylvania RoboCup team was one of the first participants in the original Sony Aibo league (renamed the Standard Platform 4-legged league in 2004), and participated in all the international competitions between 1999-2006. The team finished among at least the quarterfinalists in every one of those eight years. After a short hiatus in 2007-2008, the team has reformulated with a new group of undergraduates and graduate students from various departments at the Engineering School at the University of Pennsylvania.
