UH "Bold Hearts" RoboCup team are runners up in 3D Simulation competition at the 2009 RoboCup in Germany


Following on from the UH team's success in winning the 3D Humanoid Simulation competition at the Robocup German Open 2009, we are pleased to report that they were runners-up in the 3D Simulation competition at the RoboCup 2009 robot soccer world championships (http://www.robocup2009.org). RoboCup is one of the largest Robotics and AI competitions in the world, and is dedicated to create a push of the boundaries of science and technology in the field of AI and Robotics beyond the state-of-the-art. The Bold Hearts team, programmed by Sander van Dijk (PhD student), Peter Snow (MSc AI & Robotics student) and Vinny Pindoria (2nd yr BSc Computer Science student), under the tutelage of Dr. Daniel Polani, reached the final of the 3D Simulation League on Sunday in a dramatic and exciting competition, ahead of 19 other teams (in all there were 21 teams in the competition). In a tightly fought final, the Bold Hearts were beaten (3 - 1 after extra time; 0 - 0 after regular time) by a team from Southeastern University (SEU) in China, the Bold Hearts having scored first. Had the final been decided according to the golden goal rule, Bold Hearts would even have won. The other team from a UK university participating in a Robocup soccer event this year was Oxblue from Oxford, who came 6th out of 19 in the 2D Simulation League.(link)
