The Rome Maker Faire Family :-D

Here we have all teams present at the Maker Faire in Rome: SPQR, NomadZ and Nao-Team HTWK

That's all from us. Tobias, Stefan, Caro, Marvin and Thomas will use the day tomorrow to explore ancient Rome. We will head back home on Tuesday. Have fun and see you soon :-D

Making winners

With the Maker Faire concluding the award ceremony was in order. In accordance with the maker spirit permeating the halls the trophies for all robot teams were artisanally crafted at the venue.

We are happy to conclude our time at Maker Faire Rome and soon will carry out 1st place trophy home. We thank team NomadZ from Zürich and team SPQR from Rome for the great games.

Happy children all around

The exhibition continues to be a delight. The Robot Teams enjoy the venue as much as the young visitors do. Every game the Soccer Robots are cheered on from all sides.

With the day coming to a close we just finished the exhibition shootout. All teams were happy to show off their Penalty Shootout Skills.

At the moment we are preparing for the finals at 17 o'clock. Rome turned out to be a great place for a small fall tournament with local RoboCup Teams.

Results Sunday

FInd results from sunday here:

Group Phase - NomadZ

Here is our second game of the competition against Team NomadZ. The audience was absolutely thrilled and cheered us on... "H T W K... H T W K"... cool! We are very satisfied with the result 4:1.

Group Phase - SPQR

The first game on the event was very exciting, because there were still some heavy problems with the wifi.

Meeting team SPQR in their Home Arena

Playing Robot Soccer in Rome means teams SPQR feels at home. Team SQPR is based at Sapienza Università di Roma and was our first opponent.

The first half went well for us and ended with one goal scored for us. Team SQPR caught up to us in the second half and the match ended 1:1.

The sidelines were crowded with fair visitors when the penalty shootout started. Courious about the eventual winner people watched robots from both teams taking shots in turn. Team SPQR had problems recognizing the ball during the shootout. Resulting in Nao-Team HTWK winning 3:1.


This evening we did some communicational team building, because the last time we had meet is a few months ago. Therefore we used a multiplayer game which requires the communication between two or more people.
Keep talking and nobody explodes 😇

Heading towards Rome

This weekend we were invited to visit the Maker Faire Exhibition in Rome. Compared to recent RoboCup World Championships the city of Rome is a short trip for us.
Nevertheless, the journey was quite perilous. Due to problems with trains one of our human members nearly missed their flight. In the end our last team member arrived at the plane just before the cabin door was about to close. With all aboard Rome was reached in the end.
