Just about a decade ago when the robots were at a very basic stage, and drones were a figment of imagination and driverless cars, somewhat a fantastic flight of fantasy, the world probably didn’t think they would be sitting at a doorstep sooner than later. Today, whatever seemed like a distant image is a reality and a matter of serious business interest – whether it is a drone or a driverless car, or robots.
The University of NSW robot football team called rUNSWift beat best of the German robots with 5-1 to become world champions. The rUNSWift team was as ruthless as a real player could be, and went chasing goals after goals to beat their opponents with grit and super programming intelligence.
All through the tournament, they played against 20 teams, racking up a whopping 37 goals in the final match against their opponents, with only one goal conceded!
The game had an interesting start though. The Nao- Team HTWK from Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (Germany) took early possession of the field. However, with some super moments that gave some hair rising turn to the game, rUNSWift soon laid claim over the field and galvanised into action, ensuring every goal that happened on the field was made by Australian robots.
Just like their emotion-filled humans and much unlike them too, the untiring UNSW team struck back with an early goal and maintained constant pressure on the German team to defeat them at the end.
Those moments wrote a significant history about
