Near East University Robotic Football Team NEU Islanders’ Goal is to Protect World Championship Title…

NEUIslanders, the Near East University Robotic Football Team, winning the championship in the Inter-Robots World Cup held in Canada in June 2018, went to Australia to participate in RoboCup 2019.

The NEUIslanders team is on their way to attend RoboCup 2019 in Sydney, Australia, that will continue between the dates 1-8 July 2019, according to information provided by the Press and Public Relations Directorate of the Near East University.

The goal of the NEUIslanders team, which has participated eight times in the RoboCup World Cup, is to retain the championship title in the competition, which will be held with the participation of teams from the world’s best technology and engineering universities.

Artificial Intelligence of Robots Developed…
The team captain of NEUIslanders Ersin Aytaç said that the team, which completed the World Cup held in Canada in 2018 as the champion of the tournament, worked hard for a year to retain the title of champion. The mechanical parts of robots that caused problems last year have been renewed and at the same time the artificial intelligence was developed to allow the game to be played faster, said Aytaç.

Game Speed Increased…
With the new algorithms renewed and developed, the pass hits of the robots during the game were increased from 40% to 80%. With the innovation made in the communication system of the robots, it was ensured that the communication with the robots is now twice faster during the match. This system will allow the robots to decide their next move during the match faster.

Competitors Are Determined…
The NEUIslanders team will participate in the tournament as the head of the series and meet the University of British Columbia, Georgia Institute of Technology, and the National Technology Institute from Japan. In the 2018 World Cup, NEUIslanders had defeated British Columbia University 3-0, Georgia Institute of Technology University 2-0 and in 2017 National Technology Institute 2-1.
