“NeuIslanders” is representing the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is Canada

Named as “NeuIslanders”, the robotic football team was developed at the Near East University Robotics Laboratory and this year, NeuIslanders is participating in the RoboCup 2018 which is held at Montreal, Canada.

According to the press release issued by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations of Near East University, after a trip which took 24 hours, the NeuIslanders robotic football team reached Montreal, Canada and on the first training-preparation day of the competition, the robotic football team carried out check-ups and simulation tests. On the second day, the robotic team adjusted shooting a goal with the lighting available in the field and calibrated algorithms to move faster in the field. The colourful parts on the robots were converted to RoboCup 2018 colours and therefore the world cup original uniforms were worn by NeuIslanders robotic team. Prior to the tournament, NeuIslanders had a friendly match with Robofei-the robotic football team of Brasil and the NeuIslanders won a triumph with a score of 3-0.
