July 28, 2012, organized by the Working Committee of China Association for Artificial Intelligence Robot Soccer, hosted by Harbin Far East Institute, the Fourteenth Far Eastern Polytechnic Cup National Robot Championship cum Robot Contest 2012 FIRA World Cup team trials officially came to an end. Grade 2009 undergraduate Li Si, 2010 undergraduates Wang Dong and other 3 students from our college with their 11vs11 robot soccer team won the second prize of tournament 11vs11 robot soccer project; 2009 undergraduates Luo Xinji, Zhang Yingying, Yao Shuanglu, Xu Huanran and another student with their 5vs5 team won third prize in the 5vs5 robot soccer project.
The national robotics tournament in total has four main categories of events, divided into semi-autonomous robot competition, fully autonomous robot competition, humanoid robot competition and simulation robot competition. It is designed to allow the robot into people’s lives and enrich students’ extracurricular lives, to cultivate the ability of students’ hand making, teamwork and cooperation, and scientific and technological innovation capability. Meanwhile, through various forms of school competition, domestic and international competitions, there would be promoting common development, making contribution to the development of robot soccer career.
There are many well-known universities, research institutions, R&D enterprises over the country and hundreds of delegations from the United States, Canada, and South Korea participating this time.
