B-Human won its today’s two games again. The first game against Z-Knipsers ended 10:0 and the second against Nao-Devils 8:0. Especially the second game had some breathtaking moments. For example a ball stopped on the goal line and caused a high intense moment. But in the end B-Human played a good game and kept it interesting for the viewers.
Tomorrow the semi finals will start. B-Human will play against RoboÉireann from Ireland. If B-Human wins this game, it will proceed to the finals and will try to become for the 6th time German Champion.
Today started the German Open in Magdeburg and Team B-Human played its first games. The little robots played these games successfully and won the first game 3:1 and the second one 7:0. The last intensive two days were used to prepare the robots for the competition, but now everybody is glad that the hard work got paid off. Right now we are in the preliminary. In this part of the competition we have to play four games and if we succeed, we will play at the semi final.
In this German Open there is an additionaly competition next to the original team competition. At the DropIn-Competition every team provides a robot. These single robots will be formed to a single team and it will be rated how good a single robot can interact in a team with new team members.

Today was our first full setup day. As the first “Technical Challenges” as well as an “official test match” will take place tomorrow, we have a lot of stuff to test and a bunch of bugs to fix. Recently, our hardware turned out to be a bottleneck, as most of our robots are quite battered after many test kilometers in our lab. Fortunately, the “NAOclinic” opened today and started to repair all teams’ robots. Our first robots will be back in training soon. We hope to perform with full strength in tomorrows competitions.
After 3 hours of driving, the first B-Humanista arrived at about 1pm in Eindhoven. First task, for everyone was to check in at the hotel before coming to the RoboCup area where the last team member arrived at 4pm. We then prepared our robots for the first tests which are to be performed this evening. That is the so called “Open Challenge”, which is a small additional competition each team can participate in voluntarily. Our contribution to this challenge will be a corner shoot which currently does not exist as an official rule. This competition takes place on Wednesday whereas the preliminary rounds for the main competition start on Thursday.
