After evaluating all of the submitted TDMs, we would like to
announce that all of the teams who submitted TDMs have qualified
for the RMRC World Championship in Bordeaux! As a reminder, the
- CR-ÆSIR (Mexico)
- Creative Town (China)
- Insper Dynamics (Brazil)
- Knight Sky (USA)
- Kokany Corporations (Hungary)
- SzechenyiRobotics (Hungary)
- Team Bento (Germany)
There are some familiar teams and also some new teams here which
is great to see!
We also have two teams who have qualified on past performance:
- Mechatronics Rescue Team (Slovenia)
- S.A.R.T. (Australia)
Finally, we are delighted to announce that, as the result of an
essay competition for French local high schools that we ran with
the assistance of the Bordeaux LOC, we have qualified a local
French team, Team Daquin from lycée Fernand Daguin, Mérigna, just outside of Bordeaux! They will
also receive an initial kit of parts, thanks to the IEEE
Robotics and Automation Society Technical Committee on
RoboCup, and our friends at Robotis, to jumpstart their entry
into the competition.
This effort to foster the involvement
of new teams in the local area of the World Championship was
something that we ran as a pilot this year, and that we hope
we can continue into the future.
Now for some logistical details.
I am running a bit behind in getting
the website sorted out as it really needs an update but I hope
to have all of the TDMs, plus Team Daquin's essay, up and
I am also confirming the registration
details (RMRC is in a slightly weird spot, being between Major
and Junior) and have only just sent in the list of teams so
don't try and register *just* yet. I'll send another message
out when I have all the details and confirmed that the team
list has been propagated through the system.
