The paper by Marcell Missura and Sven Behnke: "Balanced Walking with Capture Steps" won the Best Science Paper Award at he 18th RoboCup International Symposium, Joao Pessoa, Brasil.

In the final, our robots Copedo and Dynaped met team Baset from Iran. Copedo played goalie and Dynaped, which had a new capture step feature enabled, was a field palyer. When struggling for the ball, robots of both sides often went down. Dynaped is not equipped to get up and had to be taken out, In these situations, the Baset robots, which got up quickly, scored. After 5:0 at half time, the game ended 8:4 for Baset.

Our robots Dynaped and Copedo met team Parand (Iran) in the last round robin game. Copedeo had the field player role and scored three times. After 2:1 at half time, the game ended 3:1 for NimbRo. Both teams will meet again in the semi-final in the evening. In the technical challenge, Dynaped got points for dribbling an arbitrary colored ball.

Our robots met team MU-L8  from USA. Dynaped was quick to reach the ball and scored reliably. The game ended early in the second half 10.0 for our robots. In the second game of the day, our robots met EDROM from Brasil. Dynaped scored reliably, but the second goal went into our own. Hence, the game ended in the second half 11:1 for NimbRo.

Today is the first day of the round robin. Our robots Dynaped and Copedo played their first match vs. team AUT-UofM, a joint team from Iran and Canada. Dynaped was the field player and scored three times in the second half. The AUT-UofM robots also had some good actions, but did not score. Our robots did not play well in the game vs the Iranian team Baset.

Our soccer robots won the Humanoid TeenSize competitions at RoboCup 2013!

In the final game, they met team CIT-Brains from Japan. The Japanese team had a good start with a dangerous situation in front of the NimbRo goal. Our robot Copedo, which was used as field player, could clear the situation. Dynaped played goalie. Both robots coordinated well who was going for the ball. NimbRo had a clear advantage and scored three goals in the first half. The game ended 4:0 for NimbRo.

In the semi-final, our robots Dynaped and Copedo met again team FUB-KIT (FU Berlin, Germany-Kyushu, Japan). The NimbRo robots scored reliably, yielding a final result of 8:0 (after 3:0 at half time). In the final, NimbRo will meet as in previous years team CIT-Brains from Japan.

Our robots scored in the Technical Challenge. In the Throw-in Challenge, Copedo found the ball at the side line, picked it up and made a throw. Copedo and Dynaped also scored in the Double Pass Challenge. In total, our robots reached 14 of 30 possible points.

Our robots played two more round robin games. First, they met team FUB-KIT, a joint team from Freie Universitšt Berlin and Kyushu Institute of Technology. Their lightweight robots were equipped with an innovative cable-driven mechanism, which allows to place all actuators in the hip. Copedo scored reliably, having only some problems to see the semi-transparent FUB-KIT robots. After 4:0 at half time, the game ended 6:0 for NimbRo. The second game was vs. team AcYut from India who reliably went to the ball. The game ended 5:0 for NimbRo (after 2:0 at half time). This makes NimbRo first of the round robin with 12:0 points and 20:1 goals.

Our team NimbRo TeenSize participates in the Humanoid League competitions of RoboCup 2013 in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
This year, both goals have the same color and visual landmarks on the sideline of the field have been removed. This makes localization on the field harder.

In the first round robin game, our robots Dynaped and Cosero met CIT-Brains from Japan. The Japanese team seems to be the strongest competitor in the TeenSize class. Both teams played well, went quickly to the ball and could kick hard. The NimbRo robots were more stable and had advantages in one vs. one fights. Consequently, they won the game 4:1 after 2:0 score at half time. 
In the second game, our robots met team SIOR from Korea. In this game, our new NimbRo-OP robot entered the tournament and scored its first official goal. With the help of Dynaped, the game ended 7:0 for NimbRo (after 4:0 at half time).

Our team NimbRo won the TeenSize soccer competition,  technical challenge, and received the Louis Vuitton Best Humanoid Award.

In the final, our robots met the team CIT Brains from Japan. Both teams already played the final 2010 in Singapore. It was a very exciting game where both teams played with two capable field players and no goalie. In the first half, the NimbRo robots were not going for the ball enough. The game was open, which is reflected by the score of 2:2 at half time. After a programming adjustment during the break, the NimbRo robots Copedo and Dynaped had an advantage in the second half. They scored four more goals while the Japanese robots scored only once. The game ended 6:3 for NimbRo. After the competition, our robots were elected for the Louis Vuitton Best Humanoid Award by the 30 team leaders of the entire Humanoid League.

Our soccer robots did the Technical Challenges very well. Dynaped learned a new ball and dribbled it through six obstacles and into the goal. Copedo picked up a ball outside the field and threw it in, across the entire field. Both robots passed the ball four times back and forth between obstacles and scored at the end of the Double-pass Challenge. Together, this gave a perfect score of 30 points for the Technical Challenges.
In the semi-final, our robots met again team SHAYAN. The Iranian team improved there robot a lot, such that frequently two opponents were at the ball. After clearing these situations, our robots Dynaped (first half) and Copedo (second) half scored reliably. The game ended 6:0 for NimbRo after 3:0 at half time.
In the evening, a 3 vs. 3 demonstration game was played. Our three robots played vs. robots of the three other teams.

In the last round robin game, our robots met team DARwIn-XOS from USA. Both teams played with only one robot -- we used Dynaped in the first half and Copedo in the second half. Because there were some interruptions our robots scored only nine goals. With 9:0 points and 23:0 goals, NimbRo wins the round robin.

We participate at RoboCup 2012 in Mexico City in the Humanoid League TeenSize competition with the robots Dynaped, Copedo, and Bodo.
In the first round robin game, our robots met the team SHAYRAN from Iran. After some diffuculties that our robots had in the first half, Dypaped scored reliably in the second half and the game ended early 10:0 for NimbRo.
In the afternoon, our robots met the team CIT Brains from Japan in the second round robin game. Both teams had technical difficulties with their robots. While the japanese field player quickly approached the ball and also kicked it towards our goal, the NimbrRo robots still had an advantage. After 3:0 at half time, the game ended 4:0 for NimbRo.

We won the 2011 Humanoid Soccer TeenSize tournament.

In the TeenSize final, our robots Dynaped and Bodo met the team KMUTT from Thailand. The Taiwanese team had a good defense. Nevertheless, the score was 6:0 at half time. The game ended early at a score of 10:0 for our team.

Our robots continued with round robin games and met again team KMUTT from Thailand. They improved their play. In particular, the KMUTT goalie jumped reliably and saved many goals. Hence, the result was only 8:0 for our team. The second game vs.  AcYut 4 from India was won by our robots 10:0.
