It’s not a case of “go big or go home” when competing at RoboCup, but if we’re ever going to see the project’s goal of winning against a human team by 2050, we’re going to have to improve full-size robots. RoboCup 2011 will take place this July in Istabul, Turkey and already some of the teams competing in the Adult-size league have uploaded their team’s qualification video. Suralp, Turkey’s first full-size humanoid robot, was officially unveiled for the first time last year, though it is not expected to compete.
Videos from Team JEAP and Dutch Robotics follow after the break. There’s still a number of other full-size robots to look forward to, including those from RoboErectus and CIT Brains that have yet to be uploaded.
