In the FIRA Roboworld 2103, held in Kuala Lumpur Aug. 24-29, the Tamkang team grabbed two gold medals, one silver and one bronze in the Robot Soccer (Robosot) category, and another gold in the Humanoid Tournament (HuroCup) category.
The robots are equipped with high-speed cameras and hardware controls and operated by the team members, said Wong Ching-chang, a leader of the Tamkang team.
Like regular soccer, robot-soccer has well-defined game rules. The FIRA Cup event is organized into several categories, including the Robosot, the Micro-Robot Soccer Tournament (MiroSot) and the Huro Cup.
The games are played under the watchful eyes of a human referee and the human participants, who are the robot players' managers and trainers.
