This is the qualification page for the AllemaniACs RoboCup Team for the 2011 RoboCup Competition in the @Home league.
In late 2005 there were rumors about ...
This year we, the AllemaniACs, gave a little talk and a demo for participants of the Schüleruniversität.
Specifically, Caesar introduced itself to the students and we explained some details about our approaches to Localization and Collision Avoidance, Navigation, and Path Planning. We also demonstrated some capabilities of one of our Naos.
We've arrived in Graz, Austria to participate the RoboCup 2009 which is being held at the Stadthalle in Graz, Austria, obviously.
We'll try to keep you posted on what's happening and how we are doing.
Robots are machines that exist to perform specific functions or tasks in the physical world. To achieve this, a control software is required on the robot that drives its actuators, perceives the environment with its sensors and makes decisions and executes actions. The Fawkes robot software framework provides an integrated software package to develop such systems.
The 2009 Team:
- Prof. G. Lakemeyer, Ph.D., Head of Department
- Stefan Schiffer, Ph.D. Student, TeamLeader
- Tim Niemüller, Master student
- Masrur Doostdar, Master student

We've just arrived in Suzhou, China to participate the RoboCup 2008 which is being held at the Suzhou Expo Center (event link, GoogleMaps) in Suzhou Industrial Park in Suzhou, China, obviously.
Since we arrived not until today, there's not much to tell yet. But since we have Internet access in our accomodation (the Student Dormitory), we'll try to keep you posted on what's happening and how we are doing as fast as we can.
We've just arrived in Hannover to participate the RoboCup German Open 2008 which are being held at Hannover Fair.
This year, we have four participating teams which are as follows: We, the
AllemaniACs from RWTH Aachen University,
IAIS-BIT from FH Bonn-Rhein-Sieg,
Meteor-M from Switzerland, and
Homer from Uni Koblenz. There is a section on RoboCup@Home at the German Open website.
Oh, one more thing: take a look at http://planet.fedoraproject.org/, where the blog posts of Tim appear.
