Competitions

Under the name Fontys@Work, Fontys University of Applied Science started competing in the RoboCup@Work league in 2017. The team, consisting of students from the Adaptive Robotics minor, went the RoboCup German Open in Magdeburg Germany to compete with their Kuka Youbot.

In 2018 the RoboHub Eindhoven was founded by new students from the Adaptive Robotics minor as the successor of the Fontys@Work team. During this year a new platform under the name Faraday was in development for competing in the RoboCup@Work. The idea was to compete one more year with the Kuka Youbot platform, while the Faraday was still in development, before switching to the new platform.

A stroke of bad luck caused an unrepairable break of the Kuka Youbot, forcing the team to compete with the still in development Faraday platform during the 2018 season at the RoboCup German Open.

During the RoboCup German Open the team found that the Faraday platform was to bulky for the RoboCup@Work league.

In 2019 the RoboHub Eindhoven competed again in the RoboCup@Work. With a combination of veterans from the previous year and a new group of minor students the team used the new Sui2 platform to compete in both the RoboCup German Open and the RoboCup World Championships in Sydney Australia.

After logistical problems caused Sui2 to arrive after the RoboCup World Championships had already started.

In 2020 the RoboHub Eindhoven will continue competing in the RoboCup@Work during the RoboCup German Open in Magdeburg Germany between April 24th and April 26th; And the RoboCup World Championships in Bordeaux France between June 23rd and June 29th.
