According to a CMU news release, CMU’s robot soccer team, the CMDragons, placed second in the RoboCup 2013 finales mid-sized league. They were beaten by the ZJUNlict team from China’s Zhejiang University. In the news release, Manuela Veloso of CMU had this to say about the team’s performance:
“We came in second place, in the closest possible way to first. The team from China even asked us to go up on the stage together with them for the award ceremony. Our CMDragons team was remarkably new, with new low-level skills and tactics, dynamic planning, a great goalie and defense, new robots and the best attacker robot ever.”
