Humanoid Robot Sumo European Championship

Last weekend, the RobotChallenge 2010 took place in Vienna, allegedly Euope's largest robot challenge event, in connection with the Robot Sumo European Championship 2010.
MCP Mike Brandl made European Champion in the category "Humanoid Robot Sumo" with a NXT Robot called Evil Bill (while Bill's brother Evil Ted made Third):



Two more NXT robots by Mike made Second and Fourth in the Humanoid Robot Sprint challenge.

Hail Mike, European Humanoid Robot Sumo King!

Have a look at his elaborate web site on the event - in German, though, but there are a lot of pictures and movies.

Really like the last fight :-)

Congrats Mike!

Right! Determined composure defeats idle flailing.

Who has met Mike once finds the old saying approved: "Each robot design reflects the character of its creator" ... ;)

When I met Mike he did walk faster than his walking robots.
