The lighting conditions were challenging as there is a significant amount of natural light coming in through the windows.
The event will also include opportunities for the public to participate in RoboCup-related activities, matches and penalty shoot outs, through gamepads and Animazoo motion capture technology. There will also be a public seminar on the Saturday presenting the philosophy and contributions of RoboCup to the general public. Participants will be expected to contribute a 15 minutes presentation of their teams aimed at the public as part of this seminar.
On Monday, August 2nd, we were joined by ex professional footballers John Hartson (Arsenal and Wales) and Malcolm Allen (Newcastle and Wales) who will be testing their skills against our Nao robots!
