(main article of this event here)
The team was in Rome testing the MYRABot robot. There, we learned different topics about vision, grasping, and natural language understanding. We tested the MB+ (MYRABot+) robot, a modification of MYRABot. Other robots were introduced in this competition, such as REEM from PAL Robotics.
Hack For Good 2013
3D Scanning and Printing
During the last two weeks Francisco Sedano gave a brief introduction to 3D prototyping technologies that can be applied to a wide variety of engineering applications. The training gave the students the knowledge to develop and use 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies.

- We were proud members of the Spanish Team (SPITeam) in the RoboCup Standard Platform providing a goalkeeper. SPITeam was a joint effort of the [robotics group] of the Rey Juan Carlos University, Rovira y Virgili University and Universidad de León. Last Team Description paper can be found here. Our last competition entrance was in Instambul 2011
- We were previously also proud members of the TeamChaos RoboCup SPL team. We have contributed the goalie to the team for the RoboCup 2009 and German Open 2009.
