RoboCup CoSpace Rescue Competition
From the 23rd to 25th March 2017, Computer Club participated in the Robocup CoSpace Rescue competition. There were several different areas to compete in, such as the CoSpace Rescue, CoSpace Rescue Line and RCJ Soccer. The RoboCup competition aimed to help us understand how coding could be applied in different ways, which in this case was robotics. It was an eye-opening and interesting experience, as we learnt how to use our programming and coding skills to not only move robots around in the physical space, but also manoeuvre robots in virtual reality. The training helped us to understand how the codes we used could manipulate the robot’s movement. From the fundamentals learned during training, we improved our scores progressively by changing the codes and trying them out.
During the competition, we were able to put our skills to use by competing with other schools and improving our codes along the way. We also learnt how to use advanced actions to allow the robot to do specific actions beyond the basic programming that we were first exposed to. We also participated in a friendly match (where no points were recorded), so that we could gauge our readiness in comparison to other teams, before eventually taking part in the finals.
Although we did not make it to the finals, the experience we had was priceless. After participating in the competition, not only did we gain more knowledge in the field of robotics, our interest in applying our coding skills was also greatly piqued.
