Who needs people? Eindhoven students win world robot football cup

The Netherlands might not be present at the World Cup in Russia but students at Eindhoven University of Technology have taken the world RoboCup title after beating a Portuguese team 1-0 at the final in Montreal.

It is the fourth time the Eindhoven team, known as Tech United, have taken the title. They lost the final last year to a team from China.

The Eindhoven team consists of five robots, including a striker named Robodinho, and dozens of students as ‘support staff’. The match is played on a field 18 metres by 12 metres and once the whistle is blown to start the game, the robots play without human interference.
