World Tech United, the TU/e robot soccer team, will return to Eindhoven next Monday. The robot footballers won two medals at the World Championship in Brazil yesterday. The soccer team won the gold medal and care robot Amigo won the silver medal in its category.
By winning this year’s title, TechUnited took revenge on the Chinese, who beat them last year. Then the tournament was held in Eindhoven, which made the defeat extra painful, even more so because the Eindhoven team had been world champion in 2012 as well.
The team, consisting of about 20 people, will arrive at Schiphol Airport around noon on Monday. That morning relatives are going to travel to the airport by bus to welcome the team members. They will be travelling back to Eindhoven together. The bus is expected to arrive at the TU/e between 14:00 and 14:30 and the team will receive a warm welcome there.
