About us

With a team of bachelor and master students from the University of Amsterdam we program robots to play football by themselves. With these robots we compete in competitions around the whole world. By programming them in advance, we let them see with their cameras, hear with their microphones and communicate with their wifi capabilities to remove the need for a human controller.

The Dutch Nao Team organises on Wednesday 10th of March an OpenLab. We will hold a livestream at 17:00-18:00 where we will show a small demo and hold an Q&A. Do you have interest in robotics and possibly be interested in working with them?

The Dutch Nao Team is a group of bachelor and master students focused on programming robots to play football autonomously in yearly competitions such as the Robocup. In 2019 we ended up in the top 9 (of 24) of the standard platform league. Furthermore the Dutch Nao Team performs additional activities like giving demo’s and presentations, provide information to robot owners, giving out bachelor projects and providing thesis subjects for bachelors.

To be able to play football we solve all kinds of problems in different domains such as computer-vision, locomotion, behavior, code optimisation and framework management. Languages we use are C++, Python and Bash. 

If you find this interesting, then we would like to invite you to our livestream. The livestream is from the lab with some robot footage and a Q&A session. You can sign up by pressing the button below! We will send you an invitation to the livestream before it begins.
