Introduction

VDL Robot Sports is a restart of the Philips RoboCup Team, which participated in the RoboCup Middle Size League competition from 2002 till 2006, when it achieved a 3rd place during the world championships. Like its parent Philips RoboCup team, it is an industrial team, meaning that its participants are all employed by Dutch high-tech companies, primarily in the Eindhoven region. The team will participate with the intention to investigate what must be added to our current engineering practices for high-tech systems to be able to develop teams of autonomous robotic systems.

VDL Robot Sports is part of the Dutch Cybervalley Foundation.
