Today's third round robin game ended in an automatic forfeit. Most of us came out of bed early to participate in the game which should have started around 8 o'clock in the morning. But with the team not appearing we did have the field for our own to test the vision and made some good progress with it.
This morning we were able to make TUlip stand stable! All 12 degrees of freedom can now be initalized normally. We will now continue on making the robot walk.

The quality science blog 'Scientific Blogging' wrote an article on the dynamic walking techniques for robots that Daan Hobbelen developed at TU Delft. Dutch Robotics is implementing these techniques in their soccer robots.
