The Standard Platform League’s Competition Day 2 at RoboCup 2019 was busy with main competition games, mixed team games and an open challenge.

Open Challenge

In the evening on Competition Day 2, an Open Research Challenge was held. During this challenge, teams were invited to give a short presentation on SPL-related research that occurred this year. Six teams presented research talks:

In addition to these six presentations, all twenty SPL teams brought and displayed a poster describing their RoboCup-related research within the past year.

Competition Day 2

Competition day 2 of the SPL started with Promotion Games between the league’s worst-performing teams in the first day’s Champion’s Cup and the best-performing teams in the first day’s Challenge Shield. Interestingly, each of the best-performing teams from the Challenge Shield won their Promotion Game which promoted them to the Champions Cup for the second round robins. It was great to see upward movement from four lower seeded teams.

Afternoon and early evening featured second round robin games in the Champions Cup and Challenge Shield. In the Champions Cup, all games ended as would be expected based on seeds — but there were some some close, exciting matches. For example, UT Austin Villa defeated SPQR 2:0 in Group G.

Berlin United defeated NomadZ 3:0 in Group H, and HULKs defeated Bembelbots 3:1 in Group K.

In the Challenge Shield, there were close games between many teams. For example, first-year team SABANA Herons tied second-year team Naova 1:1 and NTU RoboPAL defeated MiPAL 3:0.

Looking Toward Competition Day 3

Competition day 3 will feature the:

  • End of the Mixed Team Competition round robin (more on this competition tomorrow)
  • Intermediate Round and Quarterfinals for the Champions Cup
  • End of the second round robin for the Challenge Shield and Challenge Shield Semi-final games
