Galacticos FIRST PLACE in Torneo Mexicano de Robotica 2018

We won again! (updated May 28, 2018)

After four years of ups and downs with soccer robots in the Mexican Robotics Tournament (Torneo Mexicano de Robotica, TMR), we returned to the first place!

1st place in TMR 2014
2nd place in TMR 2015
4th place in TMR 2016
3rd place in FNR 2016 Portugal
6th place in TMR 2017
1st place in TRM 2018
1st place in FNR 2018 Portugal

Our first team of young roboticists, now from the Instituto de Robótica de Xalapa (Robotics Institute of Xalapa), Galacticos, won the FIRST PLACE in the Mexican Robotics Tournament 2018 (TMR 2018), held in Monterrey, NL, in the category RoboCup Junior Soccer LightWeight.

In TMR 2014 we won the first place also with soccer robots, when our Galacticos team was made up of 12 and 13 years old children. That year we participated in RoboCup 2014 in Brazil.

We are going to RoboCup 2018 in Montreal, Canada

The first place in the TMR 2018 gives us the right to compete in the most important robotics event at international level,  RoboCup 2018, which will be held in Montreal, Canada, from June 17 to 22.

Thanks to our experience of these four years, and international participation in Brazil (2014) and Portugal (2016 and 2018), we know that we have to work much harder to lead a highly competitive team, so we look for donations and sponsorship.
