A team of students and tutors won the bipedal Sprint competition with a Bioloid derivative in Zurich on Sunday 15th June in a record 35 seconds.

The team programmed the robot to operate with gyro and accelerometer feedback to allow it to win the sprint. The Youtube video (see link http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=f3ewKcTu7EQ) shows a run off with two other robots including last year's winner.

Plymouth University have been Mirosot football champions for the last 10 years to 2007. We are now migrating our expertise to bipedal robotics and using them for teaching and research.

We are the only European competitors in Hurosot at the moment.
