Who are we?

WF Wolves is a part of the Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences and is supported by various faculties. We are always looking for new members, as well as supporting professors, partners and sponsors, with whom we can start new projects in order to build more on our successes.

What are we doing?

Our team WF Wolves entered the Mixed Reality League for the first time in 2007. We won the world championship at RoboCup 2008 in Suzhou (China) and 2010 in Singapore. In addition, we have been in the Humanoid League since 2009 first in the KidSize and since 2015 also TeenSize. There we won the first place at the German Open 2013 and achieved good results at the world championships. After entering 2012 in the new Robocup@Work league, we took third place in the German Open and the World Cup in 2013 with our youBot.

Humanoid League

Humanoid robots – Focus of development

The humanoid robots must bring many skills to participate in the football matches. Motion sequences like walking on two legs or shooting are great challenges for a robot. But also the processing of the image data and interpretation of these are the focus of the development. In addition to the software is always worked again […]

Humanoid – Bot Evolution

 Detlef since June 2014 Rule changes for 2014 have caused us to build larger robots. For this, we have adapted the Nimbro OP to a size of 85 cm. The aluminum and carbon parts were manufactured as before in the university workshop. We created plastic parts, like the head and the hands, with our 3D […]

Humanoid League

Since 2009 we are represented in the Humanoid Kid Size League. The special thing about this league is that the robots have to be very similar to humans. For example, they must run on two legs and have physical-human characteristics. As a further difficulty, only sensors are allowed, which also man has. We use cameras […]

@Work League

The RoboCup @ Work League started in 2012. The aim of this league is to develop an autonomous robot that is to be used in the industrial environment and to handle complex tasks there. These tasks range from pure navigation within the arena, which in this league, e.g. A workshop simulates the interaction with objects […]

@Work focus

Simulation For testing new software and for machine learning, it is important to have a simulator that simulates the behavior of the real robot as accurately as possible. This does not stop with the mere movements, so also the kind of the control must be modeled after the original down to the smallest detail. Localization […]
