Robots play football - level 2
Technology is everywhere nowadays. But football played by robots is still something unusual.
There was a Robocup competition in the Netherlands. Teams of robots from different countries of the world played this popular game. This activity of the robots was chosen to draw more public attention to the use of robots.
The game of football is very difficult for the robots but it's great for testing new technologies. These technologies can be later applied in other kinds of robots, like rescue robots for instance.
Robocup has set itself a goal that by 2050, a team of football robots must be able to beat the human world champions.
Interesting words: draw (get), for instance (for example), goal (something you want to do successfully).
