Soccer is known as the world game because it brings people together from all over the planet. RoboCup is no different.
Every year, national boundaries collapse to make way for a shared interest and love in the field of robotics.
Mohammad Hossein Delavaran is an engineering student at the Qazvin Islamic Azad University in Iran and an integral member of Team MRL.
“When I came to the university, I didn’t know robotics existed,” he said.
“Then one day I was walking down the hall at university and saw a group of people sitting there holding their robots and asking people to come and join them.
“It was interesting to me, so that day I filled out the form and I was in.”
Mohammad relishes in the international friendships he has made through RoboCup.
“It’s an honour to participate in RoboCup. We meet friends and coworkers from around the world and every year we share knowledge, we share our achievements,” Mohammad said.
“It’s a growing community, and it’s very lovely to see that.
“Every time I come here I go back to my country with a lot more knowledge, a lot more experience.”
ACS was the STEM Champion sponsor of RoboCup 2019.
