RoboCup achievements within the last 3 years :

  • RoboCup 2006: no notable achievement. Scored 1 goal.


  • RoboCup 2005: first participation in a RoboCup event. Scored 7 goals in competition. Accessed to the 2nd round-robin. Finished 4th and 7th in technical challenges.


  • German Open 2005: first participation in a regional event. Scored 3 first goals in competition.


Contributions to the RoboCup MSL community :

  • Many public presentations and shows are made throughout the year, allowing to promote the RoboCup MSL. As an example, for 3 consecutive years, Robofoot presented a show to thousands of people at the Montreal Science Center.


  • Robofoot has appeared many times on local and national television and radio stations, giving a valuable presence of the RoboCup MSL in Canada. See our complete media coverage.


  • Robofoot is present in many major public events. For example, it has been recognized twice at the Gala Forces AVENIR. These events are another excellent opportunity to locally promote the RoboCup MSL.


Declaration if the team will be part of a mixed team :

  • No. Being the only North American team in the MSL, such collaboration is difficult.


  • Still, Robofoot ÉPM could be interested in playing in a mixed team in a feasable scenario.
