Profile :

Robot Club Toulon is a french team participating to the RoboCup in Middle Size League. Coming from Toulon University in the south of France, this team considers RoboCup MSL as an excellent challenge for developping innovating hardware and algorithms in cooperative robotics and artificial intelligence. Even if it is a recent team in the MSL, its goal is to make a team able to play with humans in safe conditions as soon as possible.

Most research topics :

Electromagnetics, Sensor Fusion, Artificial Intelligence, Dynamic control, Cooperative Robotics.
