The RoboCup-Team "T'n'T" which is sponsored by CoTeSys won the worldchampionship in the team ranking. The two brothers Benno and Jonas Timmermann are two very successful RoboCup Players in their age group.

The RoboCup-Team "T'n'T" which is sponsored by CoTeSys won the worldchampionship in the team ranking. The two brothers Jonas and Benno Timmermann sustaniated their superiority in Graz.

The tournament was played in a super-team system. Which means that each team forms together with two other teams a so called "super-team". The composition of the super team is drawn and the points count for the whole team. "T'n'T" played together with "C-Palb" from Germany as well and the Iranian girls-team "Ariana". Even though "T'n'T" won all their games the super-team was only placed 12th after the second day of qualification because their partners were not so strong. With joint forces the robots of the other teams were improved overnight. Hence, a 13:12-victory of the Iranian girls secured the finals. 

The cornerstone for the success was laid by Jonas and Benno by winning against one of the strongest competitors  - a team from Iran. Even though the only led by one goal at half time, the final score of 22:8 showed a different picture.

Jonas (18) and Benno (16) play in the discipline "Soccer 2vs2 Version B", which can be described as the top class for robot soccer in their age class. Since the pitch is not bordered the technical requirements rise. The ball is about the size of a tennis ball and it beams infrared rays so the robots know where the ball is. 

The cooperation between CoTeSys and "T'n'T" started at the Hannover Messe 2009. The booth of CoTeSys and the RoboCup German Open were in the same hall.So one thing lead to another: The general manager Dr. Uwe Haass met the brothers in Hannover and was very delighted by the skills and enthusiams of the Timmermann brothers. Soon after the Hannover Messe te CoTeSys' Executive Group decided to sponsor "T'n'T". We congratulate to this outstanding success.
