Naova : definition

Naova is the new robotic scientific club at ETS founded by Jonathan Fortin.

It has for goal to participate in robotic soccer games during the main international robotic competition: the Robocup. During the games, robot teams compete to score a maximum of goals against the opponent. The robots are entirely autonomous and need to be programmed to play as a team without exterior intervention.

Every team are composed of the same standard robots, there has to be a difference in the program dictating its comportment.
