On May 10 2009, Spelman College's robot soccer team, the SpelBots, competed at the RoboCup Japan Open in Osaka. Spelman was one of two teams competing in the Humanoid league, using the new Nao humanoid robots that have replaced the Sony AIBO as the RoboCup standard platform. After five matches and a penalty kick segment against their opponent, the Fukuoka Institute of Technology, RoboCup officials declared the competition a draw.
