Team JoiTech-SPL is originally derived from RoboCup team JoiTech, which participated in competitions
of Humanoid AdultSize League since Japan Open 2010. Team JoiTech is composed of masters and doctoral students at
Emergent Robotics Laboratory, Osaka University. This team was first started up as a new team in cooperation with students
at Osaka Institute of Technology in RoboCup Japan Open 2010. The team name, JoiTech, is an acronym for "JEAP and Osaka Institute
of Technology", and it also means "joint team with Institute of Technology" and "enjoy technology". The team had focused on Humanoid League
AdultSize for several years. In RoboCup 2013 it took the league champion and best humanoid award. Then we decided to shift our
focus to Standard Platform League. As the new team also kept the spirit of the original team, we design our team name
by adding "SPL" to the original team name "JoiTech".
