Since 1991 Japan it has been held as “NHK University Robocon” in which universities from all over Japan participate, but since 2015, technical colleges and universities have been able to participate, and the name has been changed to “NHK Student Robocon”. In this year’s competition, 39 teams from all over Japan applied, and 22 teams were selected through document screening, the first video screening, and the second video screening. Two teams from Aichi Prefecture, Toyohashi University of Technology and our school, will participate, and our school will be applying for the first time and participating for the first time.
Although there was a significant delay in arriving at the venue on the day of the test run and robot check due to transportation delays and cancellations due to the typhoon, the students were able to respond quickly to problems that occurred at the venue with knowledge, experience, and ideas, and were able to demonstrate a performance comparable to that of the university team in the actual tournament.
