Team Reports

Home robot team Sportshall robot team Fire fighter robot team Mapping team House construction consultation
Home robot team develops a concept to be utilized at home for fetching things, cleaning and vacuuming. It utilizes a sophisticated trunk-like actuator. Sports hall robot team develops a concept for large halls where the robot can participate in ball games and perform cleaning and ball-picking tasks. Fire fighter robot team develops a fire fighter robot for large public areas for rapid in-situ fire extinguishing. Mapping team presents a ceil-walking robot and concentrates on sensing and navigation activities of Ceilbot. House construction consultant tells about structures and mounting methods to be used for safe mounting of the Ceilbot.
