Symposium



ImPACT Tough Robotics Challenge (TRC) Symposium

Saturday, Dec. 5, 09:30-15:30

Room 201, Bldg. 57, Nishi-Waseda Campus, Waseda Univ.


Organizer

Satoshi Tadokoro (ImPACT Tough Robotics Challenge Program Manager, Tohoku Univ.)


Overview of TRC

Jointly research and develop the key fundamental technologies for outdoor robots (accessibility, sensing and perception, recovery from failure, and environmental compatibility) in a cooperative competitive environment, with the aim of achieving remote autonomous robots that can work robustly without faltering even in the unknown, time-varying extreme disaster environments. Conduct focused field evaluations to make robot technologies and their performance visible, and lower the barriers to social application.
