Rescue Robot Demonstration (for the general public)

Some robots awarded in Rescue Robot Contest (RRC) 2010 in Japan will be invited to SICE WEEK venue to demonstrate their rescue performance. RRC is a robot contest competed by mainly university students, in which the 1/6 scale robots search and rescue 1/6 scale simulated victims (rescue dolls) . The RRC robot is not real one, but it involves some basic and important technologies for the real rescue robot, e.g., tele-operation and victim manipulation. SICE SI-division has been supported RRC activities. The audience of the demonstration will understand the essences of rescue robot technologies and the passion of the Japanese students. The RRC home page is and the videos are available in YouTube (search with “rescue robot contest 9th”).

Rescue Crawler Operation Experience (for children)


RRC Robots


Children can operate "Rescue Crawler", a toy of a rescue robot, on simulated rubbles to understand the mobility on complex terrain. Rescue Crawler had been developed by RRC and Tamiya Inc. The experience could stimulates children’s interest to science and technology.
