Team from TOHOKU University completes Tsukuba Challenge

Congratulations to Tadokoro Laboratory at TOHOKU University
for successfully completing the Tsukuba Challenge ’09!

Otherwise known as the “Real World Robot Challenge”, this annual event in Tsukuba Japan requires robots to autonomously navigate a 1km (0.6mi) long course that they have not previously encountered.  Along the way, the robots must avoid everyday obstacles such as pedestrians and bicycles.  See below for photos of the Tadokoro Team and their RMP 200.
