Realize your concept!

electrical parts of the rescue robots (in the development phase)

I remember well that all of our team members thought about the concept and discussed how to realize it. And I still cannot forget the excitement when our robots worked properly at the contest. Everyone, please do your best!

Mr Edo is currently developing and testing control technologies for aerial ladder trucks. Even after graduating ResCon, he is still thinking about saving many lives actually. It would be very exciting when such a difficult theme for saving lives is realized and works out properly!

Thinking back on ResCon, I had been absorbed in ResCon, losing my sense of time. Conflicts of opinions and the achievement by overcoming the failures, such experiences and emotions at that time are still the cornerstone of my attitude towards work even now. Please do not concern the result too much and fully enjoy the ResCon!

Forgetting time and sometimes conflicting is certainly a proof of seriousness of the entire team. Please enjoy ResCon, as well as difficulties and adversities, with your best friends!

ResCon experience: 5 times in total in 2007 through 2013

When I joined ResCon, I did everything from robot design and programming to progress management. Such a wide range of experience has been helpful in conducting my research. The experience you gain from ResCon would be like nothing else. So, please do your best!

Researchers are expected to master their specialties by thinking not only from their own field but also from various perspectives. It is the attraction of ResCon that one can have diverse experiences such as team management besides just developing robots.
