Japan Robot Week 2018

Japan Robot Week is a trade show focusing on “service robots”. This event alternates each year with the cooler sounding IREX (the International Robot Exhibition).

If you’re wondering what a service robot is, the organizers give examples such as nursing robots, life support robots (we’re thinking this means general support rather than one that follows you with your kidney dialysis machine) and disaster response robots.

With the huge increase in the popularity of drones and the recent release of the SoftBank robot ‘Pepper’ there should be some interesting kit on display.

Entry is free, but you need to register in advance.

      Ah, it looks like they don’t have a way for visitors to register yet – only exhibitors. Maybe check back in a month or so. I’ll keep an eye on it and try to post something on Facebook if I can.

    • Registration is now open!
