NHK GAKUSEI ROBOCON 2024 was held at the Nihon Kogakuin Arena (Ota-ku, Tokyo) on Sunday, June 9, and the TUT Robocon Club "Toyohashi☆Robocons" won the championship, becoming the first team in competition history to win three consecutive titles.

The theme of the 2024 competition was Harvest Day, inspired by the terraced rice paddies of Vietnam. Each team of two robots competed in the tasks of planting rice, harvesting, and transporting the harvested grain to a warehouse, with the team that completed its task first winning.

TUT faced off against the University of Tokyo in the finals, and in a closely contested match, won the championship. With this achievement, the team will represent Japan at the ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest to be held on Sunday, August 25 in Quang Ninh, Vietnam, for the second year in a row, aiming to win the world championship for the second year in a row.

<Comments from the representative of the the TUT Robocon Club >
I would like to thank everyone who has supported and encouraged our activities, as well as my colleagues who have continued to build our robot from the announcement of the rules at the end of August last year until today, aiming to be the strongest in Japan together. I am more than happy to have won the NHK GAKUSEI ROBOCON for the third consecutive year and to have earned the right to challenge the ABU Robot Contest, the world championship.

Since we will be representing Japan, we will bring back to Japan our success and achievements that will be worthy of the Japanese flag. We will continue to work toward our next goal of winning the ABU Robocon for the second year in a row. We look forward to your continued support for the "TOYOHASHI ROBOCONS".
