On Sunday August 27th, the ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) 2023 was held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Toyohashi University of Technology’s Robot Contest Club, TOYOHASHI☆ROBOCONS, represented Japan in the contest, and came home with the championship title.

The 2023 competition featured a "ring toss game" with the theme of offering flowers to Angkor Wat, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Cambodia. For their entry, TOYOHASHI☆ROBOCONS created two robots (a rabbit and an elephant), which worked together to toss rings onto a set of poles.

Our university emerged the winner across all the games conducted, and achieved "Chey-Yo" (Victory), which signifies the state of winning points on all of the eight poles that were set up. This makes it the third time that a Japanese representative has won this world championship, while being the first victory for our university. The team also received the ABU Robocon Award, given to the most outstanding robot in the contest.

We would like to thank all those who have supported our team.




本学は全ての試合で、決められた8つのポールの得点を全て獲得した状態「チェイヨー」を達成して勝利し、日本代表としては通算3度目、本学としては初の世界大会優勝を果たしました。また、大会を通じて最も優れたロボットに贈られる「ABU Robocon Award」も受賞しました。
