What is

Robotic Innovation for People

Innovation Challenge is an organization that solves problems that people throughout the country have by providing innovative solutions. Also we promote challenges to solve those problems. Since 2016 we have hosted a search and find alpine rescue robot contest. In 2017 we held a self-driving bus demonstration test to support the transportation disadvantaged people. We are planning to host livelihood support contests for elderlies and people with disabilities. All the contests are held with the support and cooperation of communities, local governments and sponsor companies.
