Student Experience - Robot Japan 2023

Date of publication: 13.11.2023 Start date: 16.11.2023 Start time: 13:15 Location Faculty of Electrical Engineering, UL, Lecture room P2

The Robot Japan 2023 excursion took place in September 2023 and was attended by students from different courses in the 3rd year of their 1st and 2nd cycle studies.

The excursion was designed to broaden the students' horizons. They learned about the Japanese academic and research environment, their business world, the industrial environment of high-tech companies, as well as the rest of the Japanese culture and way of life. At the same time, it was probably the largest professional delegation from Slovenia to Japan in 2023, helping to strengthen the Japan-Slovenia relationship in general and specifically in the field of robotics.

The tour covered the route from Tokyo to Kitakyushu, each day with a visit to a university and a company leading the way in robotics. In total, eight universities or institutes and five companies were visited (Yaskawa, Fanuc, Daihen, Toyota, Omron; Waseda University, University of Yamanashi, Meijo University, University of Fukui, ATR Institute, NAIST, Osaka University, Kyushu Institute of Technology).

On Thursday, 16 November, at 13.15, a presentation of the excursion will take place in Lecture Room P2, after an introduction and presentation of the excursion, the specifics of industrial, collaborative humanoid and other robots will be demonstrated. This will be followed by a set of personal experiences: culture, food, religion, passenger transport, language and writing.

Speakers will be students Sašo Domadenik, Anamarija Hauptman, Andraž Jerman, Gregor Osredkar, Maruša Petrovčič, Aleksandar Stefanov and Marko Munih.

You are cordially invited.
