Abstract
Student Education Utilizing the Development of Autonomous Mobile Robot for Robot Competition

Illustration of the robot competition

The purpose of our education approach is the giving the knowledge and the experience for the research activity to the freshman student who assigned the Lab. We think that “the interaction between the robot and the real world information which is observed by sensor” is important for the student education for student’s research in the Lab. Here, the interaction means how perform the robot based on the real world information which is observed by sensors. The development of the mobile robot which work in Robot competition (Tsukuba Challenge) requires “the interaction between the mobile robot and real world.” For this reason, we think that this activity (participating in the Tsukuba Challenge anf development of the mobile robot) is effective for the student education, and we educate the student by utilizing the development of the mobile robot for Tsukuba Challenge. Although our approach performed in short span, we achieve the good result. For example, the students achieves the research outcome by utilizing the learned skill, and submitted the paper to the academic conference. We verified that our education approach is effective for improvement the student education and motivation.
