for Happiness Towards achieving
a society where
humans and robots
cooperate and coexist.
The World Robot Summit (WRS) consists of two parts: World Robot Challenge (WRC),
a robot competition in which teams from all over the world compete in 4 categories
where use of robots is highly expected; and the World Robot Expo (WRE),
an exhibition that features advanced robots and robotic technologies and provides
a glimpse of robots working in the present and in the future.
We look forward to hosting many participants and visitors at WRS2018
who will come together to see, experience,
and learn about robotics and discuss how people and robots will live together in the future.
We hope that you enjoy WRS2018 and come back to WRS2020
