About Japan Robot Week 2014
"Service robot, such as nursing robot and life support robot, and disaster response robot has great potential as a new industry in the 21th century.

In Japan, which is seriously facing aging society, government is taking big efforts to development and installation of supporting robot to advance senior’s self-reliance and remove burdens of care givers, and it’s market is rapidly increasing. On the other hand, several kinds of disaster robot and maintenance robot for social infrastructure are also progressing day by day.

Japan Robot Week, which is held on alternate year with ‘iREX’ exhibition, especially is focusing on service robots and related technologies/components all together.

We are also planning ‘The 6th Robot Award’Commendation ceremony and exhibition, Joint exhibition of Universities and Laboratories , and other fascinating events, which would stimulate the business talk and technology exchange regarding service robot.

We are very looking forward to see all of you at the venue!"

We're SOOOO Going to be There!
Japanese robotics, particularly assistive (service) robotics, is a major area of interest and focus for AkihabaraNews. We'll shoot photos and video, talk with industry and media insiders, and produce a well-rounded body of content that fully explains and encapsulates the Japan Robot Week experience. 

Our editors will be on the scene (mostly Editor Reno, the robodorkiest among us), so if you see the corny green pig nametag, come say hello!
