The 6th Robot Contest, organized by JICA and the Ministry of National Education (MoNE) was held on May 15-16 in Ankara. The contest was launched with the opening remarks by Undersecretary Associate Professor Emin ZARARSIZ on behalf of the Minister of National Education, and H.E. Kiyoshi ARAKI, Japan's Ambassador to Turkey.

This Robot Contest was originally started in 2001 as a local competition in Izmir province, based on the advice of Japanese experts dispatched for JICA's Technical Cooperation Project entitled, "Establishment of Industrial Automation Technologies Departments in Anatolian Technical High Schools". The competition has become very popular each successive year, and in February 2007 it was elevated to a national competition, hosted jointly by JICA and the Ministry of National Education. Accordingly, this is the 6th national competition.

This year's theme is titled "Wounds of Earthquake are Bound up by Robots", based on the occurrence of two destructive earthquakes in Turkey and Japan in 2011. There are three categories in the robot competition: Sumo, Mini Sumo and Line Tracing. The two-day event attracted 652 teams from across the country. Prizes were awarded to the winners in each category. The final results of the competition are as listed in the tables below.

Also in this year's competition two organizing committee members, Mr. Takeshi KANAI and Mr. NASU, of ALL JAPAN ROBOT-SUMO TOURNAMENT came to Turkey to observe the Robot Contest and to invite the first three rank SUMO Category Teams to the 24th ALL JAPAN ROBOT-SUMO TOURNAMENT, to be held in Japan in December 2012.

Moreover, the chief executive officer of JS Robotics, Mr. Jin SATO, was cordially invited by Ambassador ARAKI to this year's Robot Contest where he made a special demonstration of a computer-controlled robot, which is a very popular robot technology among young Japanese. Mr. SATO, who has been in robot technology research and development for 40 years, revealed the robot's configuration to the students after the demonstration.

Lastly, this year MoNE concluded an agreement with TRT (GD of Turkish Radio and Television) channel to produce a TV program documenting the milestones of robot contests, the preparation of teams through the creation and innovation of their robots, the meetings of the organizing steering committee, and this year's lively robot contest event itself.
